Reshaping your gums to rejuvenate your smile!
Your gums are the frame for your teeth and can enhance or detract from your appearance. When considering any procedure in cosmetic dentistry, it’s important to evaluate the surrounding gum tissue.
Do you show too much gum when you smile? Or do you think your teeth seem very short?
Most people think that gum surgery is needed only when advanced disease is present. However, even in otherwise healthy mouths, surgery can be an adjunct to enhancing cosmetic restorations. Excess gum tissue can be surgically removed so that pleasing tooth contours can be created.
The same is true when teeth are uneven in length. If gum tissue has receded from a tooth, the root surface is exposed. The tissue can be replaced by a grafting procedure that serves to protect the exposed tooth structure, as well as enhancing the beauty of your new restoration.
