Gum bleaching is a cosmetic
procedure to easily remove the brown or black patches that often occur
naturally on gum tissue. The treatment is quick, pain-free, and will leave you
with healthy, pink gums.
In particular, people with darker skin tones often find that
they have a naturally higher amount of melanin in their gum tissue, causing
darker gums. This can even occur from sun exposure. In some people, the gums
may have irregular pigmentation with darker patches in places.
At our clinic , we provide gum bleaching using the Biolase
Waterlase, an advanced handheld laser device that lightens the gums to a pink
hue. Minimally invasive, the treatment can be done in the office, and the
results are permanent.
Biolase Waterlase is a laser technology that uses gentle water spray rather than heat to safely remove the cells that produce melanin, which are within the top layers of the skin of the gums. As the tissue heals, the remaining gums are pink in color. Healing is fast, and pain is minimal.
