Braces work well to straighten teeth, but sometimes they don’t always give you the beautiful smile you were hoping for. Fortunately, there are ways to touch-up your appearance after braces so that you’ll be delighted with the results.
Braces can make it harder to keep your teeth clean and healthy. As a result, gum disease is more common among people who have braces, especially adults with braces. Minor forms of gum disease may just cause swelling, redness, and discomfort during orthodontic treatment, but more serious gum disease can have lasting effects. Receding gums sometimes occurs with orthodontic treatment, leaving your teeth looking unattractive because of exposed roots or black triangles around teeth.
Fortunately, with a gum graft, we can restore the healthy appearance and position of your gums. We can close black triangles and cover the tooth roots that not only look unattractive, they cause sensitivity.
