Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of gum lift surgery by Dr. Weeks and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.

Gum Lifts

Gum Lifts are often necessary for the following reasons:

  • Gummy smile (altered passive eruption) where the gingival tissues failed to recede as much as they should have. This results in short appearing teeth or a gummy smile.

During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile.
