Dr. Jonathan Tiger Now Offers Laser Depigmentation Services in Pomona, NY

Dr. Jonathan Tiger now offers patients with dark gum spots an effective solution with laser gum depigmentation in Pomona, NY. Dr. Tiger now utilizes a safe and effective dental laser to treat dark gum spots that are known as excess melanin. While a natural condition for some people, and generally not a cause for concern, the dark areas of gum tissue can be unsightly and distracting to people who notice them in the mirror. Bleaches and lightening agents have been used on gums, similar to those used on teeth, but they can contain harsh chemicals.

With the laser gum depigmentation now available in Pomona, NY, Dr. Tiger treats the dark gum spots with a simple office procedure, using a dental laser to target the areas of excess melanin for lightening. Melanin buildup can result from various causes, including:

  • Genetic factors
  • Smoking
  • Side effect of some medications
  • Silver fillings or crowns that can let tiny flakes of silver accumulate in the gums

Whatever the reason, most cases of darker areas on the gums are not a health risk. Patients can consult with Dr. Tiger about their particular case to create a treatment plan that will improve appearance for the most confident smile possible.

The laser treatment process is quick and easy. Because there are no harsh chemicals or bleaches, the areas of the gums that are not darkened remain untouched. With laser light, the doctor gently lightens the dark spots. Patients see immediate improvement in the mirror at the end of the treatment.
