Everyone knows what gummy smiles look like. Sometimes the teeth appear small in comparison to the gum tissue. And an uneven gum line can distract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Many people overcompensate for their gummy smile by covering their teeth or trying to keep their lips in an unnatural position.
How Do You Treat Gummy Smiles?
With aesthetic crown lengthening, the gum line and the bone beneath the gum line, can be adjusted to change the way your smile looks. This cosmetic gum sculpting technique can be used to make teeth look longer or make the gum line more even. With gingival contouring, only the gum is corrected. And in certain situations, a laser can be used for minor sculpting.
We have found that our patients love the results because they are immediate. Your smile really can be natural again.
