As a leader in the field of Periodontics, Dr. Anson has developed a reputation for his expertise in aesthetic microsurgery. He has pioneered and perfected many new techniques utilizing a surgical microscope, bringing aesthetic periodontal surgery to a higher level of precision and aesthetics.
We offer our patients a variety of aesthetic microsurgical procedures to enhance the appearance of the teeth and smile. The unique techniques that Dr. Anson has developed significantly reduce the trauma to the tissues that is common with “traditional” surgical procedures. The result is increased comfort, reduced healing time, and superior aesthetics.
One of the most common aesthetic procedures is sculpting the gum tissue to improve a “gummy” smile. This procedure involves reshaping the gum and bone tissue to expose more of the natural tooth, or lengthen it. The procedure can be performed for a single tooth to even the gum line, or for several teeth to improve the appearance of the entire smile.
Soft Tissue Grafts
Although gum recession, which exposes tooth roots, can be caused by a variety of factors, the most common cause is aggressive tooth brushing. Soft tissue grafting procedures involve adding tissue to reinforce thin gums, cover exposed tooth roots, or repair any defects in the gum tissue.
Covering the exposed roots will improve the aesthetic appearance of the smile. This procedure will also help to prevent additional recession and bone loss, solve the problem of root sensitivity to hot and cold, and protect the roots from decay.
Microsurgery allows Dr. Anson to reduce discomfort and healing time while increasing patient comfort. If you’re ready for treatment, give our office in Beverly Hills a call at (310) 657-0999.
