Gummy Smiles - Cosmetic dentistry solutions for a gummy smile to make you relax and smile more
Some people's smiles look unattractive because of the excessive amounts of gum that is shown above the top teeth when smiling. This condition can lead to people feeling very self-conscious about their smile and cause a tendency for many to avoid smiling naturally on photographs.
Treatment alternatives include gum contouring or gum lift, orthodontics or using pink porcelain. Gum contouring (gum lift) is a technique that involves the removal of excessive gum to create the correct length to width ratio of the teeth and re-establish the correct smile line, with the top lip resting at or near the gum margin of the teeth when you smile.
What our patients say
After years of nothing but gums when I spoke or smiled, I decided to look at possible treatments to overcome what was a great problem to me. My initial consultation talked through procedures I could have to fix this, it was very thorough and I know I choose the right option. As daunting as it may seem especially for somebody like me that hates dentists even for checkups, the team made me feel assured and I left my trust in them which proved to be more than worthwhile for the finished results. I will return back to CADY for any future cosmetic dentistry as I know I will get great results in an environment that makes me feel safe! - Mrs G Patele
