When you look in the mirror, do you like the smile you see? The flaws and strengths of your smile may be subjective, but if there are things about yours you don’t like, such as a gummy smile, we can fix it with cosmetic dentistry at Alaska Premier Dental Group.
The shape and size of your gumline can make your teeth appear too large or too small, or otherwise out of proportion. Gum contouring can correct gums that appear too low or too high in relation to the teeth, and customize them for the perfect smile.
Determining just what it is that makes a smile appear too gummy is more complicated than you might think. Your smile is the sum of its parts: the proportions of not only the gums themselves, but the teeth and upper jaw, and even the lips.
In most cases, bringing the proportion of visible gum into harmony with the teeth is enough to make a difference. When excessive gum tissue obscures some of the teeth, a technique called crown lengthening can correct it.
If a gummy smile makes you self-conscious, cosmetic dentistry from Alaska Premier Dental Group can help. Please give us a call and we’ll diagnose exactly what’s happening with your smile. Other services include complete general dentistry. Patients call us from Anchorage, Wasilla, Eagle River, and throughout the area. Schedule an appointment today!
