Gum Grafting and Recontouring

Gum Grafting and Recontouring

At our dental office, we understand how important your smile is to your confidence and overall well-being. That's why we offer comprehensive dental solutions, including gum grafting and recontouring services, to our esteemed patients in Northern Virginia.

Gum grafting is a transformative procedure that can repair receding gums and prevent further dental damage. If you're experiencing tooth sensitivity or self-conscious about your smile, gum grafting can address these issues, restore your oral health, and enhance your smile.

On the other hand, gum recontouring can balance an uneven gum line, which can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Whether your gums are too high, making your teeth seem longer, or too low, making your teeth appear small, recontouring can deliver a smile that's both healthy and attractive.

Our gum grafting and recontouring procedures are enhanced by the use of biologics—natural substances that promote healing and tissue growth. Biologics can accelerate recovery and ensure optimal results.

Moreover, we leverage Digital Smile Design (DSD) in our treatment planning. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to create a digital model of your mouth and visualize the outcome of your procedure before it begins. With DSD, we can tailor your treatment to your unique needs and preferences, ensuring a result that enhances your oral health and elevates your confidence.

Whether you're starting a new job, entering a new relationship, or simply seeking a smile you can be proud of, our gum grafting and recontouring services can provide the transformation you desire. We invite you to join us on this journey to a healthier, more vibrant smile that not only enhances your oral health but also boosts your confidence and overall well-being.
