What can I expect from the gummy smile correction procedure?

You may feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your appearance if you have a gummy smile. You may avoid certain social situations or places where you know your photo will be taken. However, a gummy smile doesn’t have to be hidden! Instead, the team at Claire Cho, DDS of Aliso Viejo, California, may recommend you consider the advantages of certain cosmetic treatments that help improve the balance and harmony in your smile, such as the gummy smile correction procedure available with Dr. Claire Cho and her team.

Gummy Smile Treatment in Aliso Viejo CA area

What treatment is available for a gummy smile?

A gummy smile typically results from excess gum tissue that may shorten the appearance of the natural teeth and cause an imbalance in the smile’s appearance. By removing a little of the gum tissue and exposing more of the crown of the teeth, we can help achieve a proper balance between gum tissue and a tooth for a more attractive overall appearance. Unlike gum grafting, which adds gum tissue to the gum line, gummy smile treatment removes excess gum tissue, lengthening the teeth crown and recreating a different gumline location.

Who is a good candidate for the gummy smile treatment?

Those struggling with a gummy smile may feel uneasy when at social gatherings, avoiding smiling or even talking with others. They may cover their mouth as they talk to others to hide noticeable imperfections. Patients ready to smile confidently and have a healthy smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay may be considered for the gummy smile correction procedure at our office.
