Dr. Kaufman specializes in various cosmetic periodontal procedures. Among the most common procedures he performs is cosmetic crown lengthening. The gums are cosmetically reshaped to make short teeth appear longer and to eliminate a “gummy” smile. Dr. Kaufman works in concert with restorative dentists. He sets the stage for the proper design of the gingiva, so that restorations like porcelain veneers or crowns can look their best. In the pictures below, one sees beautifully restored smiles when Dr. Kaufman and cosmetic dentists work in harmony with one another. After cosmetic periodontal reshaping was completed, the teeth were restored with porcelain veneers or crowns.
