Laser Gum Depigmentation In Melbourne

Laser gum depigmentation, also known as laser gum bleaching, is a gum lightening cosmetic procedure that uses a dental laser to lighten the colour of the gums.

Get rid of dark gums and achieve a brighter smile with Laser Gum Depigmentation

Gingival hyperpigmentation is a condition in which the gums seem darker than normal. Several factors play a role in the darkening of the gums. A person’s genetic makeup or an imbalance in gum pigmentation are a couple of the things to consider. It is also possible to temporarily discolour your gums by using certain drugs and tobacco use.

Laser gum depigmentation is one of the services we offer at Magical Smiles. A cosmetic procedure called laser gum depigmentation, which is sometimes referred to as laser gum bleaching, uses a dental laser to lighten the gums. Gums can be changed from a dark brown to a beautiful pink shade in just one session, depending on how light you want your gums to be. If you don’t achieve the desired shade of pink gums in the first treatment, you can return for additional sessions.

Laser gum depigmentation can effectively lighten your gums to a healthy shade of pink that may last up to three years.

FAQs about Laser Gum Depigmentation

Laser gingival depigmentation removes the top layer of gum cells. Pinker gums are left behind after eliminating the cells that produce the surface pigment. We can gradually lighten the gingival surface by tracing over the dark pigment using the laser. Gum depigmentation can be done in a single location or over the entire gum surface.
You can have a gorgeous smile with pink gums with little or no recovery time required. After your dental procedure, you may feel mild gum sensitivity or discomfort, which should subside quickly. Normal eating and drinking are permitted if you are comfortable. To be safe, we advise being careful with your gums when eating, brushing, and flossing.
A single session for about 20 minutes is all it takes to complete the laser gum lightening procedure, depending on the colour and size of the dark patch on your gums. It allows you to walk out of the dentist’s office with bright, healthy-looking gums. A second appointment is always an option if you don’t see the expected results after the first one.

Your specific requirements will significantly impact the cost of laser depigmentation. Once we’ve determined the locations that require treatment, we’ll talk about how much the procedure will cost you.

The areas that will be treated are totally up to you, but we will be helping you through the decision process. We provide suggestions to our patients based on what we believe to be the most aesthetically acceptable options available.

Treatment of both upper and lower gums is an option if the patient has visible upper and lower gums when they smile. This will ensure a more consistent appearance. Patients with only visible top gums when they smile may only require treatment for the top gums.

Laser gum depigmentation is an efficient, fast, and painless treatment. Before the procedure begins, we might administer a local anesthetic injection to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. Our highly skilled dentists use a state-of-the-art laser dentistry system to ensure the procedure is done in a pleasant and stress-free way.
A wide range of factors has been implicated in the development of dark gums. Gum pigment imbalance and cultural differences are two examples of these factors. Gum discolouration is a common side effect of smoking and other medications.

Gingival lightening can be accomplished with a whitening agent and a microdermabrasion procedure. Traditional microdermabrasion takes less than an hour and is more time-consuming. After the whitening gel begins to lighten the gum colour, the dentist polishes the gum tissues and eliminates any residual melanin-containing cells with a tool that looks similar to a polishing cup, allowing the whitening gel to work more effectively.

It is also possible to have crown lengthening done instead of laser gum depigmentation. In a healthy mouth without periodontal disease, the placement of the gums is usually dictated by the bone level beneath them. Dental crown lengthening is a traditional surgical technique used to reveal more teeth structure while reducing the gum level.
