Gummy Smile  (cosmetic tooth lengthening)


Periodontal procedures are available to improve the esthetics of your gum line because with a “gummy” smile your teeth appear short. Your teeth may actually be the proper length, but they are covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this we can perform a periodontal plastic procedure called crown lengthening.

During this procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth.

This can be done to more than one tooth, to even out your gum line, or to expose a natural broad smile.

This procedure can dramatically improve your smile!

If you are unhappy with the appearance of short unsightly teeth, this can be greatly improved by a combination of cosmetic periodontal procedures by Dr. Farber, his team, and cosmetic dentistry by your restorative dentist. With collaboraton of your dental team a beautiful smile can be created.
