A variety of techniques exists to remove gum pigmentation, also known as black gums. Some doctors utilize chemical agents or bleaching solutions. Because this method of treatment does not remove the structures causing the overproduction of melanin, a higher likelihood exists that the dark gums will recur than with surgical methods. For this reason, our top periodontists utilize an advanced surgical method of gum depigmentation.
Dr. Belokar possess unique expertise in periodontal corrective treatments. Utilizing only the most cutting-edge equipment available, we perform a state-of-the-art microdermabrasion technique to remove the pigmented area and reveal the healthy, lighter-colored tissue beneath. One of the benefits of this form of treatment is that it affords the periodontist higher accuracy and control in removing pigmentation. Most patients achieve a great outcome of lighter, more attractive gums after surgery.
After undergoing gum depigmentation, patients may experience some pain and sensitivity in the gums. However, most people find that over-the-counter pain medications offer effective relief. The rate of success for this periodontal treatment is very high, and most patients achieve the more attractive, lighter-looking smile they desire. Our goal is to ensure all patients enjoy a gentle and painless dental experience.
