Cosmetic Dentistry in Washington D.C. & Alexandria, VA
Cosmetic dentistry can easily improve self-esteem and self-confidence in just a visit or two.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about fixing aesthetics. Cosmetic dental work can transform a smile, and the life of the patient. When someone is confident in their smile, their self-esteem is increased, and their personal, professional, and social life can improve.
Gum hyperpigmentation can present a blotchy, uneven look. While not a harmful condition, many patients would prefer to have even colored gums. Gum depigmentation, or gum bleaching, can be accomplished in our office using gentle, safe lasers to treat dark areas of the gum with measured bursts of light. The result is healthy looking, pink gingiva (gum tissue) free from discoloration or blotches.
Patients with gums that extend down the front faces of the teeth often complain of a “gummy” smile. Esthetic gum contouring makes the gum line more even, exposing more of the crown of the tooth, so the teeth appear longer and straighter. The result is an even, natural looking smile.
