Connective Tissue Grafts

Treating gum disease can sometimes leave areas of your mouth with less gum tissue, resulting in a less aesthetically appealing look than you may like. Additionally, if a tooth root is exposed, you may experience sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Connective tissue grafts performed by Dr. Shen can replace missing soft tissue and restore the gums. This procedure can enhance the aesthetics of your smile and also protect your teeth from decay.

“I love Dr. Shen's dental service and she has been very patient in explaining the situation of my teeth. Her staffs are very nice as well. Highly recommended. She is my primary go-to dentist for all teeth related issues.”

Gum Recontouring

Also known as “crown lengthening,” gum recontouring is designed to bring the features of your smile into better harmony. Gummy smile treatment can also improve access to the tooth during a restorative procedure, such as the placement of a dental crown or the filling of a cavity. We perform traditional surgical crown lengthening as well as advanced laser gum recontouring. During your initial consultation, Dr. Shen will determine which approach can optimize your needs and goals. As with all of our dental treatments, we prioritize your comfort and results. Our skilled team will make every effort to ensure your experience is as pleasant as possible.
