Various gum treatments to give you a broader, more symmetrical smile:
Esthetic crown lengthening offers you a “gum lift,” where excess gum and bone tissue is removed to expose more of the tooth’s crown and create a natural, pleasing look.
Gum graft surgery covers exposed roots to reduce gum recession and prevent roots from decaying and damaging the supporting bone. The surgery alleviates tooth sensitivity and loss, and cosmetic issues when gum recession makes teeth look longer.
When teeth are lost, the jawbone deteriorates and indentations appear where the tooth once sat, making replacement teeth look unnatural. Ridge augmentation recreates the gums and jaw’s natural contour to resolve the issue, and new teeth additions look healthy.
