Do you feel as though you have a “gummy” smile? Vegas patients of Dr. David J. Trylovich, Dr. Ryan S. Gifford, Dr. Brian P. Mantor, and Dr. Gary D. Goaslind often complain of this kind of appearance concern, whereby the gums seem to have grown too far onto the exposed part of the tooth.
Unlike gum recession, the gums in this case are too prominent, leading to their being very apparent every time the mouth opens. They can also be bothersome, as they may make brushing and flossing more difficult.
There is, however, an excellent and permanent way to solve this concern: esthetic crown lengthening in Las Vegas.
What Is the Process for Esthetic Crown Lengthening?
Esthetic crown lengthening takes place using a local anesthetic and involves making incisions in the gum tissues. We will then contour the gums, shaping them as needed to make the teeth appear more natural. At times, we may also need to take away some bone tissue, especially if the tooth in question has been damaged and a crown or other restoration must be added.
After this type of surgery to address a “gummy” smile, we will suture the treatment sites. Within a three month period, the patient will see a complete difference!
The advantages of esthetic crown lengthening are many, and include:
- Eliminating your gummy smile
- Being happier with your look
- Having healthier teeth and gums
- Avoiding the risk of periodontal disease
