Do you feel that you have a Gummy Smile or an Uneven Gum Line?

Periodontists are often considered the plastic surgeons of dentistry. If you are looking to improve your smile, a periodontist may be able to help.


If you feel your smile is too gummy or your gums cover too much of some teeth your periodontist can perform a procedure called dental crown lengthening. During this procedure, excess gum tissue is removed to expose more of the crown of the tooth. Then your gumline is sculpted to give your new smile just the right look.


If you have questions about crown lengthening or any other procedure that can improve your smile or your oral health be sure to contact one of our periodontal professionals.
