Treatments For A Gummy Smile
By Roger B. Parkes, DMD on September 13, 2016
At Periodontal Associates of Jackson, we can help you treat and eliminate your gummy smile. We do this by evaluating your mouth, your teeth and your gum tissue to determine the extent of your excessive gum tissue display and any potential triggers. Treatment for your gummy smile will depend on your specific health issue.
Treatment for your condition may include:
• Laser treatments.
• Surgery to reposition your lip.
• Orthodontics to move your teeth to a better location.
• Surgical sculpting of gum tissue and jaw bone.
• A gum lift.
• A “Crown-Lengthening” procedure.
After you have received treatment you should see less gum and more teeth while smiling. If you have any questions, or would like to visit us at our office in Jackson, MS please contact us today!
