Frequently asked questions
and their answers

Gum pigmentation, also known as dark gums, can be caused by various factors, including genetics, excessive melanin production, certain medications, chronic inflammation, smoking, etc.

Gum lightening procedures, when performed by qualified dental professionals, are generally safe. Common methods include laser treatments or chemical agents to reduce melanin pigmentation.

The duration of a gum lightening procedure can vary based on the chosen method and the extent of pigmentation. In some cases, treatments may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

The recovery time for gum lightening is typically minimal. Patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or sensitivity immediately after the procedure. These symptoms usually resolve within a few days.

The results of gum lightening are not always permanent, and the longevity can vary among individuals. Factors such as genetics, lifestyle choices, and oral hygiene practices can influence the duration of the results.

After gum lightening, it’s important to follow the dentist’s post-operative care instructions. This may include avoiding hot or spicy foods, practicing gentle oral hygiene, and using any prescribed medications or oral rinses.
