Genetics is the most common cause of darker colors in the gums. Excess melanin in the gums can cause them to appear brown or black instead of pink. Certain ethnic groups, such as those with African or Middle Eastern origin, are particularly prone to this. The excess pigment isn’t a sign of illness or dysfunction. Patients seek therapy because they want pink gums because they look better with their teeth.Book an Appointment
Other reasons of black gums include smoking, drug side effects, and the effect of amalgam fillings on the gums.
Dr. Jamal’s Dental Care is one of the few clinics in the area that provides laser gum whitening (Depigmentation)
Laser Gum Depigmentation destroys the cells that create melanin by vaporizing and removing a thin top layer of gum tissue. When new tissue is formed during the healing process, it is more likely to be pink than brown. The procedure may necessitate a local anesthetic injection, but it has a quick recovery time and minimal discomfort. It may take multiple sessions to accomplish the required degree of lightening, depending on the color, and depth of the dark region. Dr. Jamal’s Dental Care is one of just a few clinics in Karachi that provides this treatment using cutting-edge laser technology as it is the best dental clinic of Karachi.Book an Appointment
