Laser Gum Bleaching is very effective when the dark patches on the gum are caused by melanin making cells. This is the most common cause of dark gums. Other possibilities for gum staining (or darkening) can be amalgam tattooing, diseased gums, or when the root of a tooth becomes discoloured. Not all types of darkness of the gums are suitable for Laser Gum Bleaching.
Laser Gum Bleaching may not be effective in the following cases:
1– Gum Bleaching is not suitable in cases when the darkness of the gums is the result of gum disease.
2– Gum Bleaching is not suitable for people who have thin gums with the root of the teeth very close to the surface. In these cases treatment can cause sensitivity.
3– Gum Bleaching is not suitable in cases when the dark colour of the gums is the result of dark roots or implants showing through the gum.
4– Laser gum bleaching is not suitable for people taking medication to thin their blood.
