SOFT TISSUE PLASTIC SURGERY

Gum Plastic for Beautiful Smile!

It is known that the basic element of tooth esthetics is the symmetrical appearance, the color, the volume and the harmony of the soft tissues of the periodontium.

Soft tissue surgery or periodontal plastic surgery, as it is called, is necessary to a greater or lesser extent in the following situations:

  • when it is necessary to increase the thickness of the gingiva where there is a deficiency creating a functioning or an aesthetic problem
  • when gums should be removed in areas where there is excess
  • in cases of gingival recession where the teeth are more sensitive to stimuli such as cold and hot and they appear longer
  • frenectomy, when effective oral hygiene is not possible or when they should be removed for orthodontic purposes.
