Correcting a Gummy Smile or Uneven Gum Line

An ideal smile reveals as much of your teeth as possible with little gum showing and a gum line that is even and contoured in harmony with the upper lip. If you have an excessive gingival display, your teeth can look short and you may feel that your smile is unattractive. A dental crown lengthening procedure, also known as a gum lift, can reduce the amount of gum tissue and expose more of your tooth. Dr. Eskow will sculpt the gum line to a natural, even appearance. This procedure is not as painless as you think, and your gums heal faster than normal tissue.

Fixing Long Teeth or Receding Gums

Gum recession can cause the tooth roots to become exposed, aging your smile and making your teeth look longer. Gum recession also increases the risk for tooth decay, tooth sensitivity and tooth loss. Dr. Eskow can perform a gum graft surgery to cover the tooth roots and correct gum recession. Gum grafting can be applied to one or several teeth to correct the contours of the gum line and project a more natural and beautiful smile line.

We are excited to offer a new, microsurgical treatment in our Bethesda and Washington DC dental offices for the treatment of receding gums. Dr. Eskow is one of the first dentists in Maryland to offer the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique, a patented, minimally invasive, technique that treats gum recession without incisions or sutures.

Replace Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth due to periodontal disease, Dr. Eskow can design a dental implant treatment plan to permanently replace your lost teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace one, several, or all of your missing teeth. They are currently the gold-standard when it comes to replacing teeth in your smile zone. We offer a full range of dental implant services including all-on-four implant dentures, bone grafting and sinus lifts.

Ridge Augmentation

Ridge augmentation is a procedure that restores the natural contour of your gums and jaw. This procedure is also known as a ridge expansion, or sinus augmentation. When a tooth is lost, the bone that once surrounded it begins to recede. This can create indentations in the gum and jawbone where the tooth used to be. Dr. Eskow can preform a Ridge augmentation to regenerate bone and periodontal tissue for a healthier, more beautiful smile.
