Gum Augmentation, Contouring & Reshaping
Whilst it’s important to have fantastic teeth for a beautiful smile, it’s just as important to look after the health and appearance of your gums.
If your gums are thinning or becoming more delicate, you could be at risk of gum recession later in life, and it can affect your smile.
If you’re looking at contouring and reshaping your gum line, you can have an in-chair gum augmentation procedure at South Street Dental Centre. Gum augmentation is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of the gum tissue or underlying bone structure. The aim is to give you an even gum line, and more symmetrically-looking teeth. Tissue-stimulating proteins (derived from your own blood) are also used to encourage your body’s natural tissue healing ability following any surgical procedure.
