Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Cosmetic periodontal surgery restores the functional and structural integrity of your teeth and gums. Cosmetic periodontal surgery creates a more natural appearance, enhances the beauty of your smile, improves your self-confidence, and gives you better overall dental health.

Different problems with your gums require different approaches. For example, if too much of your teeth are covered by your gums, you may have what is considered a “gummy smile.” With cosmetic periodontal surgery, our specialists can correct this issue with cosmetic crown lengthening, which is where we alter the gum line to reveal more of the teeth. This procedure makes short teeth appear normal in length.

Sometimes, we will recommend cosmetic periodontal surgery to correct uneven gum margins. Called ridge augmentation, this procedure is often used to increase gum tissue to fill in the indentation left by a missing tooth. Ridge augmentation is often done in conjunction with tooth replacement processes, such as dental implants.

We invite you to learn more about cosmetic periodontal surgery at our patient education page, and to view specific information about our other procedures:
