Cosmetic Treatment in Houston

Crown lengthening

Crown lengthening can improve the health of gum tissue or prepare the mouth for restorative or cosmetic procedures. In addition, crown lengthening procedures can be used to correct a gummy smile, where teeth are covered by excess gum tissue. Crown lengthening exposes more of the natural tooth by reshaping or recontouring bone and gum tissue. This treatment can be performed on a single tooth, many teeth or the entire gum line, to expose a more pleasant, esthetically pleasing smile.

Laser dentistry

Laser dentistry or dental laser surgery techniques are especially welcomed by patients who are anxious and uneasy about their dental visits. Laser dentistry can make visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible by eliminating the pain and discomfort long associated with traditional periodontal disease treatment, such as gum grafting and gum surgery.

Lip repositioning

Lip repositioning is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate what's commonly known as a "gummy smile" meaning that too much gum tissue is exposed when a person smiles. Periodontists call this "excessive gingival display." Gummy smile affects about 10% of adults between the ages of 20 and 35 and is caused by factors such as excess gum tissue covering the teeth, excess upper jaw bone, a short upper lip or an upper lip that retracts too much when they smile.

BOTOX Cosmetic for TMD/TMJ

BOTOX Cosmetic is an effective alternative treatment for TMD/TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, jaw tension and pain. BOTOX Cosmetic can also eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding and can even minimize the condition known as lockjaw. The TMJ is located on both sides of the head at the point where the jawbone meets the skull. The TMJ facilitates talking, eating, swallowing and other daily activities. If this joint becomes displaced or strained by excessive teeth grinding, a person may suffer severe tension headaches and sharp jaw pain. BOTOX Cosmetic relieves this by relaxing the muscles and the often unconscious movement that leads to headaches and pain.
