Gum De-Pigmentation

Dark Gums?
Check laser de-pigmentation

The laser depigmentation procedure, which evaporates the thin top layer of gum tissue and destroys the cells that create melanin, is one of the services offered by the cutting-edge dentistry,  and aesthetic laser surgery clinic in Dubai. Rather than being brown, new tissue that forms throughout the healing process is typically pink.

A laser de-pigmentation procedure can offer you pink gums for the rest of your life if you don’t want to live with discolored gums.

Gum de-pigmentation may be the right procedure for you if you are bothered by the color of your gum tissue.

When too much melanin builds up in the gums, it can cause them to look dark or black rather than pink, which is a condition known as natural hyperpigmentation of the gingival tissue. Smoking, unwanted effects from some drugs, and possibly amalgam fillings are among factors that can contribute to dark gums.

No illness or dysfunction is indicated by the additional pigment. Patients seek treatment because they prefer pink gums since they better show off their teeth.

Patients with highly sensitive gums may feel some discomfort for a brief period of time, but they won’t face issues after the healing.

Within two weeks, full recovery is anticipated, and patients can anticipate being able to speak and eat normally immediately following the procedure. The duration of a gum de-pigmentation procedure can vary depending on the patient’s lifestyle.

    All About Laser Gum Depigmentation

    What is Laser Gum Depigmentation?

    This treatment utilises a laser to gently remove a thin layer of gum tissue containing melanin, the pigment responsible for gum colour. As new, healthy tissue forms during healing, it appears pinker, resulting in a lighter gum line.

    The Treatment Process at Vilafortuny Dubai
    • Consultation: The first step is a free consultation with our dentist to assess your gum health and determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
    • The Procedure: During the treatment, a local anaesthetic is typically applied to minimize discomfort. The laser then precisely vaporises the pigmented tissue layer. The laser’s cauterizing effect minimizes bleeding.
    • Recovery: Healing typically takes around two weeks with minimal discomfort. You can expect to return to normal activities, including speaking and eating, right after the procedure.
    How Long Do the Results Last?

    The results of a single gum depigmentation treatment can be long-lasting, potentially lasting up to 20 years or even a lifetime!

    Treatment Duration

    The procedure itself takes approximately 20-45 minutes, depending on the size and colour intensity of the pigmented area.

    What if There's Residual Pigmentation After Healing?

    We understand that some pigmentation might remain visible after the initial treatment. During your follow-up appointment two to three weeks later, the Dubai based team can assess any remaining pigmentation and remove it as needed.

    Maintaining the Results

    Smoking is a major contributor to gum pigmentation. To ensure optimal results, the team at Vilafortuny Dubai strongly recommend quitting smoking completely after the procedure. You’ll also need to avoid smoking for at least a week following the treatment.

    Cost of Treatment

    The cost depends on whether you choose to treat your upper gums only or both the upper and lower gums. We offer flexible financing options for your convenience.

    Who is a Good Candidate?

    Ideal candidates for this treatment have healthy gums. During your consultation, the dentist will thoroughly assess your gum health to ensure suitability.

    Who Should Not Consider This Treatment?

    This treatment might not be suitable for:

    • Patients with untreated gum disease, where the cause of dark gums is deeper than surface pigmentation.
    • Patients taking blood thinners, as they might experience excessive bleeding during the procedure.
    • Patients with thin gum tissue or exposed tooth roots, as the treatment could lead to increased sensitivity if the laser accidentally exposes more root surface.
