Laser Gum Depigmentation in Caroline Springs

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.

What is Laser Gum Depigmentation?

Dark gums are called gingival hyperpigmentation. Different factors contribute to dark gingival pigmentation. Some of these factors include a person’s cultural background or an imbalance of gum pigment. Certain medications and tobacco use can also discolour your gums temporarily.

At Magical Smiles, we offer laser gum depigmentation. 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. Depending on how light you would like your gums to be, the gums can go from a very dark brown hue to a pleasing pink shade in just one procedure. If, after one visit, you haven’t reached the desired pink gums, you can come in for subsequent treatments. 

Laser gum depigmentation is highly effective in lightening your gums to a healthy shade of pink that can last up to 3 years!

FAQs about Laser Gum Depigmentation

During laser gingival depigmentation, the top layer of cells on the gum is destroyed. In destroying those cells, the surface pigment is destroyed as well, leaving pinker gums behind. The laser traces over the dark pigment, removing the dark spots from the gingival surface until we reach your desired pink shade. We can perform the gum depigmentation procedure on a small spot or an entire surface area of the gums.
With little to no recovery time required, you can enjoy a beautiful smile with pink gums. You may experience moderate gum sensitivity or soreness after your dental treatment, but this should go away fast. If you feel comfortable, you may eat and drink normally after the surgery. To be safe, we recommend being gentle with your gums during eating, brushing, and flossing.
The laser gum whitening treatment time is approximately 20 minutes depending on the dark patch’s colour and size and can usually be finished in just one visit. It gives you the option of leaving the surgery the same day with pink, healthy-looking gums. You can return for more treatments if you don’t have the desired pink gums after one appointment.
The cost of laser depigmentation varies greatly depending on your specific needs. Once we’ve identified the areas that need to be treated, we’ll discuss the procedure cost with you. The areas that are treated are entirely up to you, with our experience guiding you. We make recommendations to our patients based on what is most aesthetically pleasing. If the patient’s upper and lower gums are visible when they smile, we would consider treating both to guarantee that the top and bottom gums have a uniform appearance. Treatment of both the upper and lower gums is not fully necessary if just the top gums are visible when the patient smiles.
Laser gum whitening is a simple, quick, and painless procedure. To ensure your complete comfort, we can give you a local anaesthetic injection before beginning. Our highly trained staff performs the process in a relaxed and comfortable environment using advanced laser dentistry techniques.
Dark gums are linked to a variety of factors. A person’s cultural background or an imbalance of gum pigment are two of these causes. Tobacco usage, as well as the adverse effects of certain drugs, can cause gum discolouration.

A whitening solution combined with a microdermabrasion method can be used to whiten or lighten the gums. Microdermabrasion is a more traditional procedure that usually takes less than an hour. After the whitening gel begins to lessen the gingival colour, the dentist buffs the gum tissues and removes any remaining melanin-containing cells with a tool similar to a polishing cup.

Crown lengthening is another alternative to laser gum whitening. The location of the gum in a healthy mouth free of periodontal disease is usually determined by the level of the bone beneath it. Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure traditionally used to expose more of the teeth while also lowering the gum level.
