Cosmetic Gum Shaping

Cosmetic Gum Shaping

Atsalis Dental Excellence offers cosmetic gum shaping in Plymouth, MI. This treatment can be used for any patient who wants to reshape the gum line of their smile for a more pleasant appearance. Call our dental office at (734) 453-1190 today to learn more about this cosmetic treatment and schedule an appointment with our dentist.

Cosmetic gum surgery, which is also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may recommend cosmetic gum surgery. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. Cosmetic gum surgery usually requires just one visit to our office.

If you have a gummy smile or your gumline appears uneven or asymmetrical, cosmetic gum surgery may be a good choice for improving your appearance. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum surgery is right for your smile. Call us today to learn more and schedule your individual consultation!
