Renew the Soft Tissue of your Mouth

When you think of a healthy smile, it’s not unlikely to refer only to your teeth. Many people forget to consider the overarching health of their mouth includes surrounding factors, specifically the wellbeing of your gums. These soft tissues guard your mouth against infection while providing your smile with stability. When there is too much or not enough soft tissue in a smile, the wearer will often feel self-conscious and suffer from limited functionality. Our experienced team at Morgan Hill Dental Associates provide individualized soft tissue periodontal treatments including frenectomies and gum recontouring in Morgan Hill, CA. Let us help you find a happy balance in your smile.

Gum Recontouring

Too much gum tissue covering your teeth can make them appear small or short and give you a “gummy” smile look. With care and precision, we’ll reshape the gum tissue and remove excess bone around your teeth to restore better symmetry and improve your tooth-to-gum ratio. Soft tissue recontouring, crown lengthening, and gingivectomy procedures rebalance your smile and restore your confidence!



That slender tissue connecting your top lip to your gums or your tongue to the bottom of your mouth are each called a frenulum. If either of these tissues is too restrictive, you may have difficulty speaking or eating leading to a tongue-tie or lip-tie. Receiving a frenectomy in Morgan Hill, CA releases this problematic tissue, freeing you to get full enjoyment out of meals, conversations, and even simply smiling.


Gum Grafting

Gums receding or pulling away from the teeth leave sensitive roots exposed to harmful bacteria. Gum grafting restores gum tissue where it has receded, usually replacing it with tissue from your own mouth This tissue graft will fuse with your existing gums, alleviating your tooth sensitivity and giving you a consistent and healthy gumline.

Stability for your current and future smile.
