Expert Correction of Gummy Smiles and Uneven Gums
If you have excess gum tissue that makes your gumline look asymmetrical or your teeth are too short, Dr. Ferrari can help. He performs expert cosmetic gum treatment, including the correction of uneven gums.
A gummy smile or uneven gumline can detract from your smile and make you self-conscious about smiling or speaking in public. Although excess gum tissue is generally viewed as a purely cosmetic issue, it also has health implications. Excess tissue makes it more difficult to keep teeth properly clean and increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Dr. Ferrari provides expert gum recontouring treatment to address these issues.
First, you will receive a detailed exam and diagnostic procedure, including a 3D scan in some cases, to find out the relative positions of your gum and bone. This enables Dr. Ferrari to determine the exact amount of tissue that needs to be removed.
Simple, Gentle Procedure
To treat a gummy smile, Dr. Ferrari carefully removes excess tissue from the gumline, lengthening the appearance of your teeth and creating a more attractive smile. Similarly, he can remove tissue that creates an uneven gumline and detracts from an otherwise aesthetic look. If necessary, for the best results, he also gently reshapes the underlying bone tissue. All types of gum recontouring treatment can be performed during a simple, gentle procedure.
