Gummy Smile Enhancement


Gummy smile enhancement is a procedure used to improve a “gummy smile”, which occurs when a tooth or many teeth appear too short. Teeth may actually be the proper length, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, a crown lengthening procedure is complete. During this procedure, excess gum tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth to even up the gum line, or to several teeth to expose a natural, broad smile. When indicated, a laser can be used for this procedure, which eliminates the need for sutures.
