Harmonizing Gingival Margins

Occasionally, patients present with esthetic compromise created by the gingival (gum) margins of the upper front teeth not being at uniform levels. The smile suffers as a result of the disharmony. Esthetic periodontal surgery can create even gingival margins that can create a beautiful smile.


Using connective tissue grafts to cover exposed roots of teeth that look too long combined with crown lengthening to lengthen teeth that appear too short, harmonious tissue margins are created to improve esthetics.
