When you think of cosmetic dentistry, you probably imagine procedures that directly impact the appearance of your teeth. However, your gums also play an important role in the health and quality of your smile. Since 1997, Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry has been providing high quality dental services to Boston-area residents at our Brookline and South Shore locations. The careful approach of our cosmetic dentists and prosthodontists has made Smileboston an industry leader excelling in patient comfort, dental technology, and innovation. One of the methods Smileboston uses to improve the health of your gums is the Pinhole Surgical Technique – a state of the art gum recession therapy. Dr. Steven D. Spitz is the only Prosthodontic Specialist certified to perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique in the New England area.
The secret to gum rejuvenation lies in the Pinhole Surgical Technique, an advanced procedure that adjusts receded gums to create a more appealing smile. The process involves a cosmetic dentist placing a pinhole above or below the receded area. The gums are then gently adjusted to their pre-recession position and strips are applied to secure the new placement. The pinhole itself only takes a day or two to heal.
While the results speak for themselves, there are other numerous benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Mainly, this method is much less invasive than traditional therapies. It leaves no scars, requires no stitches, and has a quicker healing time allowing you to smile confidently without dealing with the residual effects of a surgical procedure. Moreover, the restoration of healthy gums ultimately will save you time, money, and future discomfort.
