Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Cosmetic Gum SurgeryA healthy smile requires good dental hygiene and routine dental care, but an attractive smile may require going the extra mile. Cosmetic gum surgery is one option that can help you sculpt and design the smile of your dreams. Our Phoenix cosmetic gum surgery expert can help you decide if cosmetic gum surgery is right for you.

Gummy smiles are those that reveal an excess of gum tissue. This can be due to abnormal eruption, hyperactive lip muscles, abnormal jaw development or a combination of issues. Our expert in cosmetic gum surgery in Phoenix can evaluate your teeth, gums and jaw and determine the underlying cause of your gummy smile. Minimally invasive gum surgeries can contour the gums to reveal more of your natural teeth or adjust the lip line so that the upper lip is unable to pull back too far.

The opposite of gummy smiles, a long tooth smile is one that shows too much tooth. It can occur as a result of a receding gum line. Gums most commonly recede as a result of untreated gum disease or dental trauma, such as bruxism or aggressive brushing techniques. Correcting these issues can help reduce the risk of further damage, but our Phoenix cosmetic gum surgery expert may also recommend transplants, which use donor tissue to restore lost gums and create a more pleasing smile.

You can get the most out of your cosmetic gum surgery by following good dental hygiene practices before and after the procedure. Use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste to brush at least twice a day. Floss daily or use an interdental cleaner to get between teeth and clean along the gum line. Use all medications exactly as prescribed. Regular checkups with our expert in cosmetic gum surgery in Phoenix can protect your gum health and keep your smile looking and feeling its best.
