Periodontal Treatment

Patients who have experienced gum recession as a result of gum disease or other factors often require periodontal plastic surgery to extend the life of their teeth. Our dentist may perform this surgery to restore gum tissue, thereby improving the health and beauty of your smile. Periodontal plastic surgery can also be used to remove excess gum tissue or to eliminate diseased tissue. If you feel that receiving periodontal plastic surgery in Germantown, Maryland, is right for you, please contact Potomac Dental  at 301-983-2165 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Fridoun

Crown lengthening is a gum treatment that has both functional and aesthetic purposes. We may recommend crown lengthening if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may suggest crown lengthening. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. This usually requires just one visit to our office.

We may also recommend crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental treatment possible. If the tooth is broken below or very close to the gum line, or if insufficient tooth structure is left for a restoration, our dentist may use crown lengthening to expose more of the tooth so a restoration like a crown or bridge can be placed.

To learn more about the uses and benefits of crown lengthening, we welcome you to contact our office today.
