A gummy smile refers to a smile that shows an excessive amount of gum tissue, which results in smaller-looking teeth. Some patients choose to correct their gummy smile for cosmetic reasons.To correct a gummy smile, a periodontist (gums specialist) or oral surgeon will perform a gum lift procedure, also known as crown lengthening. A gum lift procedure raises a patient’s gum line. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue and underlying bones to create the appearance of longer and more symmetrical teeth.www.emeralddental.inEmeraldDental #Smileprotector #smiledesigning #Teethwhiteing #periodontist #periodontal #DentalAnatomy ##gummysmile Previous Post WHAT IS AN ODONTOMA?
