There are many reasons why you may be unhappy with your smile, not just because of your teeth but because of your gums too. If your smile concerns you because you reveal too much of your gums then Notley Dental Care can help.
As the name suggests a ‘gummy smile’ occurs when more of your gums show than your teeth when you smile. At Notley Dental Care gummy smiles are treated by our specialist Dr Vanessa Sousa, who can see you for a consultation to discuss your concerns and we will provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan. If you have a low or uneven gum line then we can help create the smile you have always dreamed of!
Treatment involves carefully reshaping your gum, and by doing this we can restore the natural proportions of your teeth. Gum reshaping is a quick and easy treatment, with the treated gum taking a matter of hours to heal. Smiles that require more than 2 millimeters of reshaping may require a gum lift.
To maintain your new smile we may recommend porcelain veneers to our patients after their Gum Sculpting treatment as these this porcelain covers over your existing natural tooth and prevent the gum growing back into its original shape.
