5. Chao Pinhole Surgical
Receding gums offer an uncomfortable feeling. They can also make you feel unattractive when you smile. When gums recede, the root of your tooth shows. This makes your teeth look awkward as the root color is darker than enamel. They can make your straight teeth look crooked, and cause tooth sensitivity.
What causes gums to recede? See some examples listed below:
- Overbrushing, or brushing and flossing too hard
- Gum disease
- Tobacco use
- Tongue, cheek, or lip piercings
- Bruxism (grinding/clenching)
- Exposure to stomach acid from vomiting or GERD
The good news is, your cosmetic dentist in Las Vegas can help with this through the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. This procedure takes your current gum tissues and repositions them to cover your tooth roots.
This treatment offers the following benefits:
- Only one small incision the size of a pinhole
- Faster recovery
- No stitches
- More attractive results
At the end of the day, there’s a cosmetic dental treatment for any smile issue you may have. You can choose one to address multiple imperfections or more than one treatment for a complete smile makeover!
