Gingival Color Matching

There are instances when the color of our gums varies from one tooth to the next and thus becomes noticeable when we smile. Once the dentist or periodontist have ruled out disease as a cause of this discoloratiion, procedures can be done to make the area match the surrounding tissue. When the discoloration is caused by an old filling (amalgam tattoo), a Gingival Graft may be needed.
