Have you ever heard the term ’gummy smile’? Well this term id used to describe a smile where the gum and teeth are not in proportion. Often the guns are covering more of the tooth’s surface than is normal and give teeth a smaller appearance. This is not a problem for many, nor does it affect the health of the teeth and gums, but it is a cosmetic procedure done for the aesthetics of the teeth and smile. It is fast becoming a popular cosmetic treatment as it can change the appearance of the smile so quickly. Depending on treatment needed we offer procedures which can reshape and lift the gums in just one appointment. The procedures are pain-free and can give a more even symmetry to the mouth, teeth and gums. Gums that cover the teeth can leave teeth looking small and peg like. Lifting the gums so that more tooth in seen and less gum is shown can easily rectify this. Gum contouring can make a big difference to ho the teeth look and can give a boost of confidence to patients after treatment. Contact Clifton Dental of Bristol for more help and information.
