Cosmetic gum treatments

What are Cosmetic Gum Treatments?

Cosmetic gum treatments aim to restore the gum levels to their natural and aesthetic levels. These are aimed at covering the exposed roots in the case of gum recession and at exposing the roots in the case of excess gum (gummy smile). At BPI Dental we have over 20 years of treating these conditions with the latest advances and techniques from Europe and North America.

Gum Recession

Exposed roots or gum recession can be very distressing for some people not just because of the unsightly appearance but also they can be extremely sensitive to temperature as well as certain foods. Here we can rebuild the lost gum tissue by taking a small graft from the roof of the mouth and transplanting this on the affected sites. This is also done under local anaesthetic and the results look superb after a short healing period. As the graft is taken from your body there is very little chance of rejection.

This young man presented with substantial recession of the gums around his upper teeth which prevented him from smiling. The after picture shows the results after 3 months and he was extremely please with the result and could not stop smiling

Gummy Smile

Excess gum can be very distressing for some people as this extra gum makes the teeth appear much shorter than normal. We can reposition the gum usually under local anaesthetic in just one visit. The patient leaves with a beautiful smile with normal contours and lengths of both teeth and gums being in harmony. This relatively short surgical procedure leads to a beautiful smile and the case below illustrates this.
