Your smile is one of the first thing someone notices about you. People form their first impressions based on the appearance of your smile. There was a time when, unless you were born with perfect teeth, you had to live with your smile. Today, a wide range of cosmetic procedures are available. If you have a gummy smile, uneven gum line or elongated teeth, cosmetic periodontal surgery can help create that smile you've always wanted.
Cosmetic periodontal surgery sculpts the gum line so that it is even and in proportion to the amount of exposed tooth versus gum. This procedure removes the excess gum and exposes more of the tooth crown. If your gums have receded, and your teeth appear overly long, then soft tissue grafts can extend the gum line to create an aesthetic balance.
