Gingival aesthetics at Dentakay, is focused on ensuring that the gums meet the standards of perfection. Our treatments target the following problems:
1- Gum Recession
Receding gums is a phenomenon where the gums retreat beyond the normal margin revealing more of the tooth structure. This condition affects people for various reasons.
Gingival aesthetics resolve this issue either surgically or non-surgically depending on severity.
2- Gingival Enlargement
Gingival enlargement refers to the phenomenon that results in an increase gum tissue growth. The overgrowth makes the teeth appear much smaller than they are and out of proportions.

Gingival pigmentation refers to permanent and stubborn discoloration around the gums. This affects the smile through darkening or eclipsing the pearly glow of your teeth.

4- Gummy Smile
Gummy smile or a gingival smile is when too much for your gum shows when smiling. It’s a cause of concern for many, but isn’t impossible to treat.

What Makes A Smile Perfect?
The role of gingival aesthetics is monumental in creating a perfect smile. Having a smile where 50% of your gums show is a critical factor in gingival aesthetics. Likewise, your teeth need to form a straight line across the gum for an ideal smile.
Not to mention having normal gums that don’t recede or aren’t enlarged. Pigmentation is a no-no whether on the gums or the teeth.
