Periodontal Plastic Surgery
We are located at 3470 NE Ralph Powell Road, Suite C, Lee's Summit, MO 64064.
“My youngest son was referred to Dr. Mullins for a frenectomy following his initial orthodontist appointment. I was anxious because I did not fully understand the procedure/recovery. Dr. Mullins and her staff were so thorough in explaining the procedure step by step not only to me but to my 8-year-old son as well. She was amazing throughout the prep and procedure to make sure my son was comfortable. I would highly recommend her and will definitely return to her office for any necessary dental needs!”
We have two different procedures that may be able to help you get the smile you want and deserve:
- Esthetic Crown Lengthening: An esthetic crown lengthening procedure can correct that “gummy” smile that makes you want to hide your teeth. During a visit that will last only about an hour, our team can transform your smile by performing a “gum lift.” Our careful dentists will remove excess gum and bone tissue and reshape your smile to let more of your natural tooth shine. One to two weeks after the procedure, you will have a follow-up appointment so our experienced team can evaluate your healing progress.
- Functional Crown Lengthening: A functional crown lengthening procedure is for teeth that are too far decayed or broken below the gum line. Similarly to esthetic crown lengthening, our skilled dentists can remove gum and bone tissue to reshape your smile. After you heal for six to eight weeks, the doctor will be able to place the final restoration piece, such as a crown or bridge, to get you back your smile.
These periodontal plastic surgery procedures not only restore a smile to its natural glory but also provide the added benefit of controlling and preventing periodontal disease.
Unhappy about your smile? Schedule an appointment with the Dr. Stephanie Mullins DDS team today. We will evaluate your goals and determine if either of these two periodontal plastic surgery options are right for you. If periodontal plastic surgery is the best option for you, you will finally get the bright, beautiful smile you’ve been dreaming of.
