At the Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to enhance your smile. With so many options, it can be challenging to determine which procedure is best for your needs. Let’s take a look at some of the cosmetic procedures we offer and how to tell which one is right for you.
If you are unhappy with the way your gums look, you may be a candidate for cosmetic periodontal surgery. This type of surgery can improve the appearance of your gums by making them more symmetrical and reducing the amount of gum tissue that is visible. Cosmetic periodontal surgery can also prevent further gum recession, helping to keep your teeth looking their best.
To see if you are a candidate for cosmetic periodontal surgery, we will need to evaluate the health of your gums and the severity of your gum recession. If you are concerned about the way your gums look, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Barry Levin.
Crown lengthening is a common procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of your smile. This type of surgery can be used to correct a “gummy” smile, where too much gum tissue is visible, or to expose more of the tooth so that it can be restored. During a crown lengthening procedure, some gum tissue will be removed to improve the appearance of your smile. Crown lengthening can also be used to prepare the mouth for dental implants. If you have a gummy smile, crown lengthening may be the ideal cosmetic dentistry service for you.
If you have receding gums, you may be a candidate for gum grafting. This type of surgery can help to restore the health of your gums and improve the appearance of your smile. During your gum grafting, Dr. Levin will take a small amount of gum tissue from another spot in your mouth and use it to cover exposed tooth roots and prevent future decay. Gum grafting can be used to enhance the appearance of your smile, to protect your oral health, or both.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. Implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and act as a foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, a dental bridge, or dentures. They look and feel like natural teeth, making them a popular solution for missing teeth.
