Pink esthetics is becoming increasingly important
High quality dental restorations are distinguished by a high level of biocompatibility, ease of hygiene and a natural appearance. The main focus of attention is primarily the patient's white esthetics, as this is essential for the positive perception and success of a prosthetic restoration. However, the pink esthetics is coming more and more in focus. Pink esthetics is a crucial aspect in the natural appearance of a prosthetic restoration. The gingival areas to be replaced have to be reproduced perfectly and meet individual requirements. After all, the gingiva is a complex structure with blood vessels, light-dark areas and alveoli. Among other things, aspects such as age and ethnic origin play a role in its appearance. For a long time, meeting all these details was far from easy.
