Dr. Toscano is an oral surgeon in New York City for Manhattan, NYC and New York, NY who can restore your smile's health and beauty with periodontal plastic surgery.
Healthy gum tissue is the foundation for tooth vitality and a beautiful smile. Your gums buttress your teeth, protecting them from disease and supporting their many functions.
Due to a variety of factors, gum tissue can either recede from or encroach on your teeth. When your gums pull away from your teeth, they create the appearance of long teeth, increased age and poor health in your smile, including increased sensitivity. When your gums encroach on your teeth, it can create an effect known as a “gummy” smile, where your teeth appear too short, making you look too young for your age.
Many of our patients with these issues are reluctant to smile or show their true self. Thankfully, New York City oral surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Toscano can easily correct both recessive and aggressive gum tissue.
Through a variety of techniques used at our Manhattan periodontics office commonly referred to as periodontal plastic surgery, Dr. Toscano aesthetically repositions your gum line to create a proper ratio between tooth and tissue, effectively restoring the balance and symmetry of your smile. If you have decided to get porcelain veneers, this procedure is often undergone as preparation to create an ideal gingival architecture.
Although it varies from person to person depending on your specific symptoms, periodontal plastic surgery may require several visits to complete. New York City oral surgeon Dr. Toscano will administer local anesthetic or nitrous oxide, oral and intravenous sedation for those with greater anxiety.
Dr. Toscano would be happy to discuss how we can improve your gums. With the proper periodontal home care, you can expect the results to last a lifetime.
