People of all ages become disenchanted with the way their smiles look. For some, it may be an issue of how straight their teeth are. Or maybe their teeth need whitening to look brighter. Issues like these are fairly common. What can someone do when they see how much gum tissue they’re showing every time they smile? An issue like this can greatly affect the way your smile looks and inhibit you from smiling often. You may not be aware that there are treatments available that can correct this for you. Of all the treatments you can learn about, you will find that the best treatment for a gummy smile in Los Angeles can be found at our facility at The Total Smile.
Typical Smile Treatment Methods
There are several typical treatment methods used by cosmetic dentists and periodontists to address your gummy smile. In some cases, doctors use lasers to cut away the excess gum tissue. They may also use a scalpel to perform the procedure. This procedure can lead to a painful recovery time for you, and it is not always effective, meaning you may have to have the treatment repeated just months later. Crown lengthening surgery is also available to trim the gums and bone to make your teeth look longer. In some cases, orthognathic surgery, where the upper jaw is broken and bone removed, is used to get results. These surgical methods are costly, uncomfortable and have risks and complications associated with them.
