Are your dark gums a show spoiler?

Ah, that dreaded ‘Smile please’! Does posing for the camera seem like frightening endeavor?  You shy away from showing a full smile or you tend to smile with your lips closed. When taking selfies do you refrain from flashing a toothy grin because of the way your gums look? Do you feel uncomfortable about the color of your gums? Just relax. Your concern is genuine but you have to understand the fact that the color of your gums is determined in the same way as that of your skin.

Are dark colored gums due to melanin buildup something to worry about?  Absolutely not! If you have naturally brown or darker gums based on your skin pigment, then there’s nothing to worry about. Just like how two fingerprints are not the same, color variations in gums are absolutely normal. 

Higher concentrations of melanin or imbalances in pigmentation can make your gums look dark, brown or splotchy instead of pink. Since excessive sun exposure causes melanin in the skin to darken, it can even cause melanin in the gums to get darker. Dark skinned people often have dark colored gums. Due to the fact that the production of melanin increases significantly in the presence of sunlight, individuals who are involved in outdoor activity tend to have darker gums. Melanin concentration is usually influenced by factors like genetics, certain medications, stress, smoking, improper oral hygiene and much more.
 
Do you have a beautiful smile but are your dark gums spoiling the show? Even a slight change in the color of your gums can bring down your confidence level. If you are wondering if you could get those coral pink gums, gum lightening procedures could definitely help you.
