Gum Bleaching or Gum Depigmentation in Toronto
We now also offer Gum Bleaching in our Toronto location. Our Harvard trained Periodontist in Toronto, Dr. Philip (Phil) Walton, has been performing a procedure known as “gum depigmentation” for many years. We like to refer to the procedure as “lightening” or “bleaching”. Look at these before and after photographs illustrating the aesthetic changes produced by this procedure.

What is it?
Some people have much darker tissue than other people. The clinical term for this is “hyperpigmentation”. Our “bleaching” or “lightening” procedure will turn the darker tissue pink. This procedure usually takes less than one hour. Although we call it “bleaching” or “lightening”, this is actually a minor surgical procedure that we perform by buffing off a layer of the darker tissue which is known as melanin.
How much does it cost?
The price for this procedure starts at $750 but will vary depending on the size of the tissue area that needs to be treated. We offer a free, no obligation, consultation at which time we will be able to confirm the treatment plan.
Is everyone a candidate for this procedure?
People with healthy gums that have good oral hygiene are candidates for this procedure.
Does it hurt?
Patients report minor discomfort for the first few days but are usually able to return to work on the day of the procedure.
