Cosmetic Gum Treatment in San Antonio
Correct a Gummy Smile or an Uneven Gum Line
When the gums cover too much of the teeth, the teeth can look unnaturally short and give you a “gummy smile.” Many times the gum line is uneven, causing your smile to look lopsided and making your teeth look like they are different shapes.
Dr. Daniela can fix a gummy smile or correct your gum line so it is more even and aesthetic.
Fixing a Gummy Smile
People with a “gummy smile” often are embarrassed about their appearance and either hide their smile or refuse to smile at all. Gummy smiles are the result of too much gum and bone tissue covering the crowns of the teeth.
Dr. Daniela corrects gummy smiles by removing the excess gum and bone tissue and exposing the proper amount of the tooth crown, resulting in an aesthetic and natural-looking smile.
Cosmetic Gum Recontouring
Your teeth can be perfectly straight, white and healthy, yet an uneven gum line around your teeth can still damage your smile by making it look odd-shaped. Dr. Daniela corrects this by gently recontouring the gum line around your teeth so the teeth will appear more even and enhance the aesthetics of your smile.
