What are Pigment Cells?
Pigment cells are the cells in your body that produce color. In your skin, these cells are called melanocytes. In your gums, these cells are called chromatophores. When these cells become damage or die, they can no longer produce color. This is what causes your skin to lose its color and your gums to turn dark.
What Makes Up the Gum Tissue?
Gum tissue is made up of many different things including cells, blood vessels, and nerves. The gums also have a lot of pigment-producing cells which give them their color. The GUMS procedure gently removes the top layer of cells, including the pigment-producing cells, to give you pinker gums.
