Restore Your Smile
Probably the most popular reason why people want gum graft surgery is to restore the appearance of their smiles. When your gums recede, it can make your smile unattractive in several ways:
- Makes your smile look uneven
- Exposes unattractive tooth roots
- Makes teeth look long and unhealthy
- Leads to black gaps in your smile
Nice, even gum lines help make your smile look straight. When your gums recede, it can make your smile look crooked, even if your teeth are straight.
Receding gums also expose your tooth roots, which aren’t attractive like the tooth crowns. The tooth roots are darker and have a rough texture, not what people associate with attractive teeth. Exposed tooth roots make your teeth look long and unhealthy. They have the wrong proportions and with the gaps between teeth, seen as black spaces or black triangles, it can make your smile look unhealthy and unattractive.
Gum graft surgery can fix all these problems, restoring the attractive and healthy appearance of your smile.
