Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring In Mt. Vernon

Cosmetic Dentistry Mt. Vernon

If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr. James D. Geren is a master of smile makeovers.

Dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen.

Our Mt. Vernon area clients with stained or dull teeth can have a sparkly white smile with teeth whitening. For ordinary cavities, there are tooth-colored fillings, inlays, and onlays.

Dental implants are gaining popularity in Mt. Vernon among dental patients who want to restore missing teeth. If your teeth are misaligned, there are a number of orthodontic options here at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry.

What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many Mt. Vernon area folks whose gums are too long, too short, or uneven? At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, we have a solution for gum problems as well. The answer is gum contouring surgery.

With gum contouring, sometimes called tissue sculpting or gum reshaping, a Mt. Vernon dentist or periodontist can improve the shape or size of your gums.

Gum reshaping is not always a cosmetic procedure. If the gums have receded to a point where the tooth root is susceptible to decay, gum surgery can restore the natural, healthy gumline and protect tooth root and bone.
