Gum Depigmentation


Gum Depigmentation (Gum Bleaching) is a procedure used in cosmetic dentistry to remove black spots or patches on the gums caused by excessive melanin. The normal color of the gum tissue (gingiva) is pink, but excess deposits of melanin can create what seem to be black spots or patches on the gums, creating an aesthetic or cosmetic problem. Discoloration may also be caused by long term use of certain medications.

Laser Gum Depigmentation Technique (Laser Gum Bleaching).

Melanocytes are cells which reside in the basal layer of the gingival epithelium. These cells produce melanin, which are pigments that cause discoloration or dark spots in gums. A dental laser can target and remove the dark patches. The gingiva heals and the result is a lighter and more uniform color of the gums.
