Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery Procedures

Crown Lengthening

Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, crown lengthening. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth, to even your gum line, and to create a beautiful smile.

Gum Grafting

Another cosmetic procedure is the soft tissue graft. It is used to cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession, and protect the roots from decay and eventual loss.

Bone Grafting

Tooth loss causes the jaw bone to recede and can lead to an unnatural looking indentation in your gums and jaw, and appearance of a general aging. The original look of your mouth may not be recaptured because of spaces remaining under and between replacement teeth. They may appear too long compared to nearby teeth.

Bone grafting following tooth loss can preserve the socket/ridge and minimize gum and bone collapse. There is less shrinkage and a more aesthetic tooth replacement for either an implant crown or fixed bridge around the replacement teeth.

For more information about gum grafting, and bone grafting, please refer to the treatment section of our website, and click on each individual procedure for an in-depth description.

Patient Review by Janet L

I had an exceptional experience at La Jolla Dental Boutique with all the procedures I had done, including teeth cleaning, x-rays and an exam with Dr. Irene, replacement of old fillings, an extraction, and an implant. The staff is very friendly, informative and easy to work with. The hygienist performed the most thorough cleaning I can ever remember having! I scheduled an appointment to replace some old fillings and I am very pleased with the result! I later had a tooth extraction and was nervous, but Dr. Irene made it seem easy. She is kind and made sure to explain the procedures as well as aftercare. She has a gentle touch and really put me at ease. At another appointment, Dr. Erez performed an implant for me under sedation. The sedation and the procedure were both successful! I did not experience any discomfort during the procedure and I have gone on to heal without incident. The assistants in the office are so nice and they all seem to work well together! I can highly recommend La Jolla Dental Boutique for your dental care.
