It’s a well-known fact that beauty is all about proportions. When it comes to your smile, having the “golden” ratio of visible gum tissue to tooth enamel equals a truly dazzling smile — but people who have had gum disease or who brush their teeth too aggressively may be dealing with what we call gum recession. This is what happens when the gum tissue has visibly pulled away from where it should be against the teeth, leaving too much enamel exposed. To help, your dentist in Vienna offers the Chao Pinhole Technique — a revolutionary procedure that eliminates the need for sutures and stitches that come with traditional gum grafts. Keep reading to learn how it works, and whether or not you are a great candidate today!

It’s a normal day for you at work, sifting through paperwork, returning emails and attending meetings. As you take a break to run to the restroom, you look in the mirror and notice that your tongue has a strange white film on it.

Are you one of those people that forget to brush your teeth every other night? What about one of those people that only brush your teeth three times a week—like Jessica Simpson! Yeah, you heard right…the celebrity with pearly whites may not have the freshest breath after all.
Fortunately for Jessica, she hasn’t had any dental problems—but your Vienna dentist wants you to know that doesn’t mean you’ll experience the same results from brushing your teeth less and less. In fact, Jessica may not realize just how much she’s truly risking her overall health as well as her oral health.
