Gum Depigmentation Treatment Dubai

Our gums may go from pink to black or brown over a period of time. Melanin concentration is one of several factors that can cause gum discoloration. Other causes include certain medications, smoking, and metal fillings. It may not be a medical condition but it is not appealing for most of us with respect to aesthetic reasons. Gum depigmentation, also known as gum bleaching, is a cosmetic dental procedure that aims to reduce the appearance of dark spots on the gums. It is suitable for both men and women. 

Gum Pigmentation Causes

Pigmentation of gums can occur because of the following reasons;

  • Genetics.
  • Amalgam filling on the gums (localized discoloration in the surrounding gum tissue).
  • Smoking.
  • Certain medications.
  • Gum diseases.

Who are the Candidates?

Usually, people look for gum depigmentation in Dubai because of aesthetic preferences. You can be a good candidate if you;

  • Have discolored gums.
  • Are not suffering from oral disease.
  • Don’t have thin gum tissue (patients with thin gum tissue may require a different approach or may not be suitable candidates for this procedure).
  • Have gums in good health.

How to Prepare for Treatment?

Gum depigmentation is a simple treatment but you will have to follow a few instructions given by your doctor before the treatment to ensure the success of the procedure and your safety. Your oral health will be examined by your doctor in an initial meeting which will help in making an effective treatment plan. Common pre-treatment instructions given to patients are;

  • Avoid smoking at least a week prior to the treatment.
  • Avoid using any blood-thinning medications or as prescribed by your professional.

Depigmentation Procedure

Gum Bleaching in Dubai is a simple cosmetic procedure and the duration of the procedure can vary significantly based on individual cases. The time required for the procedure is dependent on the concentration of melanin and the size of the gums. You may require a local anesthetic injection to avoid any kind of discomfort.

Gum depigmentation treatment is best performed with the help of lasers. Laser gum depigmentation procedure involves the removal or lightening of the pigmented layer and the heat of the laser targets the cells that are responsible for melanin production. The new layer of tissues revealed after the treatment is pink in color.
