Aesthetic Melanin Removal

Excessive melanin can cause black spots and patches on the gum, which results in an unattractive smile.

Gum depigmentation is a procedure used to eliminate those anesthetic gum coloration and black spots.


This procedure can involve:

- a surgery
- or the use of a laser ablation technique


At Vivid Dental Care we adopted the laser melanin removal technique as it provides better results yet with minimal postoperative discomfort.
A laser beam can target the melanocytes and ablate them, thus reducing the production of melanin in the gingival tissue.


Following laser depigmentation, the gum heals gently resulting in a better smile!
