Gum Augmentation is a minimally invasive dental treatment that corrects the appearance of gum tissue for aesthetic reasons or to treat gum recession. Gum recession, a condition where your gums pull away from your teeth and expose the roots underneath, can increase your risk of tooth decay, sensitivity, and bone loss. Using a powerful dental laser that can effectively kill bacteria and reach inside the deep pockets in the gum line, lost tissue around the teeth can be corrected more successfully with less healing time.
In addition to the treatment of gum recession and gum disease, a gum augmentation can significantly enhance your smile and confidence by improving excess and asymmetrical gum tissue, a condition commonly referred to as a “gummy smile.”
If you are experiencing gum recession causing you discomfort or are self-conscious about the appearance of your gums when you smile, a gum augmentation will be the perfect treatment option for you.
