Hello,

Welcome and thank you for the question.

Bleeding gums is generally a symptoms if gingivitis ( infection and inflammation or the gums). This will also cause bad breath. Sometimes, deficiency of vitamin C and k can also lead to bleeding gums. other causes are smoking, some medicines like those for heart conditions can also cause bleeding gums.

Please consult another dentist for a second opinion. Strong blood supply to the face cannot cause bleeding from the gums.

Broken blood vessels in the face may be caused by damage to the skin from sun exposure and excess dilation from a source of inflammation or irritation such as rosacea acne. They can also occur with age and thinning of the skin and a person may be genetically predisposed to this condition. There is no specific medical treatment for broken blood vessels. Cosmetics like concealers or medicines like retinoids can help to some extent. Laser therapy and sclerotherapy are definitive treatments for broken blood vessels on the face.

I hope this helps.
