Gum Depigmentation – Dr.Bassem Samir Official Website

We are Specialized In Gum Depigmentation.


Gum Depigmentation is a procedure carried out in patients who have brown to black coloured gums instead of them being pink in colour.

The cause of this could range from excess melanin pigment production to smoking.

Whatever may be the cause, the darkened gums hamper the quality of smile. It is now possible to get bright healthy pink gums with the simple procedure of gingival depigmentation.

Signs of gum disease can be seen in certain regions or across the entire gums which includes:

► Red gums

► Swollen gums

► Painful gums

► Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth, making them appear longer than before

► Loose or shaking teeth

► Pus in the gums

► Bad breath which is persistent

Why you should do Gum Depigmentation?

Like most dental diseases, gum disease is a progressive disease. In the initial stages, the infection is limited to the gums. If left untreated, this gradually spreads to the bones supporting teeth and starts eroding them. Eventually, the teeth lose their vital bone support and start shaking. At this stage, one may experience difficulty in performing simple tasks like chewing due to loose teeth, and also suffer from persistent bad breath.

Therefore, the earlier the treatment is sought, the lesser the damage done.
