Laser De-Pigmentation (Laser Gum Bleaching)
While the normal color of gingival (gum) tissue is pink, excess deposits of melanin can create the appearance of brown or black spots or patches on the gums. Known as melanin hyper-pigmentation, “dark gums” can affect individuals with cultural factors and pigmentation imbalances, and can range from covering small spots on the gums to nearly the entire area. While harmless, many people find these spots aesthetically undesirable.
Fortunately, Dr. Lehrman can now effectively and painlessly remove these problem areas with Periolase technology. Laser treatment is an accurate, quick way to eliminate dark gums in as little as one visit and with very short healing time. This page is in development.
