Which are the available cosmetic dentistry options?

Some of the main cosmetic dentistry options available at Baton Rouge Perio include:

Dental implants

Dental implants are posts that anchor artificial teeth. Your provider inserts the implants into your jawbone. After they heal, the implants serve as a sturdy support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures that replace missing permanent teeth. Should we add something about the general dentist providing the crowns, bridges or dentures? 

Crown lengthening

Crown lengthening reduces excess gum tissue to treat a gummy smile and perfect the appearance of your gumline. The treatment also makes your teeth look longer.

Cosmetic gum treatments

Baton Rouge Perio offers a variety of cosmetic gum treatments for a receding gumline. Examples include gum grafting, bone grafting to minimize gum collapse, and the pinhole surgical technique (PST™), a cutting-edge procedure that uses specialized instruments to make tiny holes in gum tissues to strengthen the gums and stabilize recession. 

Laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP®)

LANAP uses innovative laser technology to remove diseased tissues and agitate healthy connective tissues, helping them grow and tighten around your teeth to improve the health and look of your gums.

What should I expect during my treatment?

Your Baton Rouge Perio provider numbs the treatment area, if needed, before completing cosmetic dental treatments. They also offer a sedative to help you relax. Your specialist uses advanced technologies and techniques to replace missing teeth, reshape or regrow gums, or remove diseased tissues and damaged teeth. 

Afterward, it’s important to take medicines as directed. You may need to eat a soft food diet during the healing process and avoid vigorous brushing. Attend follow-up visits with your Baton Rouge Perio provider to ensure optimal results.
