Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring

smiling patient after cosmetic perio surgery at Dr. BensonsIf you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth, a combination of periodontal procedures by Dr. Benson and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist can greatly improve your situation. Although your teeth may appear short, they are probably the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing a periodontal plastic surgery procedure called aesthetic gingival recontouring. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This procedure evens the gum line, creating a beautiful smile.
