The color of the gums differs from person to person. Black gums can be caused by excess melanin production, smoking, Minocycline (a drug used to treat acne and chlamydia), amalgam tattoo (black patch in the gums next to an amalgam filling), acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis, Addison’s disease, oral cancer, etc. The treatment depends on the cause. If your gums have always been black, then it is normal. If it is due to some underlying condition, getting the condition treated might help improve gums color. If the gums color has changed due to gum infection, then dental scaling and antibiotics will help. If your gums are black due to smoking, then quit smoking. A cosmetic dentist can lighten dark gums with laser depigmentation method. It should always be performed by a registered dental professional.
