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