Half of every smile is your gums - and fortunately for some of us, that half is hidden from sight. But if your gums want a piece of your smile's spotlight that's a bit larger than you'd like, then what can be done to lessen the gummy appearance of your grin from here on out?

At Miracle Dentistry, LLC, that unappealing "gummy" look can be eliminated forever. That's because the expert dental staff on site Gummake it their goal to have your mouth showing off your pearly whites for every grin - no uneven or excessive gum line included!

The experienced dentists at Miracle Dentistry know exactly what needs to be done in the case of too-much gum, providing specific steps for each patient depending on individual dental needs. For most patients, common treatments for a gummy smile include:

  • Immediate laser treatment.
  • Surgical lip alterations.
  • Orthodontic therapy to shift teeth into more appealing positions.
  • Masterful sculpting of the problematic gum tissues and surrounding bone to construct more appealing gum contours.
  • Maxillofacial surgery to move bone structures to improved positions.

Often times, a periodontist specializing in gum work will be relied upon to further improve your smile by conducting a procedure known as crown lengthening, which is often done on uneven gum lines looking for a change. Specifically, your excess gum tissue and occasionally its surrounding bone structures will be safely peeled back to show off the toothy look you've been waiting to smile about, rendering that unappealing gummy grin a thing of the past!

If your gummy smile has gone on for too long, it's time to find real answers from expert dentists right here in Pembroke Pines, FL. Give one of the trusted dental professionals at Miracle Dentistry a call today at (954) 885-9560 for more information on how you can kiss your gummy smile goodbye!
