Hi..it can be treated by lasers. Color can be made normal. Change of color can be done in two sittings. For slanting teeth cosmetic treatment by crowns can be done. Regards

Laser depigmentation is a predictable and simple procedure performed as outpatient procedure,usually in a single sitting. Malaligned teeth require orthodontic treatment. Crowning may be considered for 'slanted' teeth after careful treatment planning.

Yes is it possible by depigmentation and its a single sitting procedure. Laser depigmentation will have an added advantage. Slanted teeth to correct by the natural way is clip treatment. But for some reason you are reluctant for such treatment, then ceramic veneers is an alternative.

The colour of gums is due to pigment in the gums. A procedure under anaesthesia involving removal of upper layer of the gums is done to depigment the gums. It will be a painless procedure with a little post operative discomfort for which rinses and painkillers will be prescribed. Please note that this is not permanent and pigments may come back after a certain period. As for slanting teeth ...if its very minor with very slight overlapping then veneers can be done. But for other cases orthodontic treatment or braces is the best option.

Hey there, you can consult a cosmetic dentist or a periodontist for depigmentation of your gums... Slanted teeth will require orthodontic assistance ...but other than that...without seeing clinically no treatment can be suggested as such... Take care...!!

The black color of gums is more commonly due to genetic reasons. Other causes are nicotine esp in males. There r certain treatments for black gums but generally it reappears after sometime. Regarding your slanted teeth, I must say it's an orthodontic problem. So braces treatment wud be the best option.
