Laser Gum Bleaching

Cosmetic Dentistry

An often unknown treatment to pigmented and dark gums is our laser gum bleaching.  It is a simple and comfortable procedure that eliminates darkened gums. The use of our Waterlase laser allows for quick healing and control of pain.  

Waterlase assisted laser gum bleaching is a cosmetic procedure that removes the brown or black patches that often occur naturally on gum tissue. You will heal virtually pain-free and will heal with healthy, pink gums.

Dr. Mahmood can complete your gum depigmentation in one or two visits at Progressive Dental Houston. Gingival hyperpigmentation, a condition of “dark gums” is caused by excessive melanin in the gum tissue. It can affect people of all races and ethnicities, though it’s more common in people with darker skin.

Hyper-pigmentation typically is not a health concern, however, it is an aesthetically driven desire for a more uniform gum line appearance. Smoking, systemic illnesses, and taking certain medications can also contribute to the condition.

WITH LASER GUM BLEACHING, YOU CAN ACHIEVE:

  • Removal of darkened or splotchy gum tissue
  • Light pink gums without a scalpel or stitches
  • Little or no pain during or after the procedure
  • Remarkable healing

Dr. Mahmood can perform this laser gum bleaching procedure in one to two hours in a nearly painless manner. Most patients return to normal life or work directly after the procedure. Schedule your laser gum bleaching consult and potentially have it completed the same day.
