Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Craig H. Rubinoff, DDS, MS – Poway CA

These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. Additionally, if you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Dr. Rubinoff and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.

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.

Soft Tissue Graft

Another cosmetic procedure is the Soft Tissue Graft. It is used to cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession, and protect the roots from sensitivity, decay and eventual loss.

Bone Grafting

Tooth loss causes the jawbone to recede and can lead to an unnatural looking indentation in your gums and jaw, an 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 tissue shrinkage and a more aesthetic tooth replacement for either an implant crown or fixed bridge.
