As part of a Smile Makeover, we have several options to eliminate the appearance of a “Gummy Smile.”
What Is A Gummy Smile?
A very common symptom of a gummy smile is the growth of excessive gum tissue over the teeth. This causes the teeth to look too short and boxy and results in what is often called a “Gummy Smile.” As part of a Smile Makeover, Dr.Miski,as Gum Specialist, offers a variety of solutions that will eliminate the appearance of a “Gummy Smile.”
Using a Diode Laser, we can gently and permanently remove the excess gum tissue that is hiding the top of the teeth.
This is often done in conjunction with making the all-porcelain veneersthat are used slightly longer than the natural teeth.
Also known as Aesthetic Crown Lengthening and serves to make your teeth more proportional to the perfect smile. Finally, some patients have a naturally over-active upper lip that moves up too high when they smile. This exposes the gum tissue to view and is often not considered optimal.
