Gingival Depigmentation – The gums are a component of your smile.  And if they’re dark or splotchy, you may feel shy about them.  Even if you have shiny, straight, white teeth, gum discoloration can make you reluctant to smile.

Gingival depigmentation techniques of the past have made some afraid to try them.  Painful and requiring significant recovery time, they weren’t ideal.

But now, there’s Britegums®, a long-lasting gingival depigmentation technique that lets you share your smile with confidence!

What Is Gingival Depigmentation?

As noted above, traditional gingival depigmentation processes were painful.  They were also temporary.  But with Britegums®, that’s not the case, so there’s no need to be nervous.

Your gums are reasonably tough, containing fewer nerves in the outer layer.  Britegums® technology removes the top layer of the gums.  This is where almost all the pigmentation you’d like to change is found.

How Does Gingival Depigmentation Work?

Britegums® uses no bleaches, knives or lasers.  It deploys specially designed, patented brushes and radio waves.

The brushes used in the Britegums® gingival depigmentation treatment remove the top layer of tissue and with it, the melanin which has caused it.  You’ll reveal the pink, healthy gums you’ve always dreamed of with Britegums®!

While many of our patients see permanent results, all results are long lasting.  And Britegums® is FDA approved.

Quick and painless, Britegums® is also refreshingly affordable.

Britegums® treatment takes place in just one visit, with visible results in 7 days.  As time goes by, your gums will continue to improve in appearance as they heal.  The healing process is usually complete in 2 to 3 weeks.

Why Are My Gums Dark?

People with darker skin often have darker gums, due to higher melanin production in the body.  Melanin is the naturally occurring chemical which makes skin dark.  People with pale skin have less of it, meaning their skin takes longer to tan in the sun and may burn more easily.

But the riches of melanin can sometimes cause gums to appear dark and splotchy.

Melanin isn’t always the culprit.  Other causes of dark gums are some medications, cigarette smoking, and small particles of amalgam fillings finding their way under your gums.

The Inventor

Dr. Robert Stanley’s journey as Britegums® inventor started at his practice in Cary, North Carolina.

A patient had talked to him about a solution for her dark, splotchy gums. Intrigued, Dr. Stanley asked other patients about dark pigmentation in the gums and found that it concerned many of them.  He also found that they were not only concerned by it but that they’d been looking for solutions.

Painful treatments that demanded lengthy recovery times were all they’d found, so he went to work on creating Britegums®, now offering patients a painless, long term solution.
