Gingival Mask for Receding Gums
Gum recession can disrupt a perfect smile. Receding gums come from physical trauma, periodontal surgery, or gum disease.
Receding gums spoil the aesthetic of a smile. They can also expose the delicate tooth roots or your current dental work.
Some patients opt for surgery or other regenerative procedures to restore their gum tissue. Other individuals are not able or do not want to endure these procedures. Fortunately, there’s an innovative option for these patients at Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.
What is a Gingival Mask?
A gingival mask is a removable artificial gum. The mask is convenient, removable, and functional. A gingival mask completely hides dental work and tooth roots. It rapidly restores a healthy-looking smile.
The gingival mask is:
- Comfortable and soft
- Flexible for easy placement and removal
- Small and portable
- FDA approved
- Made of durable surgical silicone
It isn’t difficult to obtain a gingival mask at Century City Aesthetic Dental. Come talk with Dr. Dorfman about your current smile. He can investigate your receding gums and help you decide if a gingival mask is right for you.
Dr. Dorfman will take an impression of your teeth and gums with a disposable tray. He will send the impression to the dental lab, where they will fabricate a unique gingival mask just for you.
Your gingival mask could be made of acrylic, porcelain, composite resin, or a silicone-based material. The mask will use your lip and the moisture of your mouth to stay securely in place. A gingival mask can be used as a short or long term solution for your receding gums!
You can conquer gum recession in two quick visits to Dr. Dorfman. Avoid the discomfort and cost of surgery by covering your receding gums with a gingival mask. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
