Gummy Smile?

Gummy Smile?

Many people with a gummy smile undergo crown lengthening surgery to bring proper balance and symmetry to their smile. It’s a cosmetic dentistry procedure offered at Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL.

Gum tissue and, in some cases, bone is removed to expose more of the visible part of a tooth. It is a safe procedure that does not affect healthy tooth structure.

A ‘gummy smile’ is a term used to describe a smile with teeth that appear too short because an unusual amount of bone and soft tissue hide part of the crown. But crown lengthening is not used solely for cosmetic reasons. When a tooth is injured and breaks at the gum line or if a filling or crown comes off a tooth that contains decay, crown lengthening makes additional tooth structure accessible for further restorative work. It is also used to treat some types of periodontal disease.

At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Patients from North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman also come to us for complete general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
