Soft Tissue Grafting
Normally gum tissue surrounds and protects the delicate roots of your teeth. Exposed tooth roots are prone to tooth decay, root canal infection, discoloration and actual jawbone loss. All of this can lead to tooth loss in advanced cases.
Receding gums can also look unsightly. 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.
Cosmetic Soft Tissue Grafting can add a new youthful appearance to your smile.
