If you are unhappy with the appearance of short, unsightly teeth, cosmetic periodontal procedures are a conventional way to prevent future gum recession and fix issues with teeth that appear “short”. The look of your smile can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Dr. McGehee and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist. Although your teeth appear short, in many cases the teeth are simply covered with too much gum tissue. This is easily corrected through a procedure called crown lengthening where excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the
natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth or multiple teeth, even to your entire gum line. We also specialize in soft tissue grafting. In this procedure we use soft tissue to cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession and protect the roots from decay and eventual loss. Whatever your periodontal needs, we have the solution that’s tailored just for you.
