Cosmetic Dentistry

 

Investing in the aesthetics of your smile is one of the most important things you can do. In a world where plastic surgery and physical appearance takes center stage, why not make sure your teeth, and gums are looking their best? The Visalia cosmetic dentists, at ABC Dental Group offer the best cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

At ABC Dental Group, we offer dental implant restorations, veneers, composite fillings (tooth colored), dental crowns, bridges, veneers, Invisalign, and minor oral surgery used to fix gummy smiles such as lip repositioning, gum reshaping, and much more.

“Changing a patient’s smile will change their life,” says one of the practice’s Visalia cosmetic dentists, Dr. Myint.

Cosmetic procedures we use to fix Gummy Smiles are:

     • Lip repositioning: 1-2 millimeters of our gums normally show when we smile but for some people, 5-6 millimeters show. This means that we need to make the upper lip sit lower over the gums (aka, perform a lip repositioning procedure). During a lip repositioning procedure, our cosmetic dentist removes a small amount of tissue inside and under the upper lip which inhibits the ability of the upper lip to rise as high so lips frame the teeth without showing so much gums (reducing gingival display).

     • Gum reshaping (crown lengthening): The crown refers to the visible part of the tooth. A cosmetic dentist can trim the gums to expose more of the tooth. The outcome of this is a less gummy, more aesthetically pleasing smile. In the same way, the crown lengthening procedure can be used to rid the gums and teeth of deep decay causing bloody and/or swollen gums.
