Looking to spruce up your smile this holiday season? If you feel embarrassed by the way your teeth look or hesitate to smile in public, it’s worth it to invest in your oral health and self-confidence. Our cosmetic dentist in The Woodlands offers dramatic aesthetic services to help your teeth look and feel their very best. Here are just a few examples:
Gummy Smile Treatment
Do you have a “gummy” smile? When you take photos or smile in the mirror, do you tend to see more gum tissue than teeth, or do your teeth look shorter than they should? It may not be an issue with your teeth at all, but rather the soft tissues that frame them.
When gingival (gum) tissue is too high, it can cover parts of teeth that are typically exposed when you’re smiling. This scenario can create the illusion of short or uneven teeth. By adjusting the gumlines, Dr. Saunders can help your smile look fuller and more attractive.
Gingival Plastic Surgery
Uneven gumlines or areas of gum recession can leave tooth roots exposed and susceptible to sensitivity, cavities, and mobility. Tissue loss also creates gaps between teeth that can create dark shadows when you smile or collect food debris each time you eat.
Our specialist offers gingival plastic surgery treatments that help establish healthy and attractive tissue margins around your teeth. This can be completed via grafting, laser therapy, and other soft tissue modification techniques.
By re-covering exposed root surfaces, you both enhance your smile as well as protect the integrity of at-risk areas of your mouth.
Healthy gums are the perfect frame for your most important accessory!
Do you have missing teeth? Are there teeth that need to be removed because of aggressive decay, wear, or gum disease? If so, you can give yourself a natural-looking smile with expertly-placed dental implants.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that’s modeled after anatomical teeth. When set into the bone, they integrate with your mouth and become a permanent fixture in your smile. Depending on how many teeth you need to restore, Dr. Saunders can use implants for single, multiple, or full-mouth restorations.
Living with dental implants is like having your natural smile back all over again, except better. Well-maintained implants are stronger than healthy teeth and can be designed to your unique cosmetic preferences.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Over time, it’s normal for stain and tartar buildup to cause our teeth to look discolored. Fortunately, this residue can easily be cleaned off and polished away by your dental hygienist.
If you’re someone who usually whitens your teeth, touching up after your dental cleaning is a great idea. That way the whitening gel can come into full contact with your clean tooth enamel.
