Gummy Smile

Do you feel your teeth look too short and your smile is too gummy or your gums cover too much of some teeth while leaving the others the right length? If so, then we can help.

Although your teeth appear short, they may actually be the proper length but the teeth may be covered by too much gum tissue. We can correct this by performing the periodontal plastic surgery procedure called, 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. Your gum line is sculpted to give your new smile just the right look. Read Your Gums and Your Smile for more information.
