Smile enhancement procedures can address two common aesthetic concerns: teeth that appear shorter than normal and teeth that appear unusually long. Resolving these issues can improve the aesthetics of your smile and, in some cases, preserve the long-term health of your teeth.
Dr. David Anson offers smile enhancement patients in Beverly Hills over thirty years of experience in periodontal procedures. He continually adds to this expertise with professional development and research that benefits the field. General dentists, orthodontists, and patients refer others to him because his approach prioritizes comfort and attractive, effective outcomes.
If you would like to have a better balance between your gums and teeth and want to protect the long-term health of your smile, we invite you to explore Dr. David Anson’s innovative smile enhancement treatment.
Smile Enhancement and “Short” Teeth
Your gums follow the structure of the underlying bone in your mouth and jaw. When there is excess bone close to the crowns of the teeth, the gums tend to follow, covering an excessive amount of your crowns and making your teeth appear shorter than normal.
By re-contouring the underlying structures, Dr. Anson can significantly improve the aesthetics of your smile. The procedure usually results in only a minimal amount discomfort during recovery, and most of our patients experience a dramatic and welcome change in their appearance.
Smile Enhancement and “Long” Teeth
When your gums pull away from a tooth, this recession can reveal the dental root. As a result, the tooth can look longer than usual. You may also have increased sensitivity to temperature when you eat and, over time, may experience bone loss in the area of the tooth.
Dr. Anson provides smile enhancement patients in Beverly Hills with tissue sculpting and tissue grafting procedures. Both approaches can re-cover the tooth root. Because Dr. Anson is trained in advanced periodontal methods, he is often able to use less invasive techniques for a faster and more comfortable recovery.
Your Experience with Smile Enhancement
Patients in Beverly Hills begin with a visit to Dr. Anson’s offices for an initial consultation. During the appointment:
- You will have the opportunity to talk with Dr. Anson about your concerns and ask questions about his approach. He spends a significant amount of time in these visits to ensure that you have the information you need and are comfortable in his care.
- Anson will conduct a thorough examination. While you may have symptoms in one area of your mouth, your visit is an important opportunity to review your oral health in a comprehensive way.
- You will discuss your medical history, medications you may be taking, and any major health changes.
By the conclusion of your visit, you will have a full treatment plan for smile enhancement and information about related fees. The approach that Dr. Anson advises will depend on your individual needs, but regardless of which recommendation he makes, you can expect expert care and professional support at every step in the process.
