Get Your Smile Back With Gum Contouring in McLean, VA
Add that final touch for a well-balanced, beautiful, and healthy smile.
ADD AN AESTHETIC TOUCH TO YOUR SMILE
Is your smile feeling unbalanced? Whether you have a “gummy” smile or your teeth appear longer than normal, Dr. Gocke can enhance your smile with periodontal cosmetic surgery services, such as crown lengthening, gum grafting, and gum contouring, in his McLean office.
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING ANY OF THESE SCENARIOS?
“I have a gummy smile or uneven gum line.”
You’re not alone. An uneven gum line gives the appearance that your smile is off balanced, but our oral surgeon in McLean, VA, Dr. Gocke, can help. He can use his skills with gum contouring or crown lengthening to sculpt your gums and expose just the right amount of tooth evenly.
“My teeth look long because my roots are exposed.”
Gum recession is common among many in the community, leaving the tooth root exposed. This gives the illusion of longer teeth and could make you look older. With gum grafting, Dr. Gocke can cover exposed tooth roots, stop gum recession, and protect your smile from decay and sensitivity.
“There's indentations in my gums or jawbone.”
Do you have missing teeth? If so, your jawbone will start receding because it doesn’t have support from a tooth. You’ll see indentations in the gums and jawbone AND your face will appear sunken. To fix the indentations, Dr. Gocke can do ridge augmentation to recapture the natural contour of your gums and jaw. Then, he can place a dental implant to give your mouth the support it needs to look and function naturally.
WHY SEE DR. GOCKE FOR COSMETIC PERIODONTAL WORK?
Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
The revolutionary Chao technique is incision-free and suture-free. With this technique, Dr. Gocke can treat recessive gums in a fraction of the time of traditional treatment. It also makes it possible for him to treat multiple teeth in a single visit.
Standard treatment of recessive gums with tissue grafts requires precise suturing that can take as long as 45 minutes per tooth. This standard treatment also requires recovery time for the patient as the grafts heal. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique provides our patients with another treatment option that eliminates these requirements completely.
