If you find yourself trying to hide a gummy smile, or have sensitive teeth because of exposed roots, you may be a good candidate for periodontal plastic surgery. Dr. Leo Tokarczyk is a periodontal specialist in Springfield and has performed many targeted procedures that correct and enhance the smile. We can restore the gum line and create a more attractive smile with special crown lengthening, bone grafting and gum grafting techniques.
If you have excessive gum tissue covering up the teeth, your teeth may appear shorter than normal and this affects the quality of your smile. Undergoing crown lengthening will help to recreate your smile and restore your self-confidence. Dr. Tokarczyk has extensive experience performing this periodontal plastic surgery procedure. He will customize the treatment to ensure the best possible result.
You may need to undergo one or more of these procedures to restore your gums after gum disease or health problems that have left you with receding gums. Dr. Tokarczyk may recommend a soft tissue graft to rebuild the gum line or a bone graft to restore bone structure after tooth loss. We can perform some procedures under local anesthesia and the tissues heal quickly with proper post-op care. If you are concerned about the appearance of your gums and smile, talk to us about cosmetic periodontal surgery.
