Types of Periodontal Cosmetic Procedures
If you lack confidence or feel discomfort due to a gummy smile, you should know that there are cosmetic surgical procedures available to provide the beautiful smile you’ve been dreaming of. Periodontal issues can cause your teeth to appear too long or short, create exposed tooth roots, or the appearance of an uneven gum line. A dental crown can change the appearance of a tooth’s length.
When tooth roots are exposed, it can cause you to look older than you actually are. Gum graft surgery is a root coverage procedure which conceals exposed tooth roots. This not only alters the look of your smile, but improves oral health by protecting tooth roots from decay and by preventing further gum recession.
If you have suffered tooth loss, you may have indentations in the jawbone or gum in the spot left vacant by your missing tooth. This indentation is caused by the jawbone receding when it no longer holds a tooth in that spot. This indentation causes a replacement tooth to look longer compared to neighboring teeth. Ridge augmentation recaptures the natural contour of your jaw and gums. A natural-looking replacement tooth is then placed to create a beautiful smile that blends seamlessly with your natural, healthy teeth.
