Are You Unhappy With Your Gummy Smile?
Do you smile less because of it?
Your smile is one of your most important attributes. It makes you attractive to other people, it makes you warm, welcoming and friendly. It can open a conversation as well as close a business deal. It can make people feel comfortable around you, make them respond to you and get to know you. So when you aren’t happy with your gummy smile, it’s something you don’t need to ignore. It does not need to affect your confidence and self-esteem.
A gummy smile is one of those cases where an improvement can be made at an affordable cost.
The simplest treatment for a gummy smile is called gum contouring. Gum contouring can make a big difference!
Your dentist will use a special laser to trim and shape your gums. It’s a fairly straight forward process done under local anaesthetic. The laser naturally seals up the wounds it makes as the gums are cut away – there is no need for messy stitches and it has a short healing time.
If a large amount of gum contouring is required, an added surgical procedure may be required under local anaesthetic – known as crown lengthening. In this circumstance the gums and underlying bone are re-shaped, cut away from the tooth and replaced in the optimum position. Stitches are placed to hold the gums in their new positions.
However for many patients interested in improving the look of their smile, gum contouring is the solution.
Finally both these treatments can be ( but don’t have to be) combined with a little Botox for even greater results. A couple of small injections to stop overactive muscles from making you smile as high and broadly, decreases the exposure of your gums.
