Gum Whitening (Gum Depigmentation)

Getting that perfect pink gums

The ideal healthy gum colour is always thought to be pink and firm, not brown, red or swollen. To keep your teeth and gums healthy is choosing to eat the right foods, including celery, carrots and apples and adding fruits into your healthy diet, as well as practising good oral hygiene and regular cleaning.


There’s no denying that maintaining a healthy diet is just as important as keeping your gums pink and healthy if you want to enjoy a beautiful smile. However, what your gum colour is, can say a lot about your health. When your gums are in poor condition, it’s an indication that your health may be, too. 


For patients who have darker gums are either genetic or commonly associated with heavy smoking, or showing signs of periodontal disease, or just that they may have a weaker immune system. Poor immune system is the result of bacterial growth.


At Gentle Smile Dental Studio, we offer gum whitening (gum depigmentation), which is a safe and effective method of destroying the cells that produce melanin, and leave behind pink new tissue in place for your gums. The procedure will require local anaesthesia and pain relief medications after treatment to ease any discomfort. 


This treatment is for patients who are worried about their gum colour. Book an appointment with us! Our aesthetics dentist will assess your gum during the consultation and offer you the right treatment to help you achieve a pink and healthy gum again.
