If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at Staten Island Dental Care, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures. Dr. Fred Hecht is a master of smile makeovers.
Dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen.
Our Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Bayonne 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 NYC among dental patients who want to restore missing teeth.
What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Are you one of the many NYC 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 Staten Island 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.
For more information about gum contouring, call us at (347) 695-4370.
