Cosmetic Surgery

Oral Plastic Surgery is a relatively new addition to periodontics and oral surgery. Like other kinds of plastic surgery, these elective procedures are often used to create a more esthetic smile, to correct a deformity, and re-establish symmetry.

Procedures such as crown lengthening or “gum lifts” have recently received more attention in the media thanks to shows such as Extreme Makeover and newspapers such as USA Today.
