Pink, healthy gums are a key part to overall good dental health. But that doesn’t mean it’s not embarrassing to have a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is when your smile reveals too much of your gums, and not enough teeth says Woking cosmetic dentist Dr Salimi.
The problem is most often genetic. However, certain medical conditions and even old age can cause your gums to drop down (or rise up) and cover a large amount of your teeth.
The gum treatment we use involves quiet and painless dental lasers . Our expertly trained cosmetic dentist guides the laser across the problem areas. The laser removes excess gum, and re-contours the gum line. You are left with a smile that is more tooth/gum proportional in appearance.
The procedure is painless, quick, and easy. Most patients spend the time watching movies while the dentist performs the procedure.
The end results typically last a lifetime. If you’re self-conscious about your “gummy smile,” We’ll have you smiling again in no time. Additionally, “gummy smiles” increase your risk of oral infections and disease. Decrease that risk by having your gums re-contoured. Improve your smile, improve your health, and improve your life.
