The Painful Reality of Gum Disease

At Champagne Smiles, we recognize the detrimental impact of periodontal disease on oral health. While your pearly whites often take center stage, your gums play a crucial role in safeguarding the function and aesthetics of your smile. As a protective barrier, gum tissue forms a tight seal around the base of your teeth, preventing harmful bacteria from impacting your oral and overall health. The prevalence of mild gum disease, known as gingivitis, affects up to 90% of people globally. When plaque and tartar accumulate, gums can become inflamed, leading to tenderness and the formation of periodontal pockets that trap bacteria. Untreated gum disease can result in infections, sensitivity, pain, bone loss, and even tooth loss. We specialize in a comprehensive range of soft tissue treatments dedicated to restoring the health, function, and natural beauty of this essential component of your smile!

Treatments Designed to Restore Your Gums and Smile


Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a gum disease treatment that recontours gum tissue, and sometimes bone, to expose more of a tooth’s surface for a crown. If there is not enough tooth to hold a crown on its own, then crown lengthening may be necessary. Crown lengthening reduces gum tissue and shaves down bone when necessary, so more of the tooth is above the gum’s surface.


Gingival Graft

A gingival graft, or gum graft, can help correct receding gums. During a gingival graft, we remove a piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth or nearby tissue and then attach it to the area where the gum has worn away. Gum grafts are an excellent option for those wanting better gum health and an improved smile.


Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing are extensive dental cleaning procedures to address gum disease. This treatment involves using a laser to eliminate plaque and tartar from both the tooth surface and gum pockets, thereby eliminating harmful bacteria and toxins. Scaling and root planing treatments are safe and non-invasive approaches to manage periodontal disease effectively.



A frenectomy is an oral surgery that removes the frenum, a small band of connecting tissue in the mouth. Frenectomies help close a gap between two teeth, help increase your tongue’s range of motion, and even improve one's speech.



A gingivectomy is a dental procedure that helps remove or reshape diseased gum tissue. A gingivectomy involves removing gum tissue at the gum margin, and it can be used to treat conditions like gingivitis. This is a common soft tissue periodontal procedure that can help improve the appearance of your smile significantly.


Pinhole Surgical Technique

The pinhole surgical technique is a minimally invasive surgery for receding gums. During this procedure, we create a small hole in the gum and then insert a unique tool to free the gingiva from the underlying bone and tooth. Then, we reposition the gum tissue over the exposed root, lowering the gumline. The pinhole surgical technique is an excellent alternative to gum grafting, as it takes less time and is less invasive.
