Why Gums Start to Recede or Cover the Teeth
Have you noticed that your gums have begun to recede? Or are the gum tissues inflamed and puffy? Either problem can lead to a gum line that is uneven and aesthetically unpleasant. Why does this happen?
As we get older, our gums are exposed to numerous stimuli, such as improper brushing, advanced gum (periodontal disease), medications and hereditary dispositions. These stimuli combine to sometimes cause gums to be distorted. Frequently, adults with these problems seek treatment in the form of cosmetic gum surgery. Cosmetic gum surgery provides an excellent, long-term solution to gum-related concerns that may not be serious, but are making you feel uncomfortable.
