Aesthetic Crown Lengthening (Short Teeth)
The size of the teeth is different among people, there is a balance between the white color of the enamel and the pink color of the gum, however sometimes this relationship is inverted, there is little enamel and a lot of gum. We call this situation altered passive eruption.
This causes a short and wide tooth sensation and may cause an esthetic problem for the patient.
To solve the problem, a crown lengthening is performed so that the teeth have harmony between the enamel and the gum.
Receding gums can appear at any time of life. They are characterized by higher gums on the upper teeth and lower gums on the lower teeth, causing a long tooth sensation. Platón Dental has experienced specialists who use microsurgical techniques capable of regenerating lost gums with long-term stability.
Periodontal disease causes loss of the tissue that surrounds the teeth, so if the appropriate treatments are not carried out, the teeth lose support until they fall out.
Periodontal regeneration not only recovers the bone but all the tissues surrounding the tooth, giving it greater stability.
It is performed through minimally invasive surgical techniques and the use of highly studied biological materials, resulting in an improved prognosis of the teeth.
After treating periodontitis, we must be aware of the need and importance of gum maintenance to avoid relapses. At Platón Dental we will design an individualized maintenance program for each patient to control periodontal disease as well as other aspects of oral health.
