Gum Aesthetics Q&A

What is gum aesthetics?

Gum aesthetics procedures include periodontal work to improve the structure or look of your gums. Healthy gums are light pink and fit snugly around your teeth. Several things can contribute to unhealthy-looking gums, including gum disease, genetics, and other things. Treatment by Dr. Civelek can correct the problem.

What are the benefits of gum aesthetics?

Some of the many benefits you can expect after undergoing gum aesthetics treatment with Dr. Civelek include:

  • Beautiful gums
  • Healthier-looking gums
  • Improved gumline
  • Reduced gummy smile
  • No more receding gums
  • Aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Low risk of complications
  • More self-confidence

Gum aesthetics procedures at Holistic Periodontics are simple, often-painless treatments that produce dramatic results.

What gum aesthetics procedures are available?

Dr. Civelek offers the following gum aesthetics treatment:

Gum grafting

If your gums have receded because of gum disease or other reasons, Dr. Civelek offers gum grafting to restore your gumline. He uses tissues from other parts of your mouth or synthetic grafts to restore unhealthy or receding gums and generate new tissue growth.

Crown lengthening

During crown lengthening procedures, Dr. Civelek trims away part of your gumline to make your teeth appear longer. This procedure reduces a gummy smile to improve its appearance and your self-confidence.

Soft-tissue repair

If you’ve had oral cancer or gum tissue injuries that make your gums look unsightly, Dr. Civelek can repair or replace the affected tissues to restore the appearance of your gums and smile.

Which gum aesthetic procedures are best for me?

To learn which gum aesthetics treatments are best for you, Dr. Civelek discusses your oral health history, symptoms, preferences, and aesthetic goals. He examines your teeth and gums and can use in-office dental imaging procedures to develop an in-depth picture of your oral health needs.

You could be a candidate for gum aesthetics if you have receding gums, a gummy smile, previous gum cancer, or other conditions that cause irregularities in how your gums look, feel, and function. Dr. Civelek tailors gum aesthetics procedures to match your personalized needs.
