What Causes Dark Gums?
When you smile your gums are visible too. Color of gums plays a crucial role in aesthetics of a smile. Normal color of gums is coral pink. In some people, due to excessive deposits of melanin (pigment responsible for dark color) gums get darker color than what is normal. Lifestyle factors like tobacco smoking, increased exposure to sunlight tend to make gums darker. Certain pathological conditions like endocrine disorders, idiopathic diseases (of unknown cause) and certain oral mucosal conditions also cause pigmentation of gingiva. Certain drugs and metals induce pigmentation in gingiva.

Surgical Technique (Conventional without LASER)
This is a surgical stripping or excision of superficial epithelium using a scalpel blade. The denuded area heals by secondary intention where pink gums gradually replace it. This technique is simple and cost effective with less recurrence rate but post-operative pain and discomfort are its setbacks.
Laser Gum Depigmentation
Laser gum depigmentation uses laser energy to peel off the gingival epithelium. This technique is minimally invasive causing less tissue loss and minimizes post op complications like pain, swelling and infection. Lasers cause less bleeding which improves visibility at the surgical site. After clinical depigmentation, chances of relapse after very less with the use of lasers.
