What Is A Gummy Smile?

A gummy smile also referred to as excessive gingival display, is a condition in which a significant amount of gum tissue shows when you smile. This can create the effect of smaller, misshapen teeth because the gum tissue is covering up a majority of the contours of your teeth. Following an evaluation, your dentist will be able to help to determine the cause of your gummy smile and the right treatment option for you. Typically, treatment for a gummy smile involves a crown lengthening procedure, which is a form of cosmetic dentistry in Kinnelon, NJ.

What Is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening, also called esthetic crown lengthening, is done to give people immediate improvement in the look of their smile. The crown of your tooth refers to the exposed part of your tooth sitting above the gumline. Through the removal of gum or bone tissue, crown lengthening reduces the amount of visible gum tissue when you smile and transforms the appearance of small teeth into regular-sized, naturally contoured teeth. For a less gummy smile, your dentist may recommend crown lengthening for you.
