Cosmetic Gum Surgery

We all want to have attractive smiles. Many people consider the teeth are the most important element of a sensational smile. But that attractive smile doesn’t always depend on lovely white and straight teeth. When it comes to a beautiful smile the gum or gingival tissue is just as important as overall dental health. Even the nicest teeth need nice framing. Often an unattractive smile results when the quality of gums is in question or and the actual gum between your teeth becomes weak.

Often, if your dental hygiene is lacking you begin to lose gum tissue. Now, with advances in periodontics, a specialty of cosmetic dentistry, the pretty pink gum tissue can be corrected to appear in aesthetic harmony with the beautiful white teeth. Cosmetic surgery of your gums can also be used to correct a ’gummy smile’ where a lot of your gums are exposed and your teeth appear smaller or in the wrong place. This is why cosmetic gum surgery is something to consider along with other procedures of cosmetic dentistry such as composite resin bonding, crowns, porcelain veneers or dental implants, if you’ve already lost a tooth or more to periodontal disease.

The cosmetic gum surgery is then used to lengthen your teeth from the neck of the tooth upwards. Following this surgery our teeth then appear to be longer and much less gum can be seen when you smile. Another type of cosmetic gum surgery is used to correct teeth that are too long. Sometimes, as we age, our gums may shrink and recede which makes our teeth look too long. Though this is often age-related, it can also occur due to a bad bite or genetics.

If your gums look poorly due to a gum disease your dentist may refer you to a periodontist who may recommend periodontal surgery. Periodontal surgery is necessary when your periodontist determines that the tissue around your teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment. Periodontists today can help you reshape your gum line to expose your ideal smile, in addition to creating the foundation for beautiful crowns, etc. Unsightly exposed roots can be covered up as well. The costs involved in cosmetic gum surgery differ extensively depending on how much of your mouth is undergoing a procedure as well as what kind of corrective gum surgery is used and if there are any other surgeries involved.

Some of these procedures are: Pocket Reduction Procedures, Regenerative Procedures, Crown Lengthening, and Soft Tissue Grafts.
