The answer to a “gummy smile” in Sutton

Do you feel you are showing too much gum when you smile in comparison to the amount of teeth that you show? Some causes of a so called “gummy smile” are: faulty tooth eruption; your upper lip moving higher than it should move; and jaw bone and teeth developmental anomalies. Your  Sutton dentist will perform a complete dental examination and take impressions and x-rays of your teeth and surrounding hard oral tissues. Your dentist will then evaluate your smile line, facial muscles, size and shape of your teeth, and gingival tissue configuration.
Dental treatments for a “gummy smile” are dependent upon the extent of the problem. Your dentist may refer you to the appr0priate dental specialist to rectify this problem. You may be referred to an orthodontist, oral surgeon, or periodontist, or a combination of these specialties. Your treatment may include: dental laser treatments; surgical lip repositioning, orthodontics, recontouring of the gingival tissue and/or underlying bone, and/or maxillofacial surgery if required to relocate the bone. Therefore it is important for you to visit your Sutton Dental Clinic in order to inform yourself when it comes to “gummy smile.” This way you and your dentist can work together can get you the best  treatment and result possible. This may seem like a rather easy dental procedure, and  in many cases it is. However, some of the treatment procedure(s) for “gummy smiles” may at times be long and complicated.
