Gum depigmentation at Sweet Water Dental Studio is a minimally invasive procedure designed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your gums. Using advanced laser technology, we can effectively remove the dark pigmentation caused by excess melanin, resulting in a more uniform and pleasing gum color. This treatment is particularly popular among patients seeking to improve the overall look of their smile without undergoing more invasive procedures.

The laser technique used in gum depigmentation offers several advantages over traditional methods. Unlike surgical stripping, which can be painful and require significant recovery time, our laser approach is minimally invasive and provides faster recovery. The laser precisely targets the melanocytes responsible for pigmentation, ensuring high visibility during the procedure and reducing the risk of recurrence. This precision allows for a more comfortable experience and same-day treatment in most cases.

Our commitment to using the latest technology ensures that you receive the best possible care. By choosing gum depigmentation at Sweet Water Dental Studio, patients can enjoy a more attractive and confident smile with minimal discomfort and downtime. Whether you are looking to enhance your smile for aesthetic reasons or address pigmentation issues, our skilled team is here to provide you with exceptional care and a positive dental experience.

At Sweetwater Dental Studio, our dentist Dr. Vlada Matytsin helps patients correct the appearance of gingival hyperpigmentation with advanced laser dentistry techniques. We use the Waterlase laser to minimize the appearance of dark spots on the gums without the need for invasive periodontal surgery. The use of Waterlase laser allows for quick healing; the patients can smile confidently with healthy, pink gums after the treatment without worrying that their gums appear unusual.

Laser gum depigmentation offers many aesthetic and treatment benefits to patients.  With the Waterlase laser treatment, you can achieve:

  • Removal of dark spots and pigmentation on gum tissue with little or no pain
  • Light pink gums without stitches
  • Quick completion and healing
  • No bleeding during or after treatment
  • Less risk of infection.
  • The final result – a beautiful, healthy-looking gum tissue that is uniform in color.

The procedure

During the treatment, Dr. Vlada Matytsin administers the appropriate local anesthetic to lessen potential discomfort while applying the laser to the gums. When the tissue is numb, Dr. Vlada treats the gumline’s darkened areas for a lighter appearance. The length of the treatment will depend on how much hyperpigmented tissue needs to be treated.

​Dr. Vlada Matytsin can perform laser gum bleaching procedures in one to two visits, and most patients can return to everyday life directly after the procedure. The standard price for laser gum depigmentation range from $2500.00 – $4000.00 per arch but is not covered under insurance. At Sweetwater Dental Studio, we offer a package deal of $1550.00 per arch.
