There are a range of non-surgical treatments for periodontal disease, including scaling and root planing and the application of topical medicines. For more serious cases, we also offer a range of surgical procedures to treat periodontal disease, as well as cosmetic issues relating to the gums.
Crown Lengthening — Crown lengthening is recommended for patients who have a large amount of gum tissue that can cause their teeth to look shorter than normal. The procedure involves reshaping the excess tissue — and, in some cases, the underlying bone — to expose more of the base of the teeth. This can either be to prepare a tooth for a crown fitting or for purely cosmetic reasons.
Soft Tissue Grafting — Serious cases of gum disease like periodontitis can cause the gums to recede over time, exposing the roots of the teeth and giving them an elongated appearance. A gum graft protects the roots and improves the cosmetic look. Replacement tissue is taken from another area of your mouth or from a donor.Back to treatment
