Gum grafting and contouring to enhance your smile.
Finally, I had gotten to a point where my recession was causing sensitivity and I didn't like the look of it. Based on the referral from my dentist, and his reputation, my surgery was performed by Dr. Dan Murphy. And I'm so happy with my results: healthy gums that look nice and natural.
Gum grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. Grafts not only improve your beauty of your smile and protect roots, they can also lead to reduced sensitivity while slowing recession and bone loss.
No scalpel. No stitches. No grafts.
Utilizing the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, Dr. Murphy is able to gently loosen the gum tissue and redirect it over the receded area of the tooth without using a scalpel, stitches, or grafts.
If you have excess gum tissue, gum contouring may be the solution you need to get the smile you want. Also known as gum reshaping, gum lifting or crown lengthening, our specialists are able to reshape your gums to enhance your smile.
