Dr. Jonathan Tiger, a periodontist, can provide cosmetic gum surgery for patients with a gummy smile in Pomona, NY. Many patients are unhappy with their smile when their gum line is overgrown or uneven, creating a poor appearance. There are a wide variety of cosmetic procedures available today to improve your smile.
Periodontal plastic surgery can not only recreate a normal and aesthetically pleasing appearance, it also reconstructs the surrounding tissues to give the teeth better support. With severe periodontal disease, surgery will be necessary to regenerate and repair the damage done to the tissues surrounding the teeth and the bone. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants may be indicated in some patients. A skilled periodontal plastic surgeon such as Dr. Tiger can often restore a patient's smile with cosmetic gum surgery and other techniques.
Cosmetic gum surgery removes the gum tissue that is diseased and causing a gummy smile or uneven gum line. Dr. Tiger uses techniques that help sculpt the gum line into a more normal and aesthetically pleasing state. If you have receding gums a tissue graft may be the technique for your case. For a gummy smile, tissue resection may be indicated.
Prevention is of course the best strategy for a gummy smile. Brush and floss regularly and see a profession to have the tartar removed from your teeth regularly. Ask Dr. Tiger about any treatments that may be needed to prevent periodontal disease from causing further damage to your oral health and beautiful smile.
A healthy and attractive smile can be a huge boost to your self-confidence and makes a good first impression with those you meet. If you are suffering from a gummy smile in Pomona, NY, call Dr. Tiger for an evaluation and treatment plan options for cosmetic gum surgery.
