Gum Grafting to Cover an Exposed Root and Crown Margin in Portsmouth, NH

Our patient was referred due to recession involving her molar and bicuspid teeth. Using a microsurgical tunneling grafting technique, we were able to rebuild her lost gum tissue to cover the exposed roots and prevent future recession. We were even able to cover most of the margin on the molar crown!
As you can see, she had previously had a white plastic filling placed on the first bicuspid tooth in front of the area we grafted. This prevents us from covering the root, and predisposes the recession to continue. The grafted teeth now appear normal, but the filled tooth looks abnormally long. This is why we recommend grafting instead of placing white fillings.

Every patient is unique and we strive to create comprehensive treatment plans tailored to you.
