Red Velvet - Joy Teeth/Gum

Recommended Posts

This might be a weird question, but bear with me LOL. I'm currently experiencing some really bad gum recession after having braces and have been looking into gum grafts as recommended by my dentist/periodontist (ouch!) - BUT I've heard they don't look aesthetically pleasing after the surgery (long-term) nor do they have a high chance of "staying" on :/

 

In relation to that, I came across some pictures of Red Velvet's Joy who I think has veneers on now. But here's a picture of her before:

And here's a picture of her now:

As you can tell, one of her front top teeth had gum recession where the gums were pulled back on one of her teeth (while the others were okay). However, she was able to pull off a very natural look where her gums are now even on that one tooth, matching the rest of her teeth.

 

My question is how did she do this? And my second question is how can I do this because I'd love to look into it! (please I'm desperate, I'd be forever grateful)

hey,

 

i work in the dental field. I dont believe she got veneers at they look relatively the same to me. If anything she could've gotten some of her gum cut out on her left lateral incisor so it matches the recession on the adjacent teeth. If you have healthy teeth and the shape is fine, I wouldnt recommend getting veneers. You are destroying your natural tooth structure, which could possibly lead to more problems. (ie harder to maintain, may need to get replacements every 5-10 yrs, etc)

 

As for gum grafts, it is expensive and like all other grafts, it is not always 100% successful (won't stay on). But its really important for you to maintain them! So if you do get them, make sure to take care of your gums really well otherwise there'd be no point.

Having receding gums oftentimes signals you of a possible gum disease. This happens when the gums start creating a gap between your teeth, allowing more bacteria to enter and damage the tissues. This is caused by genetics, hormonal imbalances, or very poor dental hygiene. Natural remedies are an option such as green tea, aloe vera, yarrow, sesame seed, sumac, sage, coconut oil, lemon oil, clove oil, and vitamin C.
