Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the gum, teeth, and even the bite. You can think of it as dental plastic surgery. Endodontic and periodontal plastic surgery give you a perfect, natural and lasting dental structure you will be proud of for years to come.
By focusing on the aesthetics of your dental structure; both endodontic and periodontal surgeries serve the same purpose as traditional dentistry. They give you wholesome dental health on top of a gorgeous smile.
Dental plastic surgery improves on the alignment, color, position and shape of your entire dental structure, and not just your teeth. That's what gives you an overall improved smile appearance.
To clear things a bit, cosmetic dental surgery is divided into several specialized fields. The most notable ones are endodontics and periodontics. The next part investigates each of these areas so that you have a better understanding of what to expect.
A cosmetic dental surgeon specializes in dental pulp issues trips any issue connected to the pulp. Therefore, the dentist can handle cases related to loss of teeth due to dental pulp problems and at the same time, give you a smile to show off to your friends.
A cosmetic dental surgeon specialized in dental gum issues. Therefore, if you feel that you have a gummy smile, alternatively, you have long teeth, book an appointment with a periodontist.
Some people feel that their teeth look too short and when they smile, a lot of gum shows up instead of white choppers. In such cases, a person can seek dental crown lengthening to make the teeth stand more than the gum.
Similarly, for a smile that shows more teeth than gum, a periodontist can help make the smile better. Teeth that appear long, or that have their roots exposed are because of periodontal disease. They make you look older than you are, but with gumraft surgery, as well as other root coverage corrective procedures, the condition is reversible.
Similarly, the two types of dental plastic surgery can help you with indentations in the gum and jawbone. Indentation in either of these areas can lead to tooth loss since indentations lead to recessions in the jawbone and gum.
So indentation gives you an unnatural looking dental structure, which if left unattended can make any residual teeth replacement look longer than the other teeth.
With corrective endodontics and periodontal plastic surgery, the dentist can recapture the natural shape of the gum and jaw. This then allows for the replacement of lost teeth, and the replacement look perfectly at home and is easy to clean, unlike when the jawbone and gum are left untreated.
These are just a few of the corrective procedures a cosmetic dentist does. Other procedures can rectify just about any dental problem you may be facing.
