In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry. We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.
Cosmetic dental treatments can:
Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
Improve or correct bites.
Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
Replace missing teeth.
Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!
Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST®) has revolutionized gum graft procedures. Traditionally, if patients had unaesthetic recession along their teeth paired with sensitivity or cavities, a graft would have to been done, cutting gum tissue from a different part of the mouth to cover the recession. The old soft tissue graft procedures would be painful. The new technique involves placing a small pinhole and using special instruments to loosen the gums and gently place them over the receded section of the tooth.
How can PST® benefit me?
PST® can benefit anyone with recession around their front and back teeth. There are no incision and stitching, so there is minimal post-operative sensitivity such as pain or bleeding. There is also no need to cut gum tissue from a different part of the mouth to cover the receded area.
