Healthy gums help support good oral health and create a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing smile. Your gums can make an impact on the visual appearance of your smile. It is important to address any cosmetic concerns you may have about your gums. As is common in dentistry, cosmetic dental concerns are often indicators or the cause of more advanced dental concerns. Whether you have a gummy smile or receding gum line, Bethesda, MD Bethesda Dental Implant Center offers procedures for the treatment of gum concerns.
Gummy Smiles Bethesda, MD
Are your gums all you see when you smile? Some patients have gummy smiles, meaning the gum line sits too low on the teeth. Teeth may appear short and the gums become the unwanted focal point of your smile. Dr. Eskow may recommend a dental crown lengthening procedure to bring your teeth and gums into balance. Also referred to as a gum lift, this procedure will reduce the amount of gum tissue that is exposed making your teeth appear longer. Dr. Eskow is a highly trained and experienced restorative dentist that has a carefully trained eye for facial esthetics. Dr. Eskow will work with you to determine the smile design that will accentuate your best smile and support your optimal oral health.
The opposite of gummy smiles are smiles with a receding gum line. Receding gums leave too much of the tooth exposed. When left untreated, gums can recede so far that they leave the root of the tooth exposed. This can be painful and cause severe tooth sensitivity and may even result in tooth loss. Bethesda Dental Implant offers a variety of dental procedures that can restore the aesthetics to your smiles. Depending on your personal cosmetic goals and oral health, Dr. Eskow may recommend either the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation or Gum grafting surgery.
