See a dentist: Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth's root.

No: Gum tissue does not regenerate, so when it is lost, it is important for patients to control the reason for initial recession (whether it be poor oral health care, bruxism, etc.) and then speak to a periodontist about corrective soft tissue surgery to rebuild the tissue in the area and protect the roots of the natural teeth.See 2 more doctor answers
