Gummy Smiles - Visit with your cosmetic dentist today

Most people with gummy smiles feel embarrassed in social situations as they stress over who's focusing on their large gum line.
Cosmetic dentists have made things easier. You can achieve your desired smile in a couple simple visits. Treating a gummy smile does not mean extensive surgery and lots of pain. In fact, it's one of the easiest dental flaws to treat.
When you're ready to make-over your smile, schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist to discuss your dream smile and your concerns.
Most cosmetic dentists state that when you smile, your upper lip should fall where your gum and two front teeth join.
To get a healthy, attractive smile, techniques such as lip repositioning and crown lengthening are used.

Cosmetic Dental Techniques to Treat a Gummy Smile

Repositioning your lips

As one of the techniques used to treat a gummy smile, lip repositioning is most often used with crown lengthening but can also be used on its own.
To treat, your cosmetic dentist takes out some of the tissue on the inside of your upper lip. After removal, your cosmetic dentist stitches the lip to your gums. Stitching prohibits the muscles that lift your lip from revealing an excessively large gum line.
Lip repositioning is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about 45 minutes to complete.

Pros and Cons of Lip Repositioning

- Easy

- Usually has to be done with crown lengthening
- Your cosmetic dentist can only remove a small amount of your lip

Crown Lengthening

As one of the procedure in treating a gummy smile, crown lengthening consists of gum tissue removal. While you're under anesthesia, your cosmetic dentist eliminates some of the gum tissue. This removal lengthens your teeth.
Usually done in just one visit, crown lengthening only requires about two hours to complete.
With advanced technologies and higher training, treating gummy smiles has never been easier. Consult your cosmetic dentist and discuss your treatment options.

Pros and Cons of Crown Lengthening

- If the procedure shows the root of your tooth, you may have to get veneers.
