What Is Periodontics?
Periodontics focuses on gum health. While periodontal disease is dangerous and a leading cause of tooth loss, dentists can also perform periodontic procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Cosmetic periodontal procedures can help you build confidence in the way you look. No matter how your gums are currently shaped, we can re-contour them and give you a symmetrical, attractive appearance.
Advantages of Periodontal Treatment
Periodontal procedures can:
- Improve gum health
- Combat gum disease
- Reshape gums to enhance aesthetic qualities
- Improve fit of dental implants and other restorations
Why Choose Skoulas DDS?
As leading cosmetic dentistry experts, we provide advanced periodontal services to improve the health and aesthetics of your smile. We welcome all patients to our elegant yet comfortable office, where we will address your dental needs with care and respect.
Dr. Skoulas uses a dental laser to perform some cosmetic periodontal surgeries. The advantage of a dental laser is that it completes procedures quickly and comfortably while promoting faster healing. It also can be used as a periodontal treatment in disinfecting the gums.
Gummy Smile Repair (Gingivectomy)
Many patients feel that their gums cover too much of their teeth, giving them what is known as a "gummy" smile. Dr. Skoulas can expertly uncover the teeth and create an attractive result using minimally invasive techniques.
Gingival (Gum) Grafting
Gum grafts are commonly used to treat root exposure resulting from receded gum tissue. Tissue is removed from the roof of the mouth or from gum tissue near the tooth and stitched into the area needing gingival repair.
Aesthetic Crown Lengthening
Crown lengthening often becomes necessary when a patient needs increased natural tooth surface area to attach a crown or another restoration. However, crown lengthening can also be cosmetic. Exposing more tooth surface can give patients a more symmetrical and beautiful smile.
