People have various gum tones. With time, gums can darken due to staining or irritation eliminating their natural color. Moreover, people tend to care about the appearance of their smiles. Therefore, they undergo teeth whitening procedures to enhance the whiteness and beauty of their smiles. However, the color of our gums is just as important as the whiteness of our teeth. Gums show as we smile, and healthy gums should be pink. With time, there are some factors that contribute to their discoloration (or darkening). Thanks to the technology which allows gum bleaching, dentists can restore patients’ natural gum color and remove the dark discoloration. Gum bleaching gives patients healthy gums to complement their white teeth, which boosts their confidence.

Gum Bleaching Process: How is Gum Bleaching Done?
Gum Bleaching with laser (or depigmentation) removes a thin layer of the patient’s gum tissue. Depigmentation eradicates the cells that produce melanin. During the healing process, the body creates new gum tissue which takes after the patient’s natural gum color. The patient may need a local anesthetic for gum bleaching treatment.
Gum bleaching usually takes less than an hour. However, based on the color and darkness of the gums, the treatment might take several sessions to achieve the best lighting result.
The good thing about gum bleaching is that oral tissue heals faster compared to other body parts.
Moreover, it causes only a little discomfort and the result surely is worth going through this discomfort. Levantine Dental Clinic is one of the clinics that offer this treatment using the latest laser technology.
What are the Causes of Dark Gums?
Gum bleaching is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that removes dark spots on the patient’s gums. Gums gain their color from the body’s melanin. Melanin is what gives the colors, hair, and skin their colors. Therefore, when the patient’s body produces a surplus of melanin, it can accumulate in the gums which gives this darker shade.
A surplus of melanin is often popular in some ethnic groups (such as Africans and Middle Easterns). It is important to know that a surplus of melanin in the gums doesn’t indicate diseases or bad hygiene habits. There are other causes for dark gum shades that are irrelevant to the natural melanin. For example, smoking or certain medications can cause gums to get darker. In addition, gum discoloration can happen if patients are not taking care of their oral hygiene and health. Committing to teeth brushing helps maintain the natural color and health of gums, and the smile overall. On the other hand, not committing to teeth brushing might cause infections which consequently darken the teeth and gums.
