Many of our patients, when thinking about the overall appearance of their smile, do not always think of the gums, yet the way your gums and soft tissues look can have a dramatic effect on the overall aesthetic of your smile. Dr. Jason M. Peterson is pleased to offer multiple cosmetic treatments for your gums, known as periodontal plastic surgery, or gum plastic surgery. We are able to use gum plastic surgery in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to improve and repair a wide variety of flaws and conditions with your gums and soft tissues, such as:
- Gummy or uneven smiles, where excess gum tissue covers up a significant amount of tooth structure
- Receding gum lines, where too much of a tooth root is exposed, causing teeth to look abnormally long
- Jaw irregularities, which often occur after a tooth has been lost, causing ridges in your bones and gums
Our periodontist and team always want you to feel confident and happy with the way your gums look and feel. It is our goal to have you leave our office with a smile on your face each and every time. If you notice flaws in the aesthetic of your gums, please contact our friendly dental team today. We are excited to help you achieve the beautiful smile of your dreams.
