Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Your smile is the first thing someone notices about you. People form their first impressions based on the appearance of your smile.  Today, a wide range of cosmetic procedures is available.  If you have a gummy smile, uneven gum line or elongated teeth, cosmetic periodontal surgery may be for you.  

Cosmetic periodontal surgery sculpts the gum line so that it is even and in proportion to the amount of exposed tooth versus gum. This procedure removes the excess gum and exposes more of the tooth crown. If your gums have receded, and your teeth appear overly long, then soft tissue grafts can extend the gum line to create an aesthetic balance. The grafts also reduce the gum pockets that are prone to future periodontal disease.

If you are unhappy with your smile, give us a call to discuss your options. After all, you only have one chance to make a first impression.
