Rejuvenating Your Teeth With Dental Surgery

Rejuvenating Your Teeth

Dental surgery is designed to enhance the health and appearance of your teeth, gums and jaw joints. Our specialists are ready to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically to your goals and needs.

Dental bonding can repair minor chips, mask discolorations and close small gaps between teeth. This restorative procedure can often be combined with teeth whitening and veneers for maximum effect.

Dental surgery explained in detail can help you understand the various options available to you, so you can make informed decisions about your oral health.

1. Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent solutions to missing teeth that restore an individual’s smile and facial structure to more youthful health. After losing a tooth, bone resorption occurs which damages remaining teeth as well as changes to jawbone structure; implants act to stop further bone loss by replacing its root thereby stabilizing and stabilizing your bite.

An implant post made of titanium is surgically placed into the jaw bone, covered by gum tissue and given time to integrate with its host bone through osseointegration – this process helps ensure it provides a solid base for any future restorations that rest upon it. Sometimes the entire procedure can take just one visit while other times an initial healing period must pass before temporary restorations can be attached to an implant post.

2. Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can typically be created in just two office visits. At the initial visit, the dentist will buff and smooth the tooth surface in order to ensure a proper fit of the veneers, before applying temporary ones as temporary protection.

3. Crown Lengthening

As many patients suffer from excess gum tissue, their teeth appear short and create the “gummy smile.” To address this problem, crown lengthening involves recontouring gum tissue and bone structures to reveal more natural tooth surface area.

Preventative procedures often begin with root scaling. This helps your dentist more securely attach dental crowns. Furthermore, root scaling may also be used to treat periodontal disease when it affects the roots of teeth.

Local anesthetic is typically administered prior to surgery to provide pain-free results. While you may feel some sensitivity or slight bleeding at the surgical site, these issues should eventually resolve as the body heals itself.

4. Root Planing & Scaling

Dentists commonly employ tooth scaling and root planing, a non-invasive dental procedure designed to remove plaque, tartar, toxins and bacteria from teeth and roots without surgery. This treatment uses special tools designed specifically for this task.

Scaling involves using manual hand tools or an ultrasonic device to remove dental calculus from both surfaces of your teeth and beneath your gumline, while root planing smoothes away any rough areas on your roots that cause inflammation or prevent your gum tissue from healing properly.

Smooth root surfaces make it more difficult for bacteria to reattach themselves to the roots of your teeth and can reduce inflammation associated with periodontitis. Gum tissue heals more securely as a result, helping heal periodontitis more rapidly.

5. Teeth Whitening

With media images portraying perfect smiles everywhere from movies and television shows to print publications, many people desire whiter teeth. Professional bleaching (whitening) offers an effective solution to remove surface-level discoloration of teeth quickly and painlessly.

Tooth whitening treatments use bleaching chemicals that penetrate enamel to cause a chemical reaction that breaks apart staining compounds and dispel stains. We will first place a protective gel over your gums in order to avoid irritation before applying a product that contains up to 35 percent hydrogen peroxide gels for maximum effectiveness.

Teeth whitening can be effective against extrinsic stains, but will not work on intrinsic changes within your teeth. Staining that affects their core substance may require other procedures like bonding or veneers in order to return your natural tooth color.

6. Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes even healthy teeth need a helping hand to look their best – that’s where dental veneers come in!

This cosmetic solution covers up stains, chips, cracks and other imperfections of the teeth with an attractive facade made specifically to fit each tooth surface and securely bonded onto it.

Dental veneers can typically be created in just two office visits. At the initial visit, the dentist will buff and smooth the tooth surface in order to ensure a proper fit of the veneers, before applying temporary ones as temporary protection.

At the second appointment, the dentist resurfaces the tooth and applies permanent porcelain veneers. While veneers are stain-resistant and designed to last a lifetime, they may chip or become discolored over time; as well as not being as strong as natural teeth they require more care and attention (including brushing twice daily and flossing every day) for proper performance. Resin composite veneers may last several years with proper maintenance.
