Soft Tissue Recontouring
Too much gum tissue results in a “gummy” smile that is both unsightly and can lead to functional issues with the teeth. Soft tissue recontouring removes excess gum tissue improving the natural symmetry of the smile and creating a better tooth-to-gum ratio. This treatment can also give access to a portion of the tooth that may have decay or a fracture.
Gum grafting reverses the aesthetic and functional issues associated with gum recession. Tissue taken from a donor source or another part of the mouth is placed over the exposed tooth roots. After healing, the tissue will be fused together, providing a denser and healthier surface and better support for the tooth or teeth.
