Pink Aesthetics

Pink Aesthetics

Pink aesthetics refers to the aesthetic operations performed on the gums. Although aesthetics and cosmetics are terms that are used interchangeably, they have different definitions. Aesthetic is defined as “the pursuit of beauty” “the perception of the sense of beauty”. Pink aesthetics in dentistry not only improves the appearance of teeth and the smile but also provides benefits in terms of physiology and function. A full examination includes alignment of the teeth and gums, and analysis of shape, ratio / proportion and colour. Mesiodistal and occlusogingival sizes of the teeth, visibility of the gum, the smile line, vertical size, position of the teeth and the surface properties, selection of the restoration colour compatible with the skin colour of the patient are the issues considered in aesthetic planning.

The soft tissues surrounding the prosthetic restorations are as important as the appearance, shape and colour of the prosthetic teeth. The colour of the teeth, gums, lips, skin, hair and eyes must be in harmony with one another to provide an aesthetic facial appearance.

While the teeth can be lost without loss of the surrounding tissues, we also encounter erosion in bone and soft tissues. When planning the implant, it is essential to analyse every aspect before starting the treatment. The number and location of the implants should be determined by prosthesis planning. Planning from a prosthetic point of view is crucial for long-term success of implants and satisfaction of the patient.

Particularly in edentulous jaws, a fixed restoration plan for each case in implant-supported dental prosthesis planning may be insufficient to provide the appearance of the lost soft tissue and lip support. Patients are faced with aesthetic problems caused by long porcelain teeth and insufficiency of lip profile support. In such cases, prosthetic planning and occlusal vertical dimension planning between the jaws, assessment of lip support, and lost tissue analysis should be carried out in detail before the treatment. As an alternative to fixed restorations, implant-supported hybrid dental prosthesis and removable dental prosthesis options should be considered and discussed in detail with the patient.

We use various materials in prosthetic restorations to simulate and replace soft tissue loss. The important things to consider here are the material of the main restoration, the level of bone and soft tissue loss, and the patient’s deficiency of lip support. While gingival-coloured composite and porcelain materials can be used, polymethylmethacrylate can also be preferred as a prosthetic material for loss of the surrounding tissue.
