If you are a regular visitor to The Yuma Dentist blog, you have probably read articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen.
Our 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 becoming the gold standard for dental patients who want to restore missing teeth.
What if your cosmetic dental issue has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many 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, we 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.
