Esthetic Crown Lengthening

Teeth are like the subject of a photo. The gums are like the background or scenery. When there is a balance between the two, a beautiful picture results. Sometimes, patients have too much gum showing. This may make teeth look short. To fix this, we can perform Esthetic Crown Lengthening. Here is an example.

Gum Graft with Donor Tissue

When patients have gum recession, the roots of the tooth are exposed. This may cause tooth sensitivity as well as a long unpleasant looking tooth. This can be caused either by the way you brush your teeth or the way your teeth bite together. We can fix this by performing a gum graft. Sometimes we can use donor tissue instead of the patient’s own tissue. This means that there is only one surgery area and patients are more comfortable!
