NEW LONDON, Conn., June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The highly regarded periodontal team of Drs. Gregory
Crown lengthening enables a trained, credentialed periodontist to expertly trim away gum tissue, or gingiva, that has grown and covers a significant portion of the tooth. Drs. Toback and Urbanski utilize laser-based equipment to precisely remove soft tissue without damaging the surrounding area and offering reduced recovery times. The results of crown lengthening are both immediate and permanent.
Although excessive gum tissue is frequently a cosmetic concern among adults seeking to rid themselves of a gummy smile in New London and surrounding areas, the situation can become functionally problematic if the gums become inflamed or diseased. In cases where the patient already has issues such as gum disease, a gummy smile could exacerbate the problem by making it difficult to keep the periodontal pockets and teeth free from bacteria, plaque and tartar.
In addition to offering crown lengthening as both a cosmetic and functional option for new and existing Shoreline Periodontics patients, Drs. Toback and Urbanski offer a variety of specialty services including gum disease treatment, dental implants and sedation dentistry. In order to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements in dentistry and ensure their community does the same, they consistently attend continuing education courses and lead study clubs among their peers.
Those interested in meeting with either of the periodontists about a gummy smile in New London, CT, are encouraged to call the Shoreline Periodontics practice at 860-443-2428 or call 401-596-0000 for their Westerly, RI location.
