Get a Beautiful Grin With Our Cosmetic Gum Treatment

While the health of your teeth is certainly a top priority, the appearance and condition of your gums play a crucial role in the overall look and function of your smile. Cosmetic gum procedures can address concerns like uneven gumlines and excessive gum tissue.

At our practice, you’ll find three main types of cosmetic gum surgery to meet your needs:

  • Gum Grafting – This treatment involves taking tissue from another area of your mouth and carefully transplanting it to areas with receding or thin gumlines. A gum graft can improve the appearance of your smile while strengthening your gums and protecting you from tooth loss.
  • Gum Reshaping – For patients with a gummy smile, laser gum contouring gently reshapes the gum tissue to create an even, pleasing balance between your teeth and gums. This procedure can also correct an uneven gumline.
  • Crown Lengthening – Your dentist uses a laser to remove excess gum tissue and let more of the crown (white part) of your tooth show. It can help make short teeth appear longer and more appealing. It will also prepare a tooth for other procedures such as a crown or veneer.
  • Osseous/Gum Surgery – Through osseous surgery, the periodontist treats moderate to severe periodontitis by helping reduce the depth of gum pockets and eliminating bacterial build up to prevent further infection.

To ensure your comfort, our team uses advanced techniques and leading-edge technology like digital X-rays. You’ll feel relaxed with plush pillows, cozy blankets, and a soothing recovery area. Plus, you can take advantage of sedation options if you’d like.
