We all know that our smile is the first thing someone notices about each of us. Some people’s teeth look small in proportion to their face, an optical effect mainly to do with the excess gum tissue covering the teeth. This extra gum tissue often becomes an issue after braces are removed, as a side effect of medication or as a result of hormonal changes.
If you have a gummy smile, the removal of extra gum tissue may be the right solution for you. Gum tissue removal sculpts the gum line so that it is even and in proportion to the amount of exposed tooth versus gum. This procedure is focused on exposing more of the tooth crown.
