Periodontal Plastic Surgery
In Dr. Rashti’s Beverly Hills dental practice, periodontal surgery is a great way to repairing sensitive or exposed tooth roots preventing further gum recession and providing an aesthetically improve appearance. If you do not like the way your short teeth look, this can be remedied with periodontal plastic surgeries.
Although your teeth may appear short, they are the proper length and shape. The reason teeth may appear shorter is because they are covered with too much gum tissue. This can be reversed with a crown lengthening procedure.
During crown lengthening, Dr. Rashti alters the shape of excess bone and gum tissue to allow more natural tooth to be exposed. Multiple teeth can be treated to make the gum line even and create an aesthetically improved smile.
An additional cosmetic procedure is the soft tissue graft. This is performed to cover exposed tooth roots, prevent further gum recession, and protect the roots from decay and tissue loss.
Tooth loss can cause the jawbone to recede and create an unnatural, unpleasant appearance. It forms an indentation in your gums and jaw, creating a more aged appearance. The appearance of your mouth will be compromised due to the spaces under and between replacement teeth. They may appear to be longer than adjacent teeth.
Bone grafting after tooth loss can also preserve the socket and decrease the risk of gum and bone loss. Less shrinkage allows for an aesthetic restoration, which includes a dental implant or fixed bridge placed around the replacement teeth.
