A gummy smile can make a person self-conscious about their mouth, and as a consequence, become unwilling to smile or even talk. A common reason for too much gum tissue is simply the way the teeth grew in. This causes the teeth to look shorter than they really are.
A gummy smile can be caused by several factors, including:
- Undersized teeth
- Too much gum tissue
- Over-elevation of the upper lip
In most cases, a gummy smile is treated by a standard crown lengthening procedure. In others, however, Drs. Moshrefi and Daneshmand must craft a custom treatment plan to reduce the appearance of one’s gums. Whatever the case may be, they are proficient in discovering the underlying cause and subsequently the best treatment option.
Crown Lengthening Treatment
We will remove the excess gum tissue and possibly some of the underlying bone if necessary in order to expose more of the tooth. After applying a local anesthetic, the gum is cut and contoured carefully with exacting precision using hand held and high tech power instruments. The result will be an even gum line that now shows off your teeth instead of your gums.
