Gum Reshaping Procedures Can Improve Your Smile
If you have excess gum tissue showing when you smile (a “gummy smile”) or have a case of gingival hyperplasia, you may be a good candidate for a gum reshaping procedure. Gingival procedures can offer both esthetic and functional benefits to the patient. Dr. Ann Astolfi has extensive experience performing periodontal plastic surgery on patients who may need a gum lift and have excess gum tissue removed.
How Esthetic Crown Lengthening Works
An esthetic crown lengthening procedure is designed to treat a gummy smile. If you have excess gum tissue that makes your teeth appear shorter and your gums show when you smile, you may be good candidate for this procedure. Dr. Astolfi will trim away excess gum tissue and reshape the gum line to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Benefits of esthetic crown lengthening include an improved appearance and greater ability to maintain proper home care.
