Most people who think about improvng their smiles with cosmetic dentistry are aware of theĀ  procedures available to them, like those offered at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin.

There are porcelain veneers: a custom made wafer-thin covering permanently attached to the front of a tooth to make it stain-free and perfectly shaped. Veneers can repair small chips and crack in teeth that are free of decay.

Porcelain crowns have been around for generations but continue to restore decayed or damaged teeth while providing beauty, strength and natural function. Porcelain crowns are also used with state-of-the art dental implants to restore missing teeth.

A lesser-known procedure is crown lengthening. If you feel that your teeth appear too short or that your smile exposes more gum than you would like (a ‘gummy smile’), you may be interested in crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth while minimizing the vertical length of exposed gum tissue.
