What is Pink Aesthetics (Gum Aesthetics)?

Pink aesthetics has a very important place in a healthy and beautiful smile. Pink aesthetic is a term that encompasses many treatments. It basically aims to optimize the color, shape and structure of the gums.

The first stage of pink aesthetics is restoring the gums to health. Healthy gums are pink in color, rough and firm in consistency. If swollen and bleeding gums are present, it is not possible to talk about aesthetic procedures. First of all, gum disease should be treated. Within the scope of this treatment, tartar cleaning, deep cleaning (curettage-root surface straightening) or sutured procedures (flap surgeries) can be performed. The procedure to be performed is determined by a detailed clinical and radiographic examination.

After the gums become healthy, gum aesthetics can be applied.

  • My gums look a lot when I smile

  • My teeth look small and square

  • The levels of my gums are not the same

  • My gums receded, my teeth look long, I’m sensitive to hot and cold

  • My gums are black-purple

If you have complaints such as pink esthetics, you may need it.

If your gums are very visible when you smile, their levels are not the same, and your teeth are small and square, pink aesthetics can be achieved with ‘aesthetic crown lengthening’. In this process, first of all, gingival leveling is done in accordance with the aesthetics of your face. However, the gingival shaping process alone does not provide a permanent solution, the gingiva can return to its former state. U This procedure is painless as it is performed under local anaesthesia.

If your gums have receded and your tooth roots are exposed, your extracted tooth may appear longer than the others, causing asymmetry. You may also feel hot and cold sensitivity in the involved tooth. This problem can be solved by making a gingival patch (connective tissue graft, free gingival graft). In this process, a piece is taken from the palate area where there is quality gingival tissue and transferred to the missing area. The palate area heals quickly and returns to its original state. The gingival tissue, which is transplanted to the area of ​​the recession, fuses with the surrounding tissues and provides an integrity. At the end of the procedure, gingival symmetry is achieved and the sensitivity problem is eliminated.

The reason why the gums appear black-purple is the accumulation of a dark-colored biological pigment called melanin in the gingival tissues. It is not harmful to health. However, it can create aesthetic concerns. In the treatment of this condition, the gum tissue on the surface is removed and the healthy, pink tissue just below is revealed.

Which treatment is suitable for you can be determined by a detailed examination by a Periodontology Specialist.
