Think Pink in smile esthetics

The visibility of the pink (the gum) during the natural and forced smile, periodontal health, gum contour, gum aesthetic line, the presence of papillae will allow to establish a gum aesthetic score, to determine the origins of the disharmony and the envisaged treatments. We will see through many clinical cases how, and at what point in the overall treatment plan, additive or subtractive periodontal plastic surgery can modify the gingival appearance and morphology in order to restore a harmonious smile. Our pink aesthetic goal and the patient's expectations should be achieved with "tailor-made" treatment plans that may consist of a purely periodontal approach or combine other odontological disciplines.
