Crown lengthening - “gummy smile” treatment

If you want to improve the way your smile looks, you will find many Tandestetik Stockholm conventional dental treatments for correcting crooked, broken, or otherwise blemished teeth. But what about your gums? What if you have a smile that you consider too “gummy”?

A gummy smile can cause your teeth to appear short. In reality, your teeth might well be the right lengths, but they are covered with excess gum tissue. The objective of the dental crown extension procedure is to reshape the excess gum and bone tissue in order to expose more of your natural teeth. This procedure can be used for one tooth or for several teeth to reveal a natural and glorious smile. 

Gummy Smile Correction Procedure

Gummy smiles are a common aesthetic complaint that can happen to people of all age groups. What is considered a beautiful smile is often characterized by a combination of facial and dental symmetry, as well as by the proportions of teeth to gum. When there is insufficient gum, teeth may appear overly pronounced. However, many people suffer from just the opposite problem. They have too much visible gingival tissue in proportion to their teeth. As a result, gummy smiles often lead to teeth that appear stubby, short, or small in relation to the dimensions of their mouth.

A gummy smile can also be caused by a variety of other factors that affect the proportion of your gums to your teeth. Thin lips, hyperactive upper lips, and an overgrowth of the lower jaw can all throw the proportions of your smile off. However, the most common cause of a gummy smile is simply an overgrowth of the gums called hyperplasia. Patients with hyperplasia have gums that grow past the usual gumline. 

Gum Contouring

Shape Up Your Gums With a Crown Lengthening Procedure.
Gum contouring is also referred to as crown lengthening, which can be completed in a single appointment. Our dental experts can contour and reshape your gums by removing excessive gum tissues to expose more of your teeth. By reshaping your gums, this will most likely give you a broader, brighter, and more attractive smile.
