Cosmetic gum treatment is often involved in conjunction with other dental procedures. This can reduce excess gum tissue and help create a more natural smile.
What is cosmetic gum treatment?
Cosmetic gum treatments aim to replace your gum levels back to their natural levels where they look the most aesthetic. These aim to cover exposed roots in patients with gum recession and at exposing the roots in the case of excess gum.
What does the treatment involve?
It is usually undertaken under local anaesthetic. We would either use an artificial graft or transplant a small amount of gum from a different area of your mouth to cover the defect.
