Say goodbye to gummy smiles when you visit your Pembroke Pines dentist.

When we think about ways to improve our smiles we often think about changing the look of our teeth; however, our gums can also Gum Disease dictate our smile’s appearance. If you have a gummy smile, you may be looking for ways to even out your smile to get a more natural and attractive look. Find out how your Pembroke Pines dentists Dr. May Yazji-Corey and Dr. Dora Rodriguez can help.

What causes uneven or excessive gums?

There are a multitude of factors that are responsible for this problem. This condition is most often inherited, but it can also be the result of tooth wear, poor oral hygiene or aggressive brushing (which can push gums away). But no matter what is causing your uneven gums, your dentist in Pembroke Pines, FL can help give you a more even, beautiful smile.

How will my Pembroke Pines cosmetic dentist treat my gum issues?

Gingival sculpting or contouring is a cosmetic procedure in which we reshape the gum tissue to offer a more attractive and even smile. By removing some gum tissue, either through traditional surgical measures or with laser dentistry, we can sculpt a more natural-looking smile which can improve your confidence.

Even though gingival sculpting is often used to remove diseased pockets of tissue in those with gum disease, this procedure can also be performed for cosmetic purposes. Gingival sculpting can easily treat uneven or gummy smiles in just one visit. This process usually takes no more than an hour and is performed under local anesthesia so that the patient does not experience discomfort. Since this treatment is only minor you shouldn’t need stitches.

If you want to eliminate excessive and uneven gums then there is no better place to turn then your dentist in Pembroke Pines. Let Miracle Dental Center give you the smile you’ve been waiting for.
