Aesthetic Soft Tissue Grafting

Longer teeth or exposed tooth roots can look unsightly. They can also increase your sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets. In some cases, gum tissue can be placed to protect and cover these areas.

Procedure: The periodontist administers a local anesthetic, gently prepares the area and then places a gum tissue graft.
