Cosmetic procedures can have a profound impact on your smile, boosting your self-esteem and confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry enhances the aesthetic appeal of your teeth while promoting better oral health.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Crown lengthening is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth’s surface. This is done to make the teeth appear longer and more proportional.
The benefits of crown lengthening include:
- A more aesthetically pleasing smile.
- Improved gum health by removing excess tissue that can trap bacteria and cause inflammation.
- Enhanced function of the teeth by removing excess tissue that may interfere with proper chewing and speech.
Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that involves taking tissue from one part of the mouth (typically the palate) and transplanting it to another area where the gums have receded or thinned. Gum grafting is typically used to treat gum recession, which can be caused by a variety of factors including periodontal disease, trauma, aggressive tooth brushing, or genetics.
Gum recession can lead to several issues, including tooth sensitivity, an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss if left untreated. Gum grafting aims to cover and protect the exposed roots, improve the aesthetic appearance of the gums, and reduce the risk of further damage to the teeth and gums.
There are several types of gum grafting procedures, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The choice of procedure will depend on the extent and cause of the gum recession, as well as the patient’s individual needs and preferences.
Overall, gum grafting is a safe and effective way to address gum recession and protect the health of the teeth and gums. If you are experiencing gum recession, we encourage you to schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options.
Gum reshaping, also known as gum contouring, is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue or reshaping the gum line to improve the aesthetic appearance of the gums and teeth. This procedure is typically used to correct excessively prominent gums that cover too much of the tooth surface.
While gum reshaping is primarily a cosmetic procedure, there are some oral health benefits associated with the treatment:
- Oral Hygiene: Gum reshaping can make it easier to maintain good oral hygiene habits by removing excess gum tissue that can make it difficult to access the tooth surface.
- Reduces The Risk of Gum Disease: Gum reshaping can help reduce the risk of gum disease by removing areas of the gum tissue where bacteria can accumulate and cause inflammation.
- Helps Prevent Tooth Decay: By removing excess gum tissue, gum reshaping can expose more of the tooth surface and reduce the risk of tooth decay.
