Aesthetic Periodontal Surgery:

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

Your smile is often the first thing people notice when meeting you. If your teeth appear small when smiling, it can look unattractive. This is known as a "gummy" smile. An uneven gum line can also be distracting. In many cases, multiple-tooth crown lengthening can be done to give your teeth a longer and more attractive appearance.

Procedure: We administer a local anesthetic and gently recontour excess gum and bone tissue to create a more of attractive yet natural smile.

Aesthetic Soft Tissue Grafting

Longer teeth or exposed tooth roots can look unsightly. They can also increase your sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets. In some cases, gum tissue can placed in these areas.

Procedure: We administer a local anesthetic, gently preparing the area and then place a gum tissue graft.

Aesthetic Ridge Augmentation

Sometimes after an extraction there will be a sunken spot or concave appearance in your gum line. This looks unsightly and can also jeopardize the appearance of a bridge that goes over the area. Grafting material can be inserted under the gum to fill out this depression.

Ridge augmentation can also be used to build up an area of bone so that a dental implant can be placed.

Procedure: We administer a local anesthetic and gently open the area filling the sunken area with grafting material.
