Are you self-conscious about your gummy smile? One of the most commonly-performed periodontal procedures is a gingevectomy which involves a soft tissue graft to reshape the gum line. Excessive gum recession can make the teeth appear very long and also cause extreme tooth sensitivity to hot and cold elements.
Our periodontists can remove and replace gum tissue to create a more attractive smile and perform a soft tissue graft procedure to prevent additional gum recession and bone loss. This procedure also covers exposed roots and encourages the growth of healthy gum tissue where gum recession has occurred. We can perform this procedure on one or multiple teeth, and the result is a more even gum line and reduced tooth sensitivity.
