While periodontal procedures are typically associated with treating gum disease, there is also a cosmetic component to your care. Cosmetic periodontal procedures play a significant role in enhancing the appearance of your teeth and gums, improving the overall aesthetics of the gums and their relationship with your teeth.

Dr. William Strutz offers several cosmetic periodontal procedures for your benefit, including:

What’s Cosmetic Periodontal Procedure?

Cosmetic periodontal procedures not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also contribute to improved oral hygiene and health. When your gums are healthy it is easier to maintain good dental hygiene practices, which is essential for your long-term oral health. Our skilled periodontist may recommend a cosmetic periodontal procedure if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Gummy Smile or Uneven Gumline: Excessive gum tissue or a gumline that is uneven can give you an unbalanced smile. Crown lengthening and gum shaping can sculpt your gumline to give you a more balanced and beautiful smile.
  • Long Teeth or Exposed Tooth Roots: Gum recession can cause your tooth roots to be exposed, making your teeth appear longer than normal. Gum grafting or other root exposure procedures cover these exposed roots, restoring your oral health and smile as well as protecting you from decay and other issues caused by exposed roots.
  • Indentations in the Gums and Jawbone: Tooth loss may cause an indentation in the gums and jawbone. This not only affects your smile but also impacts the success of tooth replacement options. A ridge augmentation can “fill in” this defect to restore the natural contours of your gums and jaw.
