Fixing a Gummy Smile

A gummy smile or uneven gumline can detract from a smile. It can make you feel self-conscious about smiling or speaking in public. Gum tissue overgrowth is not only a cosmetic concern, it can also cause problems with oral health. Too much tissue makes it more difficult to properly keep teeth clean and increases the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Dr. Sanger is highly trained in periodontal (gum) treatment.

To treat a gummy smile, Dr. Sanger carefully removes excess tissue from the gumline, lengthening the appearance of your teeth and creating a more attractive smile. Similarly, she can remove tissue that creates an uneven gumline, giving you a more aesthetic smile.

Dr. Sanger takes meticulous care to make sure that the result is aesthetic and well-proportioned. For the best results, Dr. Sanger may also gently reshape the bone tissue that lies beneath the gums, if necessary.
