Cosmetic gum surgery, which is also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape.
To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may recommend cosmetic gum surgery. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more esthetic appearance. Cosmetic gum surgery usually requires just one visit to our office.
If you have a gummy smile, or if your gum line appears uneven or asymmetrical, cosmetic gum surgery may be a good choice for improving your appearance. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum surgery is right for your smile. Call us today to learn more and to schedule your individual consultation!
