Having a strong and long-lasting dental restoration is important, but so is making sure it doesn’t become noticeable in your smile. Ironically, dental restorations are the one type of artistry that you don’t want to be recognizable, which is why we utilize zirconia and Emax materials to create fillings, crowns and other restorations. Once we’ve custom-shaded your metal-free restorations to your liking, we’ll make sure they are placed for optimal comfort and longevity.
Having what some patients refer to as a “gummy smile” is not necessarily bad for your oral health, but it can become intrusive in certain situations. If you have excessive gum tissue covering your smile or you need to have a restoration placed but cannot due to this gum tissue, our dental office can use a soft tissue laser to remove this tissue gently, yet precisely. The process usually takes just one appointment and requires little to no local anesthetic.
