Laser Gum Depigmentation in Ajman

Overview

A perfect smile is more than just having healthy, pearly white teeth. Gums frame the teeth; thus, their appearance is an important component of a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing smile. Gums come in a variety of colors, including pink, red, brown, and black, which are primarily determined by the amount of melanin a person produces. The darker an individual’s gums are, the more melanin they produce. However, having dark gums can make some people self-conscious about their smile.

Laser Gum Depigmentation in Ajman is an excellent option for those who want lighter pink gums.

What is Laser Gum Depigmentation?

Laser gum depigmentation is a simple procedure in which our cosmetic dentist uses a dental laser to target and lighten gum pigmentation areas that have excess melanin. It is a simple and quick procedure for gum pigmentation removal, that does not include the use of harsh chemicals or bleaches. The non-pigmented gum areas remain unaffected, and improvement is visible immediately after gum pigmentaion treatment.

Ideal Candidate for Laser Gum Depigmentation

A good candidate for gum pigmentation treatment is someone who is generally healthy and fulfils the following criteria:

  • Has good gums
  • Gums that are dark brown or dark-colored
  • There are no thin gum tissues
  • There is no periodontal disease
  • Is not taking blood thinners

Pre-Requisite for Gum Depigmentation Treatment

Before starting with gum pigmentation removal, you will discuss your concerns and the goals you expect from treatment during a consultation with our expert cosmetic dentists at Bliss Medical Center.

You will also be given pre-procedure instructions such as:

  • To make your medical history available
  • to have your gums examined physically
  • Take the prescribed medication.
  • Stop drinking alcohol and quitting smoking.
  • Certain medications, such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications, should be avoided.
  • Eat or drink nothing for a few hours before the procedure.

How does Laser Gum Depigmentation work?

During the Laser Gum Depigmentation procedure at our dental clinic in Ajman, the laser generates heat, which vaporizes and eliminates the top thin layer of gum tissue while also destroying melanin-producing cells. When new tissue forms during healing, it is pink rather than brown. Treatment may necessitate the use of local anesthesia, and the recovery period is brief and painless. You may need several sessions to achieve the desired level of brightening, depending on the color and depth of the dark spot.

Downtime

This procedure of gum bleaching requires very little to almost no downtime. Aside from the slight discomfort, you will feel a slight burning sensation, which is easily alleviated with pain medication. Swelling in the gums is also possible but resolves within a few days.

A follow-up appointment will be necessary to keep track of your healing progress.

Benefits of Laser Gum Depigmentation

Here are some of the advantages associated with laser gum depigmentation:

Enhanced Aesthetics: Laser gum depigmentation can effectively lighten dark or discolored gum tissue, resulting in a more even and aesthetically pleasing gum line.

Boosted Confidence: Individuals with dark gums often feel self-conscious about their smile. Lightening the gum tissue through laser depigmentation can boost self-esteem and increase confidence when smiling and speaking.

Precise and Controlled: Laser technology targets pigmented areas precisely, minimizing the impact on surrounding healthy gum tissue.

Reduced Discomfort: Laser treatment is typically associated with minimal discomfort during and after the procedure, reducing the need for extensive anesthesia or pain management.

Minimal Bleeding: Laser technology cauterizes blood vessels as it works, resulting in minimal bleeding and a cleaner surgical field.

Faster Healing: The non-invasive nature of the procedure often leads to faster healing times compared to traditional gum surgery.

Shorter Treatment Duration: Laser gum depigmentation is often quicker to perform compared to traditional surgical methods, meaning you spend minimum time in the dental chair.

Minimal Post-Procedure Care: Recovery after laser gum depigmentation is usually straightforward, involving minimal post-procedure care and maintenance.
