Root Coverage (Periodontal Plastic Surgery)

Root Coverage (Periodontal Plastic Surgery) to Correct Gum Recession

Do you feel your smile is spoiled because your teeth look too long? Exposed roots, generally caused by receding gums, can make teeth appear too long and asymmetrical in appearance. Your teeth may even start to feel sensitive to hot and cold foods or even sweet drinks. The root surface of teeth is softer than the crown and can be more susceptible to decay and being abraded away by your tooth brush. Our root coverage procedure, called Soft Tissue Grafting, protects teeth and gives you a healthier, more attractive, symmetrical and youthful smile.
