Gingival Esthetics

Gingival aesthetics is an important field of dentistry that focuses on enhancing the appearance of the gum by treating problems to beautify your smile.

The goal of gingival aesthetics is to address issues such as uneven gum levels, excessive gum display (Gummy Smile), or receding gums that can impact the overall symmetry and attractiveness of the smile. Various techniques and treatments are employed to achieve optimal gingival aesthetics, depending on your specific expectations.

At Tower Dental, we incorporate Smile Design with our gingival aesthetics treatment, which allows us to use state-of-the-art CAD/CAM software to navigate the smallest details in your smile. This technology allows us to show you the final result with extreme accuracy before starting treatment.

Procedures Performed within the Scope of Gingival Aesthetic Treatments

Our specialized gingival aesthetics treatment is designed to ensure that your gums meet the standards of perfection. The gums have an equally influential role in creating a perfect smile as teeth, and the secret to a glamorous smile is a balance between the two. Our gingival aesthetics treatments target the following problems:

  • Gum Recession

Gum recession is a common phenomenon where the gums retreat beyond the normal margin, revealing more of the tooth structure. This condition can be caused by various reasons, and we can resolve this issue either surgically or non-surgically depending on the severity.

  • Gingival Enlargement

Gingival enlargement refers to the overgrowth of gum tissue, which can make the teeth appear much smaller than they are and out of proportion. We treat gingival enlargements through a range of treatments from laser to surgery.

  • Gingival Pigmentation

Gingival pigmentation is a stubborn discoloration around the gums that can darken or eclipse the pearly glow of your teeth. At Tower Dental, we use laser therapy to “evaporate” the melanin causing coloration around and on the gums.

  • Gummy Smile

A gummy smile, or a gingival smile, is when too much of your gum shows when you smile. This is a cause of concern for many, but it’s not impossible to treat. We offer various treatments to correct a gingival smile, including orthodontics, veneers, laser gum contouring, and surgery.

What To Do For Healthy Gums?

Maintaining healthy gums is crucial for overall oral well-being, providing a strong foundation for your teeth. Adopting good oral hygiene practices and making lifestyle choices that promote gum health is key. Ensure to brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, incorporating gentle circular motions to clean both teeth and gums. Daily flossing should be part of your routine to remove plaque and debris from areas between teeth and along the gumline that a toothbrush might miss.

Use an antimicrobial or fluoride mouthwash as directed by your dentist to control bacteria, strengthen enamel, and maintain fresh breath. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings are essential, allowing dentists to identify early signs of gum disease or other oral health issues. Maintain a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, limiting sugary snacks and beverages to prevent plaque formation. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day helps rinse away food particles and stimulates saliva production, contributing to overall oral health.
