Is Cosmetic Dentistry Necessary?

At Sani Dental Group we believe that cosmetic dentistry is not only for aesthetic purposes, having your teeth in optimal conditions can also benefit anyone in many functional ways.

3) Are all cosmetic dental procedures permanent?

A= YES, cosmetic procedures are permanent, which is why every patient is talked through the process of each treatment. Each patient has a different pathology, which is why the dentist will explain clearly the best alternatives for you.

What is a Gummy Smile?

No, it is not a smile full of gummy bears. A gummy smile is not very attractive to have for many people. Medically speaking it is known as an excessive gingival display. In other words, it is when too much gum shows around your teeth when smiling.

Since it is not a very attractive look, many people look into cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve their smile. There are various treatments for this kind of dental situation but the most known treatments are gum grafting, gingivoplasty, and crown lengthening.

Cosmetic Dentistry to Correct a Gummy Smile

  • Gum Grafting: a gum graft is necessary for two main reasons.

One is to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession. Gum recession is when the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds your teeth wears away or pulls back, exposing too much of a tooth and sometimes even the root.

These gaps make it easy for bacteria to accumulate and cause diseases. If left untreated serious complications can occur, to even losing dental pieces.

The second reason for a gum graft is for aesthetic reasons, gaps between gums and teeth look very bad and even dirty. Many people don't even know their gums have receded since it is a gradual process. Overtime sensibility on the teeth appears. A Gum tissue graft is needed to prevent further complications.

Gingivoplasty: A gingivoplasty is when dentists reshape the gum tissue around the teeth. Giving the patient a more attractive appearance. This procedure is performed primarily for cosmetic purposes for the patient.

Gingivectomy: What is the difference between a Gingivectomy and a Gingivoplasty?

The difference between these two procedures is almost nothing. A Gingivectomy is a surgical periodontal surgical treatment that also reshapes gums around teeth.

A Gingivectomy is mostly done to removed diseased gum tissue or pockets between the teeth and gums that cannot be cured with antibiotics. A Gingivectomy is usually done before gum disease has spread and damaged the bone supporting your dental pieces.

  • Crown Lengthening: This procedure fixes the excess amount of gingival display around the teeth, usually known as a gummy smile. For people with normal size teeth but their gums cover them in a non-common way.

Besides being a procedure that improves the way your gums and teeth look, a crown lengthening is needed when there is not enough tooth to hold a crown on its own.

All these dental procedures offer great advantages for improving your smile.

Which treatment is the best for me?

Now that you know specifically what each dental procedure does, you need to know your needs and choose which treatments will benefit you the most.

If your needs are for cosmetic reasons, a Gingivoplasty might be just what you need. On the other hand, if you need help with a dental health problem from your gums, a Gingivectomy or Crown lengthening might be your choice.

Always remember, there is no better guide for any dental solution than the one of an expert. Our dentists will guide you through choosing the right treatment for you, from diagnostics, evaluation, and your needs. The right procedure will always be the one that gives you optimal results.
