Dental issues don’t just affect your teeth. When your gums begin to pull away from your teeth due to gum recession, there are several factors that help determine the total cost of surgery.
Find out what causes gum recession and how much gum graft surgery may cost.
When the gum line recedes from a tooth, the recession exposes more of your tooth or tooth rot. Gum recession can be caused by periodontal diseases, genetics, aggressive tooth brushing, tooth decay, and other issues.
An exposed tooth may change the appearance of your smile and cause sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages. If left untreated, you may lose a tooth due to decay.
Having gum recession surgery—known as gum graft surgery—can be an affordable solution for correcting your smile. It’s usually well worth the cost of treatment for your overall comfort and oral health.
The cost of gum graft surgery depends on these questions:
A typical gum tissue graft can cost between $600 to $1200 for a single procedure in a specific area.
Gum contouring is a cosmetic surgery that can be performed at the same time as your skin graft. It is designed to trim your gums to be even. However, this can bring your total bill up to around $1,000 to $3,000 per area.
Additional costs include a diagnosis exam, x-rays, and more. Talk with a Kool Smiles dentist about treatment options and how to keep costs low.
