Making Your Smile Shine
Esthetic Crown Lengthening (or Improving a Gummy Smile)
Some individuals have teeth that look very short. However, often times the teeth are normal size but covered with excess gum tissue. An esthetic crown lengthening procedure can improve your smile by removing and reshaping excess gum tissue to expose more of your natural tooth.
Gum Recession Treatment
Recession of the gum line is a frequent finding among adults. It happens as a result of a variety of causes including periodontal disease, genetics and trauma from overaggressive tooth brushing. Gum replacement grafts can be performed to cover the exposed roots reducing the gum recession, improving your smile as well as protecting the roots from decay.
