For patients looking to restructure their smiles and gum lines, we offer top-of-the-line gingivectomy procedures. A gingivectomy procedure can reshape any gum line, helping to correct gummy smiles, receding gums, or uneven gums, and can correct the cosmetic issues that sometimes arise from periodontal disease.
For patients who want to correct a gummy smile, a crown lengthening procedure may be in order. Crown lengthening procedures reduce the amount of gum that shows above the front teeth when a patient is smiling, creating the appearance of longer teeth and a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Finally, we offer ridge augmentation procedures to patients who suffer from indentations in the gum line. These indentations can arise when a tooth falls out or is removed with an extraction, and the gum line and jaw begin to pull back. Without the tooth to hold the gum and bone in place, the area can sag. We can correct this issue with a ridge augmentation procedure and a dental implant.
If you are a dentist looking to refer a patient or if you are a patient who has been referred, call our office in Los Angeles today to discuss our cosmetic periodontal surgeries. We would be happy to take your call at 818-788-8787.
