Cosmetic Dentistry

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to a variety of treatments designed to improve the look of your smile. Patients often turn to cosmetic dentistry to correct imperfections, such as:

  • Gummy smiles
  • Uneven gum lines
  • Long teeth
  • Exposed roots
  • Receding gums
  • Gum whitening

Today, cosmetic dentistry is incredibly popular, helping people all over the world get the smile they’ve always wanted.

What cosmetic dentistry treatments are available?

The type of treatment you get depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. For instance, crown lengthening is used to treat a gummy smile, uneven gum line, or to lengthen a root for a crown. Ridge augmentation is a treatment that fills in the contour of the gums and the jaw where tooth loss has caused an indentation.

For patients concerned about receding gums, tissue grafting and other root coverage procedures can help to cover up the exposed roots. Others, who have brown or black patches on their gums caused by melanin, can seek relief through a treatment called gum whitening.

What if I have missing teeth?

For patients who have lost their teeth, dental implants are available. A dental implant is an artificial replacement for your tooth’s roots. They are made to look and feel like the rest of your body and fuse with your jaw bone. Dental implants are made up of three parts:

  • Titanium, which fuses to the jaw
  • An abutment, which fits over the titanium where the crown is placed
  • The crown, an artificial tooth that custom-matches the rest of your teeth

Once all three parts are in place, your smile looks as good as new!

For those who need many teeth replaced, the All-on-Four method is a way to get all of the teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth replaced in a single appointment. This is done by placing four dental implants along a dental bridge, which holds all of the artificial teeth. This is revolutionary for modern dentistry.

No matter what your problem with your smile is, there is a cosmetic dentistry solution. If you’re interested in how cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile, contact Cascadia Dental Specialists today to learn more.
