Long in the tooth: Gum recession

Do you have gum recession from over brushing?

This is a common problem in adults and can be unsightly and cause sensitivity.

There is often increased wear to the root surface from brushing, which is frequently only poorly ‘corrected’ with bonded tooth coloured restorations. Over time these can become stained and unsightly.

Our approach is to correct the gum recession and replace the gum back to its original position.

This can often be achieved in a single visit without the need to take gum from another site. Healing is quick, with minimal post-operative trouble.
