The Importance of Soft Tissue Treatment

When we think of what makes a healthy smile, our teeth come to mind first. Although teeth usually take most of the credit for your ability to communicate and eat, the soft tissues of the mouth often go unrecognized. Your gums guard your smile acting as a barrier from bacteria and infection. Your gums are also foundational to your smile, truly keeping everything tightly in place. For those smiles that contain too much or too soft tissue, the beholder may feel self-conscious with limited oral functionality. If soft tissue treatments are necessary to remedy your smile, trust Breeze Dental Group with your action plan. We offer customized soft tissue periodontal treatments like frenectomies and gum recontouring Pleasanton, CA. These procedures will gently rebalance your dental health while improving your overall wellbeing.

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 Pleasanton, 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.

Your balanced, beautiful smile awaits.
