Having nice straight white teeth can really transform a smile but in today’s world with great attention to detail the way your gums look can be just as important. For many people their gums are usually visible when they smile and so having dark spots can make gums look unhealthy. This can range from a few small spots on the gums to larger patches and their are several reasons this may occur.
In most cases the dark areas on the gums are caused by a build up of melanin which is the same thing which causes dark spots on the skins and also the reason for different skin colours. Smoking is also a big cause of gum pigmentation.
How can laser treatment help?
By using a dental laser we can target specific area of your gums and focus on removing the melanin. This can be done quickly and usually in only a single visit. With the use of laser technology we can return your gums to a more natural shade of pink and because the laser is very focused this can be done without pain or risk to the health of your gums.
If you would like more information then please contact us at either our Glasgow Dental Practice or at the Cambuslang Dental Practice. We have equipped both sites with a dental laser and so are able to provide this treatment at both clinic.
