Teeth Look Too Short? Lengthen Them!

Most people who are considering cosmetic dentistry know about the procedures that are available from The Addison Dentist.

There are porcelain veneers: a custom made wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and crack in teeth that are free of decay. Many people get minimally invasive veneers on their top six teeth for a dramatic improvement.

Orthodontia has received a lot of attention since the introduction of clear braces. They are not just for teenagers. We have seen more adults straighten their teeth to achieve sensational smiles with this discreet orthodontic option.

A cosmetic dental procedure that is lesser known is crown lengthening. If you feel that your teeth appear too short or that your smile exposes more gum than you would like (a ‘gummy smile’), you may be interested in crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth while minimizing the vertical length of exposed gum tissue.

When a gummy smile is corrected, our patients are often surprised at how it positively affects their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth that have been hidden under gum tissue their whole life.

If you would like to find out if crown lengthening is right for you, call The Addison Dentist. It is just one of our cosmetic dentistry services. We also offer general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
