Full mouth rehabilitation done right!
Meet our patient JG. JG sought out Dr. Anderson and our team to “improve the look and function of [his] teeth.” The upper right central incisor, “#8” was fractured, the bite collapsed over time, and the gum was of uneven contour. In working closely with JG’s general dentist, a comprehensive plan was developed to reach the chief concern.
Dr. Anderson leveled the gum profile and placed an implant the same day she extracted #8. After ample time healing, JG’s talented general dentist completed the case with full mouth restorations to address the weaknesses in his “occlusion” or bite and an implant crown on the central incisor.
JG is delighted with his results! Not only did his appearance improve to resemble his smile 20 years ago, but his confidence also returned as a result. Most importantly, the occlusion is now stable to protect his bite from collapsing. Happy patient!

Meet our patient FD. He presents with clinically healthy teeth and no disease, however, does not like the “spacing of his teeth and difference in size of the teeth”. FD, as part of a comprehensive multi-specialty approach, was referred to Dr. Anderson to make the teeth more proportional to allow for the general dentist to have the proper foundation for esthetic crown work. Dr. Anderson diagnosed FD with “altered passive eruption” where the gum and bone did not properly contract after tooth eruption resulting in short teeth and uneven gingival architecture or “gum line”. Dr. Anderson completed the crown lengthening procedure in an hour allowing FD to return to work the same day.
Please see above for before (left) and after crown lengthening with Dr. Anderson and final crowns with his general dentist (right).

When you smile do you see short teeth and more gums than teeth?
If so, chances are your gums are covering your teeth. This is called “excessive gingival display” and is usually caused by the gum and supporting structures failing to recede after the tooth grows into your jaw.
This phenomenon, also known as “altered passive eruption”, is easy and quick to fix. If you see too much gum or short teeth ask Dr. Lauren Anderson if you may be a candidate for esthetic crown lengthening treatment.
