Aesthetic Gum Procedures
Dental Implants Richardson, TX

Patient happily waiting in a dental chair for dentist to begin routine dental examAt Dr. Xixi Wu, we understand that there is a strong connection between looking good and feeling good. One way we help our patients look their best is with aesthetic gum procedures. With the advancement of technology and techniques, cosmetic surgery is less invasive than ever before.

Our office is uniquely qualified to perform many aesthetic gum procedures. We stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to provide you with premium care and optimal results. If you are interested in high-quality aesthetic gum procedures, you have come to the right place.

Crown Lengthening

There are certain times when some of the gum and bone tissue surrounding a tooth needs to be removed so other corrective treatments can occur. For example, the natural tooth may need to be lengthened to make it possible to place a dental crown, or an orthodontist may need to have gum tissue removed so that braces can be placed on teeth that have not erupted. This is known as functional crown lengthening.

Gingival Grafting

Are you concerned that your gums might be receding? Talk to our office about ways to treat the problem. Gum grafting is a name for periodontal procedures dedicated to strengthening certain areas of the gums in order to cover up an exposed tooth root surface. These exposed roots could be the result of gum recession due to gum disease, bite overload, or poorly positioned teeth. When you are suffering from advanced gum disease, you may notice that your gums start to pull away from your teeth. This can lead to increased sensitivity and a host of other problems, so you will need to work with Dr. Wu to treat the issue before it can progress.

Gingival Contouring

For patients who have excessive gum tissue which covers part of the teeth, our dental health technician will use a specialized laser technique which cuts away small amounts of the extra tissue, gradually exposing more of the tooth’s crown. This will allow for a smile which reveals your beautiful teeth rather than excess gum tissue.

Some of the most common aesthetic gum procedures we provide include crown lengthening and gingival grafting. During your consultation appointment, Dr. Wu will discuss your possible treatment options. The type of cosmetic surgery you receive is usually dictated by your individual needs and desires.
