It has been said that in designing a beautiful smile, the teeth are the actors and the gums are the scenery on stage. They have to complement each other to look natural and beautiful. The following patients had combinations of treatment. Many of the cases involve crown lengthening and /or root coverage to restore the proper gingival proportions.
This patient was ready to make some changes in her life and one of them was fixing her smile. The gum tissue was raised in some areas and lowered in others to create harmonious relationships. New restorations on the teeth combineds with good gum tissue esthetics gave her this great smile.
This is the daughter of a dentist who came to Dr. Scharf. We treated the gingivitis, and removed excess gum tissue from between the teeth. Crowns replaced the old discolored bonded fillings.
Laser Gum Surgery
Many patients complain of having a gummy smile. This can occur from gum recession as a result of gum disease. In these scenarios, the patient’s gums begin to pull back or expand. In those cases, either too much of the tooth becomes exposed or too little. As a result, we can utilize a laser that will alter your gum line and restore it to an acceptable appearance.
