A Gum Graft is performed to restore proper protective function and aesthetics. Dr. Boynton does this by either harvesting gum tissue from the roof of the mouth or using an “off the shelf” product.
In either case, the goal is to prevent the rate of recession and to improve the aesthetics of the teeth and gums.
What is a Gummy Smile?
A gummy smile is a term used to describe the smile of someone who appears to have short teeth. The truth of the matter is that a periodontal plastic surgeon can easily allow your teeth to show their normal length and beauty.
What is Interdisciplinary Treatment?
Interdisciplinary treatment takes advantage of the unique skill sets and specialized knowledge each individual dentist is able to provide in the design and implementation of complex dental treatments. Periodontal plastic surgery is one way that Dr. Boynton works with top restorative dentists and other specialists in the greater Boulder and Denver area to generate dramatic treatment outcomes.
