Are You Hiding a Gummy Smile?

Some people have an excessive volume of soft tissue that actually covers up parts of their teeth, resulting in a less aesthetically pleasing smile called a gummy smile. We can correct this aesthetic issue with periodontal plastic surgery. Dr. Mark Khaimov uses specially developed techniques to achieve amazing aesthetic results to help our patients improve their smile.

Crown lengthening takes approximately one hour but will largely depend on the amount of teeth involved and if any amount of bone will need to be removed. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthetic and involves a series of small incisions around the tissue to separate the gums from the teeth. Even if only one tooth requires the procedure, it will probably be necessary to adjust the surrounding teeth to enable a more even reshaping. In some cases, extraction of a small amount of bone will be necessary as well.

We can't wait to give you a healthier smile.
