There’s so much to take into account when considering changes you’d like to make to your smile. There are occasionally situations when an alteration to your gum line will have a much more pronounced effect than changes made to your teeth. For patients who find themselves concerned about the size or shape of their gum line, our Denver dentist offers both cosmetic gum surgery and reconstructive gum surgery. As our dentists are skilled with both restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, they understand the delicate balance between form and function. Drs. Hargreaves are ideally suited to craft your new gum line. Read on to learn more about just what gum surgery can accomplish for a smile (and its health).
Smile Changes Possible Through Gum Surgery with our Denver Dentist
- Gummy Smile – Excessive gingival display, which just means an overly gummy smile, can keep patients from showing off their full smiles. We’re never happy when a dental imperfection keeps someone from grinning. Our Denver dentist is able to remove a portion of your gums from right at the gum line to lengthen your displayed teeth and balance the tooth-to-gum ratio.
- Long Tooth Smile – Gum recession can occur from age, teeth grinding, or malocclusion. Its effects can take a toll on a smile. If you feel your teeth are overly long, our Denver dentist can graft tissue onto the area to lengthen your gum line.
- Smile post-Periodontal Disease – After your gums have been struck by periodontal disease, you will feel and see its effects. Your teeth may feel loose in your gums. Moreover, there may be disease remaining at the gum line. Our Denver dentist can remove diseased tissue, and graft healthy tissue in its place to diminish adverse effects.
- Gum Recontouring – No matter your cosmetic wish, we are able to reshape your gum line to create a symmetrical and beautiful smile.
