A Beautiful, Healthy Smile

Gum Architecture

Creating a natural beautiful smile involves the gums as much as the teeth. Often this is ignored by dentists and results in a compromised aesthetic result. Dr See evaluates the gums and offers advanced techniques to improve the heights, symmetry and shapes.

Gum Recontouring

 

Gum recontouring is a technique used by Dr See to raise the heights of the gum tissue covering the teeth. The goal is to create overall symmetry and harmony in the smile.

There are several situations where gum recontouring may be used:

  • A 'gummy' smile

  • The front teeth appear short and length has to be added. The length cannot be added to the biting edges because it is not in harmony with the face so it needs to be added at the gum line of the tooth

  • The gum levels are asymmetrical. 

 

At Advanced Dentistry Sydney we use different techniques for gum recontouring. Lasers can be used to change gum heights as well as minor surgical procedures. We offer many of these extensive dental procedures in-house so you don’t need to be referred elsewhere.

Gum Grafting

 

Gum grafting or soft tissue grafting is used when the teeth appear too long. This is often caused by a condition called gingival (gum) recession. This happens when the gum line recedes and exposes the root surfaces. These root surfaces are darker than the crown of the tooth, which results in an unaesthetic appearance. These surfaces can also become sensitive to thermal changes such as drinking cold water.

The most effective way to treat this is grafting new gum tissue over the exposed root surfaces. This not only dramatically improves the appearance of the smile, but promotes long term gum health too. See below some examples of gum recession that have been grafted by Dr See using best practice techniques.
