Many a time, with the excessive show of the gums, people also complain of having dark coloured gums. Normally, the cosmetic dental procedures that are performed at Smilekraft Dentistry also have health benefits. But converting the dark coloured gums to pink is one procedure that is purely cosmetic. The dark coloured gums are just an extra show of melanin pigments which do not have any harmful effects. We remove this pigmentation using our WaterLase laser to make the procedure least painful while achieving good results almost immediately.
Sometimes, tooth roots can become exposed as gums recede in time, making you look older than you are. The recession can happen as a result of a variety of causes, including periodontal disease. Whatever the reason, exposed roots are unappealing and can leave you at risk of developing cavities on your tooth root. Soft tissue grafts and other root coverage procedures are designed to cover exposed roots, to reduce further gum recession and to protect your vulnerable roots from decay.
