Teeth Look Too Short? Lengthen Them!

Most people who are considering cosmetic dentistry know about cosmetic dental procedures frequently advertised in the Denver area.

This includes porcelain veneers: a custom-made, wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and cracks in teeth. Many Almeida & Bell Cosmetic, Implant & Sedation Dentistry patients get minimally invasive veneers on their top six teeth for a dramatic improvement.

Orthodontia has received a lot of attention over the past twenty years with the introduction of invisible and short-term braces. Braces are not only for ‘tweens and teenagers. Often, our adult patients choose to straighten their teeth with invisible braces and achieve unforgettable smiles.

Used for generations, porcelain crowns continue to restore decayed or damaged teeth while providing beauty, strength and natural function. Porcelain crowns are also used with industry-leading dental implants to restore missing teeth.

A lesser-known cosmetic dental procedure is teeth lengthening. If you feel that your teeth appear too short or that your smile exposes more gum than you would like (a ‘gummy smile’), you may be interested in crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth while minimizing the vertical length of exposed gum tissue.

When a gummy smile is corrected, our Lone Tree crown lengthening patients are often surprised at how it positively affects their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth that have been hidden under gum tissue their whole life.

Sometimes, dentists use the crown lengthening procedure when a tooth is fractured at the gumline. The surgery makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging helps dentists perform crown lengthening with precision. A highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure allows the cosmetic dentist to contour a gumline to the patient’s exact specifications.
