Gum recession can cause the tooth to appear long thus violating the aesthetic recommended width-to-length ratio of teeth.
The treatment should be carried out by a dentist who restricts their practice to periodontology.
This is a surgical procedure used to “cover” exposed surfaces of roots.
Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Sometimes the gum recession gets too much and starts to affect the cosmetic appearance of your teeth and smile. You can enhance your smile by covering one or more of these roots that make your teeth appear too long by treating them with cosmetic “gum” plastic surgery.
When gum recession is a problem gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an important option. Gum grafts are one of the most delicate procedures performed in dentistry today.
This procedure is usually performed by our dental specialist in the field of gum tissue, known as a periodontist.
The gum graft procedure is highly predictable, and results in a stable, healthy band of attached tissue. This added tissue reseals and protects the tooth and underlying bone.

I cannot thank Dr Doshi and all his amazing staff enough for making me feel so comfortable and at ease.
They have given me something that I have always missed, the confidence to smile, I wish I had taken the step to enhance my life earlier.
The Perfect Smile is unlike any other dentist that I have attended. The friendly atmosphere and facilities are second to none.
Not once was I put under any pressure to go ahead with my treatment, but I'm glad I did. Worth every penny.
Look out anyone who's holding a camera.

I suppose being of a certain age one tends to think of a dentist as a NHS doctor, interested purely in your well-being. The Perfect Smile approach is basically not realty about patient well-being (at all) but making a profit, they are of course a private enterprise and only exist to make money.
Nothing wrong with that as long as you know what your letting yourself in for.
The ‘free’ consultation is nothing more than a sales pitch showing you lots of before and after pics and letters of recommendation (all at least 10 years old). Then it start to get expensive, the full consultation is £200 this includes a treatment plan. I did this, my appointment started 15 mins late (no explanation) and before I knew it I had a treatment plan that totalled £32,000. Yes that’s right £32,000.
Ok that was the full Monty (12 veneers etc.) but what was painfully clear is the desire at all time to upsell you to include everything possible chargeable, probably knowing that you would settle for less – but hey you got a nice cup of coffee while you waited.
Ok so Im being harsh, yes probably (as I doubt I will continue the treatment), I got no follow up call, but gritted my teeth (haha) and decided to call them to arrange an appointment for the hygienist (despite having only been 3 months ago they reckoned I needed two one hour sessions costing £250). The incredibly unhelpful receptionists said they had no appointments available for 3 weeks.
At this point I thought hang on let’s compare and contrast ‘perfect smile’ with my usual dentist. My private dentist charges £51 for a 45 min session with a hygienist (available next day), Perfect Smile charge £125 for one hour, assuming you can wait three weeks, a quick search on the internet reveals that Perfect Smile are way more expensive across the board pretty much for all treatments than your standard private (im not talking national health here) dentist.
Of course they are all those sales staff, frothy coffee and glossy adverts cost money, which we the patient have to pay for. So bottom before embarking on any treatment with PS do compare with other private dentists, if you like frothy coffee, high pressure sales, long wait for appointments etc. by all means go ahead, if you’re more financially astute and time sensitive do look elsewhere.
