At 6th Avenue Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, there are several procedures we can utilize to cover and/or protect unsightly, sensitive or exposed root surfaces. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short, unsightly teeth, allow us to tell you how we can help greatly improve the appearance of your smile.


Even if your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length, but covered with too much gum tissue.


This can be corrected with a periodontal plastic surgery procedure called crown lengthening. During this procedure, we reshape excess gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth.


Another possible cosmetic dentistry procedure is known as a soft-tissue graft. This procedure will cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession and protect the roots from decay and eventual loss.



Losing a tooth can cause the jawbone to recede, leading to an unnatural-looking indentation in your gums and jaw. Many people find that this has the effect of making them appear older.


Bone grafting after the loss of a tooth can preserve structure and minimize gum and bone collapse.
