Get a Smile Makeover with Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery!

Are you unhappy with your smile because you feel like your teeth are small or disproportionate? If so, it may not actually be your teeth’s fault. You may have a “gummy” smile because of excess gum tissue and not because your teeth are too small. While you may not realize it, the amount and shape of your gum tissue has a significant part to play in the appearance of your smile. So if you are interested in a smile makeover and are finally ready to flash a Hollywood-worthy grin, you should consider cosmetic periodontal surgery.

“But can you really have a smile makeover with cosmetic periodontal surgery? Does my gumline really make that much of a difference in my smile?”

In short, the answer is “yes”. In fact, take a look at an example below of how excess gum tissue can impact the appearance of your smile.

Now look at the difference that a simple esthetic crown lengthening procedure made in this woman’s smile.

What a difference!

Oftentimes when people think of smile makeovers and cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers are the first thought that come to mind. But in reality, if you are looking for a more “toothy smile” (think: Julia Roberts), then your teeth may actually be perfectly sufficient both in shape and size to accomplish that look. Excess gum tissue may simply be covering the your natural tooth, making the tooth appear unnaturally short and square. A periodontal plastic surgery procedure called crown lengthening can correct and transform a “gummy” smile.

During this procedure at his Dallas periodontal practice, Dr. Charles Orth, board-certified periodontist and dental implant specialist, can reshape excess gum as well as bone tissue in order to expose more of your natural tooth (or crown) and also improve the curvature of the gumline around the tooth. If your teeth appear to have uneven shapes, esthetic crown lengthening can also be used to give more symmetry to your smile by shaping the gum in order to make your teeth appear more proportionate to one another. Esthetic crown lengthening can also be performed on a single tooth or the entire mouth.
