Gingival depigmentations have been approached in a variety of ways. Here they are:
Scalpel Surgical technique
The pigmented gingival epithelium, as well as a layer of the underlying connective tissue, is surgically removed with this approach
The use of high-frequency electrical energy in the radio transmission frequency band, which is
administered directly to tissue, is known as electrosurgery.
LASER – lasers have revolutionized the field of gum depigmentation, offering a precise, minimally invasive, and highly effective approach to enhancing smiles. With their ability to selectively target and remove excess pigmentation, lasers provide patients with a more comfortable and efficient treatment experience. laser gum depigmentation is a relatively quick and minimally invasive procedure. Patients experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, and the recovery time is significantly reduced compared to traditional methods. The non-surgical nature of the procedure also eliminates the need for sutures or stitches.
