Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

Cosmetic periodontal procedures are a conventional way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of short, unsightly teeth, this can be greatly improved by a combination of periodontal procedures by Dr. Hadeed and cosmetic dentistry by your dentist.

Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length. The teeth may be covered with too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure, crown lengthening. During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue are reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to more than one tooth, to even your gum line, and to create a beautiful smile.

Another cosmetic periodontal procedure is the soft tissue graft. It is used to cover unattractive tooth roots, reduce gum recession, and protect the roots from decay and eventual loss.

Tooth loss causes the jaw bone to recede and can lead to an unnatural looking indentation in your gums and jaw, and appearance of a general aging. The original look of your mouth may not be recaptured because of spaces remaining under and between replacement teeth. They may appear too long, compared to nearby teeth.

Bone grafting following tooth loss can preserve the socket/ridge and minimize gum and bone collapse. There is less shrinkage and a more aesthetic tooth replacement for either an implant crown or fixed bridge around the replacement teeth.

Patient Testimonial

What do you get when a long suffering naturally not trusting dental patient chooses the most capable, experienced and trustworthy/kindest Periodontist around for long difficult procedures? Remarkably pain-free miraculous successes and a changed patient who actually looks forward to his next appointment. Dr. Hadeed and his ace assistant Tracie are truly the best and have made me feel like family. They are dearly loved by this patient for their expertise and many kindnesses and I would recommend their excellent care without hesitation.

Patient Testimonial

When I came to see Dr. Hadeed I was quite on the brink of desperation. Being in really bad shape, including a broken tooth, Dr. Hadeed started by explaining and designing a comprehensive plan to get back my smile. He said we'll work on this together, it will take some steps but we are going to work it together. Needless to say I was reassured from minute one. Him and his incredible assistant Tracy make such a great team that you can not feel other than a lot of gratitude and feel rewarded for having met with them. I didn't mention it but I do need several implants and a lot of work, I was consulting Dr. Hadeed about Teeth Xpress but he said: "wait a minute, we don't need to destroy what you have", I was thinking, "wow, Dr. Hadeed seems to care for me more than I care for me myself.." I would not end today if I start describing the whole surgical procedure, and all the care involved from him and from Tracy, let me just say that when Dr. Hadeed was following up with me every day for a week afterwards, checking how I was recovering, I was and I am really impressed. Dr. Hadeed is not just good, he is excellent!

Patient Testimonial

My Dr. Hadeed is the most caring, gentle, and expert that I have ever experienced. I endured absolutely no pain during the surgery and implants. I would recommend him to anyone of my family or friends as they would do well to put themselves in his expert hands. It is to his benefit and credit that he is works along side his wonderful and expert, assistant - his wife, Tracy. Together, they treat each patient as though they are their only ones - plus they make a wonderful team (like no other). hadeed

Patient Testimonial

Dr. Hadeed and his Assistant, Tracy Lee, are simply amazing... they are an exceptional team! I was in need of having a major tooth extracted with suggested bone buildup in prep for an implant after the extraction. I was referred to Dr. Hadeed and he "personally" interacted with me via phone and text messages until I personally met him the day of the surgery. He even delayed my dental work to ensure that I could enjoy my Niece's graduation celebration in South Carolina... how beautiful and caring is that!! Prior to and during the dental procedure he assured me that he would take good care of me and for me not to worry... Dr. Hadeed was true to his word and he and Tracy Lee did exactly that! Dr. Hadeed has extreme skill and abilities in addition to his genuine, caring, and personable nature! If you're in need of minor or major dental work... I recommend Dr. Hadeed to you... for real, for real! Thank you Dr. Hadeed! Evelyn W
