What is Involved in Gummy Smile Treatment?
A gummy smile is a smile in which the gum tissue appears prominently, making the teeth seem small and out of proportion. Many patients with gummy smiles desperately wish they could fix their appearance and achieve a well-balanced smile. Each year, thousands of patients with gummy smiles seek help for their problem, but millions more hesitate because they are not sure what is involved in a gummy smile treatment. These patients are often pleasantly surprised to find that the remedy for their gummy smile is relatively simple and surprisingly comfortable when the procedure is conducted by Dr. Parsa Zadeh, gummy smile dentist.
The exact procedures involved in your gummy smile treatment depend on the cause or causes of your gummy smile. For many patients, the treatment is straightforward and they only require one procedure, such as an indirect or direct lip reproportioning. Other patients have more complicated cases of gummy smile and they may require multiple treatments to provide the lasting results they need.
Dr. Zadeh utilizes an arsenal of surgical and cosmetic dental treatments to fix gummy smiles. Some examples of procedures that may be involved in a patient’s gummy smile treatment include reproportioning the teeth to make them appear more prominent, a gingivectomy to trim away excess gum tissue, a procedure designed to trim the jaw bone and shorten the gum line, or repositioning the lip to prevent it from drawing back too far when you smile.
