Why Are My Gums Discoloured?

Healthy gums are usually pink; if gums become discoloured it’s time to book an appointment with your dentist.

Key takeaways:

– Smoking causes discoloured patches on the gums as the nicotine results in increased melanin production.

– Medication for certain conditions such as chlamydia or acne can result in pigmentation.

– In rare cases, black gums can be a sign of trench mouth, a buildup of dead tissue over the gums.

– Your dentist can diagnose and treat discoloured gums as well as keep your teeth healthy.

“Treatment for black gums will depend on the underlying cause.”
