Depigmentation is nothing but the procedure of the removing the pigmentation that has taken place in the gums or the gingiva. In this method, the main aim is to eliminate the pigmentation so that a very good smile can be gifted to the affected individuals.
Don’t let dark, splotchy gums ruin your Smile
Laser gum depigmentation is incredibly effective. Our Dentists will use a gentle laser that reacts with the water present in your gums to even out the colour. Although it might seem painful to let a dentist zap your gum with a laser, it’s a largely painless procedure.
It can also be comforting to know that it has a simple and fast recovery. The procedure can usually be completed in a single visit.

Frequently asked questions
Laser Gum Depigmentation is a procedure that serves to painlessly and effectively treat the dark spots/areas of the gums with a laser. This procedure lightens the gums for astounding and pronounced results, while requiring very little recovery time.
No, dark gums do not necessarily signify poor health. Properly known as gingival hyper-pigmentation, dark gums are simply the result of excess melanin in the gum tissue’s surface layer. Dark gums are more common for people with naturally darker skin color, though people with lighter skin tones could also have dark patches/areas on the gums.
Essentially, the laser light is absorbed by the melanin (dark pigment) in the skin, heating the cells until they are damaged. The damaged cells get removed naturally by the body, leaving the patient with the color that lies beneath the dark pigment. They are left with fresh, pink, healthy looking gums and a brighter smile!
Yes, you can! At Invivo Aesthetics we are able to treat any spot and/or area that needs to be lightened. The patient does not need to get any area worked on that he/she does not find necessary.
