What is Periodontal Plastic Surgery?

Periodontal plastic surgery involves procedures designed to correct and improve the appearance and function of the gum tissue and supporting structures. These treatments address various cosmetic and functional issues, including gum recession, uneven gum lines, and inadequate gum tissue, helping to create a more attractive and healthier smile.

Our Periodontal Plastic Surgery Procedures

  1. Gum Grafts

    • Gum grafting involves taking tissue from another part of the mouth or using donor tissue to cover exposed roots, reduce sensitivity, and improve the appearance of receding gums.

  2. Crown Lengthening

    • This procedure reshapes the gum and bone tissue to expose more of the tooth structure, making it ideal for patients with a “gummy” smile or those requiring more tooth exposure for restorative procedures.

  3. Ridge Augmentation

    • Ridge augmentation restores the natural contour of the gums and jawline, often needed after tooth loss or bone resorption, to create a more even and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

  4. Gingival Contouring

    • Gingival contouring, or gum reshaping, sculpts the gum line to correct irregularities and create a balanced, symmetrical smile.
