Do you reveal more than the usual amount of gum tissue when you smile? You may suffer from what’s considered a gummy smile. A gummy smile can be due to a hypermobile lip, abnormal eruption, jaw abnormalities or an overgrowth of gum tissue. While these problems are not necessarily dangerous for your dental health, they can affect your overall confidence. Our Periodontist in Los Angeles can help, as we offer treatments that can correct your gummy smile and give you the look you want.

Gummy smile surgery can permanently change the look of your smile. We carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, bone structure and even facial features to determine the most attractive tooth-to-gum ratio. We will then design a treatment plan that addresses the root cause of your gummy smile and create a smile that is more flattering to you. This may include one or more procedures based on your needs.

If you are unhappy with the gummy look of your smile, you have options. Lip lowering surgery, jaw surgery, crown lengthening and other procedures can eliminate the look of extra tissue to help make your teeth look longer and more proportionate. Call us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our expert in gummy teeth in Los Angeles.
