As a Diamond Bar oral surgeon, we can perform many cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. When people look at you, your smile is often the first thing they see, so if you are missing several teeth or you have a gummy smile, it is highly likely that you are not portraying yourself in the best possible light. As a 91765 oral surgeon, we give you the ability to do so. At Diamond Dental Care, we encourage you to visit our office to discuss what you do not like about your smile and appearance so we can then make recommendations on the best way to correct them. You can call (909) 860-7579 to schedule your consultation today.

Two of our more common cosmetic procedures are dental implants and crown lengthening.

Dental Implants

If you live in the 91765 area and have lost some or most of your teeth, we encourage you to visit our office to learn more about dental implants. This is by far the most secure and durable way to replace your teeth because we can replace not only your physical teeth but also the roots that used to hold them in place. Each implant is essentially a synthetic root. To perform this procedure, we implant small titanium posts under the gum line and secure them to your jawbone. Over time and through the process of osseointegration, your bone and implants will fuse together. This creates a durable root for each of your new teeth to be adhered to. As a result, your jaw will benefit from natural stimulation when you chew, and your new synthetic teeth will have the same level of security that your natural ones have. It is important for you to visit an oral surgeon for this procedure simply because this is indeed an oral surgery and the skill of the dentist performing the procedure can significantly influence its success rate.

Crown Lengthening

If you have a gummy smile, you can benefit from a crown lengthening procedure. As an oral surgeon, we're able to remove some of the excess gum tissue making your gum to teeth ratio unattractive. Your gums are a critical component of your oral health. They serve a purpose by protecting your teeth and roots and holding them securely in place. However, if your gums are too large and they cover too much of the structure of your teeth, your smile will appear gummy and therefore unattractive. Many of our Diamond Bar, CA patients do not like how they look because of their gummy smile. Previously, this may have seemed like an insurmountable challenge and one that could not be addressed by dentistry. However, as an oral surgeon, we have the skills and training necessary to perform a crown lengthening procedure to give you a beautiful smile by exposing more of your teeth.

The Process

At Diamond Dental Care, we will conduct a thorough examination and take x-rays before making a recommendation as to the type of oral surgery that would be most beneficial for you. All our treatment plants are fully customized, and we will take into consideration any concerns or requests you may have. Prior to your surgery, we will ensure that you are in good health for the procedure, and then on the day of it, you will come in for a quick exam and then we will give you anesthesia. As a Diamond Bar, CA oral surgeon, we can make sure that you are fully sedated and comfortable during the procedure whether you are having dental implants placed or you are having your gums worked on. We will also provide you with information regarding what the recovery will be like and ensure that you heal properly and quickly so you can begin to enjoy the many benefits of your improved smile.

To learn more about our solutions, call (909) 860-7579 and schedule an appointment.
