Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring In Carlsbad

Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring In Carlsbad

If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at La Costa Dental Excellence, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth is a master of smile makeovers.

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

Our San Marcos CA, Escondido, and Oceanside patients 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 Encinitas among dental patients who want to restore missing teeth. If your teeth are misaligned, there are a number of orthodontic options here at La Costa Dental Excellence in Carlsbad.

What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many Encinitas residents whose gums are too long, too short, or uneven? There is a solution for gum problems as well. The answer is gum contouring surgery.

With gum contouring, sometimes called tissue sculpting or gum reshaping, a Carlsbad 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.
