Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
There are Cosmetic Periodontal procedures that can help you get the smile you desire. For patients that have an uneven gum line, giving the appearance of short teeth, we offer a Smile Alignment procedure to lengthen the teeth by removing and reshaping the gum tissue. This will result in a more natural and symmetrical smile.
When the height and width of the teeth are already the proper size but there is still excessive gingiva, the lip lowering procedure can align the smile to look more natural. Instead of having orthonastic surgery (re-aligning the jaw bone), a simple surgery to lower the lip and restrict its motion will create a more proportional smile.
