Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014
Beverly Hills periodontist, Dr. Sharyar Baradaran, is now offering crown lengthening. Crown lengthening is a procedure with functional, restorative and cosmetic benefits. Patients who have gummy smiles, decay below the gum line or severely damaged teeth may benefit from crown lengthening procedures.
The crown is the part of the tooth that extends above the gum line. During a crown lengthening procedure, Dr. Sharyar Baradaran, Beverly Hills bone grafting expert, removes some of the gum tissue and, in some cases, the bone around the tooth to expose more of the tooth’s natural crown. If there is decay below the gum line, this tissue will also be removed. More of the tooth will be exposed and can provide greater tooth structure to support a new restoration.
After the crown lengthening procedure, more of the tooth will be exposed, and the permanent restoration, which is often a porcelain crown, can be placed. The tooth may also be restored if it has suffered from decay below the gum line. If the crown lengthening was performed to address cosmetic concerns such as a gummy smile, patients may choose other cosmetic procedures along with the crown lengthening for a complete smile makeover.
Dr. Baradaran is a top periodontist and expert in gum grafting in Beverly Hills who offers comprehensive periodontal therapies. Gum disease is the top cause of tooth loss after 35 and affects more than half of all adults. This chronic infection has been linked with serious health problems, including heart disease and diabetes. Controlling it with the right periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing, pocket reduction surgery and tissue regeneration can help minimize the damage and restore gum health. A variety of periodontal procedures is available and can be appropriate for treating the different stages of periodontal disease.
After completing dental school, Dr. Baradaran completed an additional three years of surgical training and specialized in periodontics and implantology. He is committed to providing patients with the care they need and offers a wide range of treatments to meet his patients’ needs. He works closely with patients, referring dentists and insurance companies to help patients maximize their benefits, and his entire team is dedicated to patient satisfaction.
