Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth or a “gummy” smile, this condition can be greatly improved with esthetic crown lengthening surgery by Dr. Duckett. Results can sometimes be further enhanced with orthodontic therapy or cosmetic dentistry.

Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, crown lengthening.

During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth, to even your gum line, and to create a beautiful smile. This procedure is often appropriate for most ages and requires very minimal recovery. Most patients return to school or work the next day. Results can be life-changing!
