What is gingival depigmentation?

Laser gum depigmentation is a procedure used in cosmetic dentistry to remove black spots or patches on the gums caused by excessive melanin. Melanocytes produce melanin which causes discoloration or dark spots in gums.

As in skin, the darkness of gums is also due to excessive melanin pigmentation.

In this treatment the superficial pigmented layer of gums is removed which in few days is naturally replaced by healthy pink gums. Due to latest development in Dentistry you have better options where you can get this treatment done with use of lasers also.

This is especially effective for people whose dark color gums are visible when they smile thus spoiling the appearance of the face, making them conscious while speaking.

A dental laser can target and ablate the melanocytes, thus reducing the production of melanin in the gingival tissue. Following laser depigmentation, the gingiva results in a lighter and more uniform color of the gums. Among the various techniques used for gingival depigmentation, laser offer a promising therapeutic option since, it is simple, painless and predictable. Laser has been recognized as the most effective and reliable technique having many advantages over scalpel technique as it is relatively blood less and painless surgical technique.
