Long Teeth & Exposed Tooth Roots

added on: July 21, 2011

Sometimes, gum recession causes tooth roots to become exposed, which makes your teeth look long. This happens as a result of several causes, including periodontal disease. Whatever the reason, exposed roots are unappealing and leave teeth at risk for developing cavities.

I use a dental laser to recover exposed roots, reduce further gum recession and protect vulnerable roots from decay. Laser dentistry also makes the procedure far more comfortable than traditional methods of the past and recovery time is much shorter.

Don’t let gum recession spoil the appearance of your smile or put your oral health at risk. Ask how we can repair receded areas and prevent further recession by calling (586) 739-2155 to request a private, no-cost consultation.
