Reverse the Effects of Gum Recession with Skilled Periodontal Care
When gum tissues recede, they pull away from the teeth and expose the underlying tooth roots. This process, known as gum recession, also changes the appearance of the smile, revealing longer-looking teeth and other cosmetic concerns. Gum grafting is a routine procedure performed by our expert periodontist that reverses the effects of gum recession, returning the gum line to a healthier level and an attractive appearance to your smile. Dr. Christopher Bingham and our compassionate, knowledgeable team understand the effects gum recession has on your oral health and well-being. We take a whole-body approach to periodontal care and can help you determine the cause of your gum recession, while providing the necessary gum-grafting procedure to improve your health, comfort and quality of life.
