These striated (reticulated or lace-like) white lines look like a lichenoid reaction or oral lichen planus . Both conditions are auto-immune meaning that your immune system attacks the cells that form the lining of the mouth (the mucosa) causing inflammation and these whit...

NO treatment is necessary for a true confirmed diagnosis of Epstein pearls/gingival cysts . These are harmless overgrowths of the cells that are involved in tooth formation. These usually disappear without any treatment within 6 months. Your baby should be assessed to see if ...

Hello YN N, There are a few ways to help reduce a gummy smile. The choice of method will depend on the proportion of your face, such as the length of your lips, bone and teeth position. You could use Botox, it is temporary but it will give you an idea of how you will look wi...

Dear Sng, Surface tea and coffee stains are easily removed by simple scaling and polishing. In our clinic, we also use mild water-borne abrasion as it is very effective and can clean difficult to reach areas with no damage to the tooth enamel. Intrinsic or deeper yellow discolou...
