Gum Contouring and Reshaping  
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is primarily used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. This is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth, usually the front teeth, and this can leave the length of the teeth looking too short, which can affect a person’s general desire to smile. Such a condition may be caused due to genetics, health circumstances or as a result of certain high blood pressure prescriptions. This can have an affect on an individual’s self-confidence and may see them do their best not to smile in public. Thankfully, gum contouring is a dental treatment which is painless and able to solve the problem of ‘gummy smile’ through quick and painless treatment.
Gum Surgery  
Periodontitis is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooths surfaces, along with an overly aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe (i.e. a clinical exam) and by evaluating the patients x-ray films (i.e. a radiographic exam), to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth.[1] Specialists in the treatment of periodontitis are periodontists; their field is known as "periodontology" or "periodontics".The cornerstone of successful periodontal treatment starts with establishing excellent
Gingival Flap Surgery  
Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum procedure. The gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily. This allows a dentist to reach the root of the tooth and the bone.Gingival flap surgery is used to treat gum disease (periodontitis). It may be recommended for people with moderate or advanced periodontitis. Usually, a treatment that doesnt involve surgery is done first. This is called scaling and root planing. If this treatment does not eliminate the gum infection, gingival flap surgery may be used. It also may be done along with another procedure known as osseous (bone) surgery. Your periodontist or your dental hygienist will first remove all plaque and tartar (calculus) from around your teeth. He or she will make sure that your oral hygiene is good. Your periodontist also will evaluate your health and the medicines you take. This is important to make sure that surgery is safe for you. First, you will get a shot to numb the area. Then the periodontist will use a scalpel to separate the gums from the teeth. They will be lifted or folded back in the form of a flap. This gives the periodontist direct access to the roots and bone supporting the teeth. Inflamed tissue will be removed from between the teeth and from any holes (defects) in the bone. The periodontist then will do a procedure called scaling and root planing to clean plaque and tartar. If you have bone defects, your periodontist may eliminate them. This procedure is called osseous recontouring. It smoothes the edges of the bone using files or rotating burs. After these procedures are completed, the gums will be placed back against the teeth and stitched in place. Some periodontists use stitches that dissolve on their own. Others use stitches that have to be removed a week to 10 days after the surgery. Your periodontist also may cover the surgical site with a bandage known as a periodontal pack or dressing. You will have mild to moderat

Skourasdent Clinic - Dr Theodora Skoura

Skourasdent Clinic

Vasilisis Sophias 48, next to Hilton hotel, Athens, 11528
Rating from 5 Reviews Was one of my most pleasant dental experiencesStephanie, Greece, 17 04 16

I went in for a regular cleaning and checkup and discovered that I had two slightly fractured teeth. Dr Skouras filed the fractures away and then filled them with composite and capped them. I had no pain, which is unusual for me, and I did not feel nervous, since Dr Skouras and her assistant were wonderful and put me at ease. I have had a lot of dental work in my life and so tend to be nervous, but I can say that my experience at SkourasDent was one of my most pleasant dental experiences. Dr. Skouras is a well-educated and kind person. She and her assistant are very friendly and nice, and their English is perfect. I chose SkourasDent at first because the practice is listed on the US Embassy's list of recommended doctors, and I will be going back and also bringing my children there for all their dental needs.

This cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of, if your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile.
Gum Surgery from 450 €
Gum surgery has some similarities with the tree pruning because it does,in part,involve cutting away in order to stimulate growth of tissues,just as removing drying and shrinking part of trees encourages fresh growth of limbs.And sometimes,new tissue needs to be grafted in.

82, Kifisias Avenue, Ampelokipoi, ATHENS, 11526
Rating from 1 Review He is patient and gives full details before and after the procedureNeeraj, Denmark, 31 08 17

I had a rather complicated filling procedure which was perfectly done by Dr. Stratikis. He is patient and gives full details before and after the procedure. Very kind and accommodating staff too. I was even called a few days after the procedure just to be checked on. I even got free cleaning procedure and goodie bag just because I was there. The clinic is very centrally located and the near metro station and on the main road, near hotels/accommodation, good food joints in the neighborhood and other shopping. Inside is modern and very aesthetically decorated. One feels at home. They even have a place for kids. My own daughters were busy through the long operation which was almost an hour and a half.
