If you’ve looked in the mirror recently to see your teeth looking yellow near the gum line, this isn’t a stain on your teeth, it’s likely a receding gum. When your gums begin to recede, it exposes your tooth’s dentin which naturally has a yellow hue. You might also start to experience increased sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Eventually, receding gums can result in pockets between your teeth where bacteria can build-up. Without treatment, this can result in gum disease (if you don’t already have it), bone loss, and tooth loss. So why does gum recession happen? Discover six of the top reasons below.

The new owner of Center For Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Mckinnon Forbes has done several procedures on me when was practicing in North Carolina and I must say that Dr. Forbes has greatly exceeded my expectations. I still travel to Nashville to his new office to see him. After having dental procedures by a variety of dentists in the past, I found Dr. Forbes to be extremely knowledgeable, gentle and explained my options in a manner that was understandable while not being pushy. Dr. Forbes has a great demeanor and chairside manner and I am exceedingly happy with the results of his work.

Dr. White is an amazing dentist, and he has a dedicated and skilled team working with him. Having full mouth restoration, I have only good things to say. Dr. White is extremely skilled and genuinely cares for his patients. He listens and hears what his patients say all while applying his professional and knowledgeable expertise. He explains what he does, before and during the procedure. Dr. White and his staff are cutting edge always continuing their education in order to provide the best for their patients and the dental profession.
