Though a lot of people initially assume that dental professionals solely work to repair teeth and diagnose problems with teeth, our work extends much further than this. At Weybridge Dental Practice, our dental professionals also offer a wide range of periodontal plastic surgery treatments and this includes gum grafting. If you are unhappy with the way that your gums look or you’re worried that they are too noticeable, periodontal plastic surgery could help.
Periodontal plastic surgery can fix a range of problems related to the gum, including hiding a gummy smile or improving an uneven gum line. In fact, it can even reduce the appearance of long teeth and hide exposed roots. There’s no need to live your life being unhappy with your smile, especially when there are excellent treatments available. Gingival plastic surgery is a fantastic option and it’s usually very straightforward.
Do You Have a Gummy Smile?
All mouths are different, it’s one of the things that makes everyone individual. However, that’s not to say that everyone is happy with the way that their mouth looks. A lot of people have a gummy smile or an uneven gum line, which can cause problems with confidence. Though having a gummy smile or an uneven gum line is unlikely to cause any dental problems, you may want to have periodontal plastic surgery to improve the appearance of gums.
Dental crown lengthening is the process of removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth, reducing the amount of gum that’s visible and increasing the amount of tooth that’s visible. This is ideal if you feel as though your teeth look too short or that your gums cover too much of your teeth. After the gum has been reduced, it is sculpted into the perfect shape for your mouth.
Long Teeth and Exposed Roots
Some people suffer from gum recession and this can result in the root of the tooth becoming exposed, making teeth look long. Long teeth can cause you to look older than you are, even though recession can happen for a number of reasons. Luckily, periodontal plastic surgery can help. Using a gum craft, the tooth root can be covered and gum recession is hidden. Not only does this improve the appearance of the gum, but it also protects the roots from sensitivity or decay.
