De-pigmentation of Gums
The most common cause of darker pigments in the gums is genetics. Excess melanin can build up in the gums, making them look brown or black instead of pink. While the extra pigment does not indicate any disease, it can look aesthetically unpleasant and make your smile seem less brilliant. We perform Gum Depigmentation to lighten or remove the black spots or patches on the gums caused by melanin.
