Enhancing Your Smile with Cosmetic Periodontics

Healthy gums are an important part of your beautiful smile. Dr. Zolot is an expert in maintaining the optimum health of your gums as well as their aesthetics.

Do you have a gummy smile?

A smile is said to be ‘gummy’ if a significant amount of upper gingival tissue (gum tissue) is exposed when laughing or smiling. This gives the effect of the upper teeth being too short, and can make sufferers feel very self-conscious.

Ideally your smile should reveal very little gum, and visible tissue should look balanced and even in contrast with your upper lip. Your optimal smile will depend on the shape of your teeth and their size, as well as the shape and size of your lips. Luckily a gummy smile is something that can be corrected through cosmetic periodontal treatment.

Do you have a toothy smile?

Gum recession can expose tooth roots and show more of your teeth than normal. Longer looking teeth and exposed tooth roots give an "old" appearance to your smile. Some people cover their mouths when they smile for this very reason.

Normally gum tissue surrounds and protects the delicate roots of your teeth. Exposed tooth roots are prone to tooth decay, root canals, discoloration and actual jawbone loss. All of this can lead to tooth loss in advanced cases.

Procedures: Soft Tissue Grafting

Do you have missing teeth?

Dental implants are often the preferred treatment option for missing teeth as they preserve bone structure and allow you to maintain a healthy diet.
