Cosmetic Dentistry and Your Gums:

Short and uneven gumline

Laser used to shape the gumline, then porcelain veneers placed

There are numerous article about Cosmetic Dentistry and all the ways to whiten your teeth.  The use of whitening teeth or bleaching, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers are all some modalities that can be used.   The interesting thing is that the gums are often overlooked.  This is not speaking from a health standpoint, but from the point that your gums are like the “frame” on a picture.  Uneven gumlines, unsymmetrical smiles due to gum height, too much gum tissue exposed can all have  a dramatic effect on the end result.  If you have gummy smiles and would like to whiten your teeth, often, the high tech diode laser can be used to correct the gummy smile then you can whiten your teeth.    The wonderful thing is that  dentists have access to a wonderful technology.  This allows Houston Cosmetic Dentists to artistically  reshape, recontour and even raise the gumline without pain or anesthesia.  It is my favorite tech tool in the office and is used on almost all patients.   It is truly a high tech Dental tool that every dentist and Houston Cosmetic Dentist should have.     If you have any questions about Houston Cosmetic Dentistry or Houston Porcelain Veneers, please call our office at 713-668-2289, a Houston Dentist, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF
