Gum health and aesthetics play a crucial role in the overall appearance of a smile. The condition of the gums can significantly impact a smile.

Gum grafting and gum recontouring can address issues related to gum recession and excessive gum tissue.

Gum Grafting

This procedure is particularly beneficial for patients suffering from gum recession, a condition where the gum tissue pulls back or wears away, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth's root. Receding gums can lead to increased sensitivity, a higher risk of tooth decay, and an aesthetically unpleasing smile. It can also lead to teeth appearing longer.

Gum grafting involves taking gum tissue from a donor site, often the roof of the mouth, or using tissue from a tissue bank. This graft is then carefully placed in areas of recession, providing a more natural gum line, reducing sensitivity, and improving the appearance of the teeth and smile. The procedure not only enhances the aesthetics but also contributes to better oral health by protecting the roots of the teeth.

Gum Recontouring

Some individuals have an excess of gum tissue, leading to what's commonly known as a "gummy smile." This condition can make the teeth appear shorter and affect the overall smile aesthetics. Gum recontouring is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape excessive gum tissue.

By carefully excising the extra gum tissue and reshaping the gum line, we create a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing smile. It exposes more of the tooth surface, making the teeth appear more proportionate to the gums and the rest of the mouth. This procedure not only enhances the smile's appearance but can also help improve oral hygiene by exposing more of the tooth surface for easier cleaning.
