Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
Cosmetic periodontal surgery encompasses many different types of procedures, but they all have the same goal—to create an even and attractive gum line that compliments the teeth and gives a patient a beautiful, confident smile. It can involve removing excess gum tissue that is growing over the teeth and making them appear too short, or the opposite: restoring the gums where they have receded. Dr. Delica can also fix any deformations in the bone supporting the teeth that are creating aesthetic flaws, ensuring every patient walks out of our periodontal office eager to show off their smile.
Gum recession is one of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease, in which the gums look like they have “pulled back” from the teeth. This is actually a result of them becoming inflamed and breaking down due to the underlying infection, and it’s not only bad for someone’s health, but it can also make the teeth appear unnaturally long. Gum grafting corrects this by using oral tissue borrowed from a patient’s own mouth to replace and fully restore the gum line where it has receded. This not only creates a more pleasing smile, but it also helps protect the delicate roots of the teeth from decay!
Do you have a gum line that makes your teeth appear too short or stubby in relation to your face and lips? This can easily be corrected with crown lengthening, which involves painlessly removing any excess gum tissue to reveal gorgeous, previously hidden enamel to help the teeth appear longer and fuller. This same procedure can also be used to even out the gum line to create a perfectly symmetrical and beautifully balanced smile.
Once our team has your gums looking and feeling great, now it’s time to give your teeth the attention they deserve! With our teeth whitening treatments, we can make annoying stains due to coffee, wine, tobacco, or natural aging disappear in as little as an hour. And, because your whitening will be handled by professionals, you’ll enjoy a smile that is six to eight shades lighter in a single appointment. Plus, your teeth won’t be sensitive afterward like with other procedures or kits.
