Gum Lifts for a Gummy Smile

gummy-smile.jpgExcessively gummy smiles are considered to be unattractive by some patients, and the cosmetic dentistry professionals at Dental Associates can help you create the appearance of longer teeth.

To correct an excessively gummy smile, our dental team will perform a gum surgery similar to surgeries used to treat gum disease, but will tailor it to offset a gummy smile. The procedure, also called "crown lengthening," reshapes the gums to uncover a more brilliant smile hiding underneath gums and bring balance to your smile.

Gum lifts can also help your mouth to be healthier, as teeth will be easier to clean and may be less prone to gum disease.
