What are the treatment options for dark gums?

Ans. Dark gums are not necessarily a sign of any oral health issue. Colour of the gums varies in different people. Dark patches on gum may also due to various factors like medications or tobacco use.

  If you are bothered by the colour of your gums there are many options are available for treatment of dark gums. These are cosmetic dental treatments done by top cosmetic dentists in Mumbai. The treatment depends on the prevailing gums, mouth condition and the cause of the dark patches. Most common treatment methods include:

  • Surgical options are available like removing the darken gum tissue with a scalpel. The initial result of the treatment is quite well. But it is does last for long.
  • Another treatment option is Cryosurgery; it involves freezing of affected gum tissue. The rate of recurrence of dark patches in the gum is very low after this treatment.
  • Gingival grafting is another option, in this treatment; tissue from the roof of the mouth is taken and grafted on the pigmented gums. So that it conceals the dark gums. This treatment does not treat the dark gums but hides them.
  • Top cosmetic dentists in Mumbai also use advanced laser treatments as a non-surgical option for treating gum treatments. Lasers help remove the excess melanin from the gums and restore the even pink colour.
