Gum Depigmentation

      Laser Gum Treatment in Mumbai

Gum depigmentation is a procedure to lighten/remove black spots/patches on  your gums.

Deposits of melanin can change the normal pink colour of gums to make them look dark, patchy or discoloured. This can be hereditary although medications, as well as smoking and drinking, can also lead to discolouration in some cases. Although dark, patchy or blotchy gums cause no discomfort or pain, it can create an aesthetic issue for many people, making them feel self-conscious of smiling.

Gum depigmentation – otherwise known as gum bleaching or gum whitening – is a procedure that removes patches or black spots on the gum that have appeared due to excessive melanin.


  • Oral disease
  • Melanin pigments-genetics
  • Blood thinners
  • Smoking
  • Side effects from certain medications

The extra pigment doesn’t indicate disease/dysfunction .It is purely a cosmetic procedure to enhance esthetics for pink gums to showcase teeth better.

      What are the benefits?

A perfect smile relies not only on beautiful teeth, but also the appearance of gums. A lot of people don’t realise the importance of pink, healthy gums to the overall attractiveness of a smile.

In a single visit to the dentist, this can be achieved. Patients are often pleasantly surprised by how quick the treatment is. In addition, results of a one-off gum depigmentation procedure can last up to many years!

Healing time is very quick and relatively painless for most of our patients. Only patients with extremely sensitive gums may experience slight discomfort for a very short period of time. You will be able to eat and talk normally without any trouble as soon as the treatment is completed.
