Why Choose Gum Recession Surgery in Longview, TX

What to Expect From Gum Grafting
During a gum graft, we will very carefully extricate gum tissue from another area within your mouth, often the palate. This tissue sample will be attached to the site of the receding gums. Over time, it will naturally become part of the existing gum line, looking and feeling like it always belonged there.
Gum Grafting Procedure
Because gum grafting in Longview, TX often requires more than one surgical site, it is a more involved procedure than other types of gum recession surgeries. It may also take more time to heal. However, we will ensure that you experience as little discomfort as possible, and that you understand every step we will take to get you the smile you deserve.Contact Us Today
