3 Cosmetic Procedures for a More Attractive Smile

Last updated 5 years ago

Your smile is one of the most important facial features as it is one of the first things people notice about your appearance. A straight, white smile can make you feel more confident and attractive. Here are three cosmetic procedures that you can discuss with your cosmetic dentistry provider in order to get a better-looking smile:

Gum Ridging

Augmenting the gum line can help mitigate the damage caused by gum abnormalities. This can also help keep your teeth in place, reducing the likelihood of your needing dental implants or other devices to replace lost teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will tell you if gum ridging is right for you or if you should consider having gum grafts or another restorative procedure.

Cosmetic Contouring

With this procedure, your cosmetic dentist can easily fix small problems with your teeth, giving you a more attractive smile. By shaving enamel or adding material to teeth, cosmetic contouring can correct broken, chipped, misshapen, crooked, or overlapping teeth.

Crown Lengthening

If you have a gummy smile, you would probably like to have more tooth and less gum showing when you flash your pearly whites. Crown lengthening is a procedure performed by a cosmetic dentist to make the structure of the dental crown appear longer, reducing the gummy look. The gums and even bone tissue, if necessary, are shaped to create a more attractive facade.

To have these and other cosmetic dentistry services performed, come to the office of Dr. Kenn Kakosian, DDS in Manhattan. We also offer other services to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful smile, including Invisalign and teeth whitening. To schedule an appointment and get started on the road to a more attractive smile, call (888) 775-8116 today.
