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
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.
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.
