Cosmetic periodontal surgery is usually performed in conjunction with other restorative procedures like veneers but can be a stand-alone procedure. Cosmetic periodontal surgery refines the contours of the gums. In a person with a “gummy” smile, sculpting and refining the tissue will result in longer looking teeth and a more beautiful smile. In the case of veneers or another restorative procedure, cosmetic periodontal surgery can provide tissue symmetry which enhance the beauty of a smile. Your smile is the first thing someone notices about you.
