Gum Whitening

Gum Whitening

Healthy-looking gums will boost your confidence in a quick, painless procedure.

Gum whitening - what is it?

Deposits of melanin can change the normal pink color of gums to make them look dark, patchy or discolored. This can be hereditary, although medications, smoking, and drinking can also lead to discolouration in some cases. Although dark, patchy, or blotchy gums cause no discomfort or pain, they can create an aesthetic issue for many people, making them self-conscious about smiling. Gum de-pigmentation – 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.

What is the Procedure like?

We will carry out a thorough assessment to ensure the treatment is tailored to each patient’s needs, as the degree of pigment saturation and discoloration varies for each patient; gum discoloration can be patchy, or it can spread across the entire gum tissue.

We can target melanocyte cells that produce melanin through our specialist laser gum depigmentation techniques. Targeting these pigments that cause dark spots will result in a lighter, more uniform colour of the gums.

Our laser gum depigmentation techniques are carried out by our highly skilled and experienced dentist, ensuring that the procedure is safe and thorough. Using cutting-edge laser devices, they painlessly, safely, and effectively eliminate any discolouration so your gums appear a more attractive, healthy shade of pink.

No injections

The treatment itself can take only a few minutes, meaning the patient will be in and out of the chair before they know it.

The laser is kept 1cm away from your gums, so there is no physical contact, and no injections or anesthesia is needed since it is a completely painless procedure.

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

This can be achieved in a single visit to the dentist. Patients are often pleasantly surprised by how quick the treatment is. In addition, the results of a one-off gum de-pigmentation procedure can last up to 20 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. As soon as the treatment is completed, you will be able to eat and talk normally without any trouble.
