Healthy pink gum tissue compliments and frames the teeth. Gum tissue that is red, swollen, or uneven detracts from teeth that are otherwise healthy. Our first order of business is to get the gums into a healthy state. Dr. Hagood trained hygienist will restore the gums to a perfectly healthy state.
Once the gum tissue is healthy and pink, we will cosmetically evaluate the gum line for the proper contours of tissue. A common problem is unsymmetrical gum tissue, which makes the teeth appear to be of different lengths. Dr. Hagood is often able to perform minimal contouring of the gum tissue to a more esthetically balanced appearance. This procedure is called a gum-lift. The bigger the change, the more likely that we will recommend a periodontist to surgically re-contour the gum tissue. Generally, gum tissue heals quickly with little discomfort.
The cosmetic gum lift is a remarkably simple cosmetic procedure that can make a tremendous difference to one’s smile. If you would like a celebrity class smile, without driving to Palm Beach, or Miami, contact the conveniently located Vero Beach office of Dr. Johnson Hagood.
