If you have receding gums, you probably have questions about how they will change the appearance of your smile, if there's a way to grow back the gum (or gingiva) that you've lost, and the potential reasons for their recession. Unfortunately, there's no way for gums to grow back, but there are some ways to improve your smile after gum recession. The most minimally invasive option is a gum (or gingiva) veneer.
Just as porcelain veneers can help improve the look of your teeth, a gum veneer can help improve the look of your receding gums. Gum veneers are not as well known as veneers for your teeth, so we're here to tell you more about gum recession, the types of gingival veneers that are available to you, how best to care for them, and how they compare to other gum recession treatment options.
