The gummy smile surgery cost can vary depending on the complexity of your needs and the amount of surgery needed to correct the problem. Our dentist will first carefully evaluate your teeth, gum tissue and bone structure to determine the best way to proceed, and then we can make recommendations. You will receive a complete price quote at your evaluation.
In the past, patients with gummy smiles often had to go through orthognathic surgery, a type of jaw surgery. This treatment was effective and continues to be used for some types of problems, but we now have far less invasive treatment options to address the various causes of a gummy smile. These options are generally more affordable and involve a shorter, easier recovery period. Some of your options may include crown lengthening, lip lowering, gum contouring, Botox or a combination of treatments. The right treatment can permanently improve your smile and your confidence. The cost could be as low as $2,000.00 to $3,000.00 and up depending on the complexity of your case.
Most patients who opt for minimally invasive procedures have little downtime and minor discomfort as they heal. Complications are rare, but patients should follow our dentist’s post-surgery instructions to further minimize the risk. Call us today to find out more or to schedule an appointment.
