Patients who are unhappy with their smiles for a variety of reasons come to Riverwalk Dental for a solution. The look of your smile includes the gums, and even when a patient’s teeth are healthy they may feel their gums keep them from a perfect smile. Cosmetic periodontal surgery is a chance for patients to achieve the look they desire.
Cosmetic periodontal surgery is the process of sculpting a patient’s gum line. A procedure can include removing gum tissue, grafting gum tissue, or both. Patients with excess gum tissue may have a gummy smile, and this can be removed with a scalpel tool or laser to expose more of the tooth. Elongated teeth are the result of gums that have receded. In these cases, gum tissue is harvested from a healthy location in the patient’s mouth and grafted onto the area lacking tissue. The end result is an even, stunning smile!
