Gum bleaching or laser depigmentation of the gums is a safe and simple way to achieve good looking pink gums. The results can be seen immediately.
Dark gums can be caused by many factors. Most commonly, discoloration occurs due to a build-up of melanin in the gum tissue. People who have darker skin are more susceptible to melanin build-up in the gums. Smoking, certain medications and gum diseases may cause gum discoloration to develop as well. Other reason could be amalgam “tattoos” – areas of grey or blue coloring caused by silver filling particles that have migrated to the gum tissue. Patients may have spotty areas of dark gums or uniformly discolored gums. Treatment is also individualized for each patient.
