Gingival aesthetics is the specialty that corrects alterations in the color, shape and position of the gums of the teeth. So it is an important issue for the aesthetics of our mouth. In gingival aesthetics, we always talk about the fact that the gum is the frame of the frame that our teeth are. And if the frame is not correct, the frame, the teeth, will not look the same.
Therefore, every patient who is concerned about the aesthetics of their gums can and should resort to gingival aesthetics. And even those who initially do not know they need a specialist in gingival aesthetics. For example, most patients are unaware that dark pigmentation of the gum can be removed .
Also the overgrowth of the gum by medication or by a malformation can be reduced to give a better oral appearance. On the other hand, the lack of gum in the neck of the tooth, exposing the tooth root on many occasions, can be completely corrected or at least improved so that it does not get worse.
Treatments for excess or lack of gums
Of all the treatments that we could consider that covers the gingival aesthetic, it is worth mentioning some common ones such as gingival crown lengthening surgery. In short, gingival crown lengthening surgery is the one used to remove excess gum. Other cases are those that present patients with a lack of gum, then we perform grafts of gingival tissue from the patient to solve it.
