I had this done some yrs ago due to recession of my lower front teeth. I was scared to death but I had a good dentist. Grafted tissue from my palate, after a few stitches I was tender for a while, it did hurt, not gonna lie to you. But seeing the result after a while made me feel good! I still continue to smoke though and I know this contributes to it. At this late date, I hope all went well and u too were satisfied with the result!
