Receding gums are often one of the first symptoms of gum disease. Treating your periodontal (gum) disease is an important first step in stopping the progression of gum recession. For moderate to severe gum recession, we offer cosmetic root coverage through gingival grafting. This procedure not only improves the appearance of your teeth, but prevents damage to the roots and relieves pain and sensitivity. Call Delaware Smile Center today to find out more about this procedure and to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dentists.
