Cosmetic Dentistry in Phoenix, Arizona
Transform Your Smile & Change Your Life
Are you happy with the way that your smile looks? Believe it or not, even healthy, comfortable smiles can sometimes have aesthetic problems that leave people wondering about your dental care routine. Some examples can be aggressive brushers who can develop unsightly gum recession, or teeth that are too long, short, or are chipped due to an accident. These are just a few instances when a visit to a periodontist in Phoenix, would be very beneficial.
By using proven dental technologies and carefully adjusting your teeth, Dr. Trujillo and the staff at Arizona Periodontal Group can give you the smile you've always dreamed of. Below are the cosmetic services offered by Arizona Periodontal Group.
Improving your smile through cosmetic dentistry has many health benefits.
Dental Contouring and Bonding
Do you have teeth that are too long, too short, chipped, or strangely shaped? Dental contouring and cosmetic bonding can help our clinicians to make your teeth look perfect. Dental contouring is achieved by using very fine sanding and polishing discs to gently smooth the edges of the teeth. Cosmetic bonding material is made up of durable composite resins that are designed to match the color and opacity of your teeth. After choosing the proper shade to match your teeth, the dentist applies the putty, shapes it around your tooth, and then polishes the repair. The result is a properly shaped tooth that blends in perfectly with your smile.
If you have ever been told that you had more of a “gummy” smile, you might be left wondering if there is anything you can do to remedy the situation. Fortunately, gum contouring can be used to expose more of the dental surface, letting you show off those pearly whites. Gum contouring can be performed using a state-of-the-art dental laser, which quickly and painlessly removes extra gum tissue. Gum contouring can also be used for patients who have a jagged or uneven gum line which makes their teeth look different sizes.
To help patients who are undergoing advanced dental treatment or who have dental-related anxiety, the Arizona Periodontal Group offers sedation dentistry. Dr. Trujillo is certified to perform IV sedation, inhalation conscious sedation, and orally administered sedation. Sedation dentistry is also helpful for people who have a hard time sitting still through long dental procedures, such as periodontal surgery or the placement of dental implants.
Patient health and safety is the top priority for Dr. Trujillo and Dr. Sanders. Some patients may not be eligible for some forms of sedation due to existing medical conditions or allergic reactions. If you have questions about whether or not sedation dentistry could help you during your cosmetic dental treatment, talk with our clinicians about anesthesia during your next appointment.
There is a reason that the Arizona Periodontal Group is known for providing excellent dental care. Dr. Trujillo is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, a distinction reserved for periodontists who truly go above and beyond the mandatory requirements to become a periodontist. Dr. Sanders, a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, has been recognized by multiple news organizations as one of the area's top dental specialists.
