Gum infections can result in very unsightly exposures and Periodontal surgeries provide a time-tested method to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. All Care Dental experts have been performing periodontal surgeries for a long time and if your dental appearance is impacting your confidence and lifestyle, then you are in the right place. Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. In some case teeth may be of right length, but can be covered with excessive gum tissue. This condition can be correct by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure – also called crown lengthening.
This procedure entails the reshaping of excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth, to even your gum line, and to create a dazzling smile.
Another popular periodontal cosmetic procedure is the soft tissue graft – The objective of this procedure is to cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession, and protect the roots from decay and eventual loss.
Periodontal Plastic Surgery
‘Gummy smiles’ or non-uniform exposure of teeth while you speak or smile can result in a very unsightly appearance. A correction to this might require a reshaping and adjustment of your gum-line. Cosmetic tooth or gum contouring/reshaping is a simple way to reshape uneven teeth edges or gum tissue. Gum reshaping can correct misaligned teeth, uneven lengths, ridges or grooves. Gum contouring on the other hand can fix your smile-line, the relationship of your teeth with your gum tissue and facial features.
If your teeth are too long, different lengths, slightly misshapen, gum reshaping is a conservative approach to correct them. Gummy smiles can make your teeth appear too small or disproportional causing your smile to be less attractive. An uneven gum line or smile can be unsightly and can lower self-esteem, especially in the workplace.
Uniform and shapely spread of gums over your teeth is key to a beautiful smile – and also vital to your confidence and personality.
Periodontal surgery is also required in the case of gingival overgrowth – A condition in which the gums become swollen and “grow over” the teeth. Periodontal infection tooth decay, and oral infections are expedited by the gingival overgrowth (Overgrown gums) – as it creates a perfect environment for bacterial accumulation and propagation.
