Pink Aesthetics

Pink aesthetics involve the correction of asymmetries and gum deformities, preventing gummy smile, removal of discoloured areas around the gum to achieve healthy and aesthetically pleasing looking gum.

What is Pink Aesthetics?

Periodontology is a branch of dentistry that examines the structure of soft (periodontal ligaments, gums) and hard tissues (bone, cement) surrounding the teeth while treating diseases that concern such tissues. Gums form the infrastructure of the mouth and the teeth. Healthy gum is characterised by rose pink colour and surrounds the teeth tightly. If you have unhealthy gums, even without any presence of decay, you may be at risk of losing your teeth. Early treatment for gum disease involves removal of plaques and toothstones as well as constructing a healthy root surface for the teeth. This process allows the removal of bacteria and irritants that cause inflammation in the gum. Gums that are not treated early and untreated advanced cases may require surgical intervention.

Food residues form lime layers around the teeth and gum, when combined with the saliva. The lime layers are soft in the beginning; however, they quickly turn into hard and stiff layers. These cannot be removed by brushing teeth. Only your dentist can remove these layers with ultrasonic devices that are designed for the specifc purposes of toothstone cleaning.

This question is a frequently asked to the dentists. Furthermore, questions like ‘are the teeth enamel scratched during cleaning?’ or ‘would I need frequent cleaning once I start the procedure?’ would be expected in the follow-up. No – this cleaning process would not damage the teeth. In fact, it is one of the most useful, fastest, most comfortable and cheapest procedures you can have. Besides, you can avoid many other oral and dental problems by regular cleaning procedures.

Healthy gum does not bleed. If you experience any bleeding during eating hard foods, brushing your teeth, or observe spontaneous bleeding; you need to consult your dentist. These may be indicators of inflammation in your gums. Additionally, bad breath is an early indicator of inflammation.
