Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment: Goodbye, Gummy Smiles!
Date: May 7, 2013 Richard Jones

A gummy smile is one that shows more of the gum tissue than what looks normal and healthy. When more of the gums show when you open your mouth or when you smile, your teeth in turn look abnormally small and unhealthy – making your entire smile look unattractive as a result. Although a gummy smile may not present a serious dental problem, it can have a significant effect on your smile, as well as your confidence.

Now, there is a way to improve the appearance of your smile so that less of your gums, and more of your brilliant white teeth, can be seen by other people. There is no need for you to simply endure the embarrassment of flashing a gummy smile!

Read on to know how cosmetic dentistry can give you fabulous-looking smiles, without showing too much of your gums at the same time.
Cosmetic Dentistry Help for a Gummy Smile


The gums can be reshaped and/or resized as needed, so that they look completely proportional to the size of your teeth; this process will result to a healthier-looking smile that features not just the majority of your gums. You can discuss with your dentist to help determine the amount of gum tissue that needs to be reshaped or reduced, in order to give you a smile that looks more normal (and healthier) in appearance.

A laser gum contouring procedure is used in cosmetic dentistry to safely and effectively change the shape, or the size, of the gums to achieve a better-looking smile. The gum contouring by laser exposes more of the teeth, so they are more prominently displayed every time you smile.
