Cosmetic Gum Treatment in Edmond

Cosmetic Gum Treatment

Correct a Gummy Smile or Uneven Gumline

Your gums are like a frame that provides form and shape to your teeth. A gummy smile can cause teeth to appear too short and detract from your smile. Our doctor is highly skilled at providing cosmetic gum treatment to give you a more youthful, beautiful smile.

Our in-house periodontist (gum treatment specialist) can use gentle and safe laser surgery to recontour your gumline and improve the appearance of your smile. The laser gently removes the excess gum tissue in order to expose more of the tooth underneath.

Correct Gummy Smile

Covering Exposed Roots or Receding Gums

Gum recession is not just an aesthetic concern; in addition to prematurely aging a smile, it exposes the roots of teeth and makes them more susceptible to damage and decay. Because root surfaces are much softer than tooth enamel, they are more prone to erosion and are more sensitive to heat, cold and even sweets. Roots can become so worn that the teeth loosen or break.

Our in-house specialist performs gum tissue grafting to gently cover the roots of your exposed teeth. This will improve the aesthetics of your smile, protect your teeth and end the root sensitivity.

  • Genetics
  • Teeth that are out of alignment
