When you look in the mirror, do you like the smile you see? The flaws and strengths of your smile may be subjective, but if there are things about yours you don’t like, such as a gummy smile. We can fix it with cosmetic dentistry at The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY!
The shape and size of your gum-line can make your teeth appear too large or too small, or otherwise out of proportion. Gum contouring can correct gums that appear too low or too high in relation to the teeth, and customize them for the perfect smile.
Determining just what it is that makes a smile appear too gummy is more complicated than you might think. Your smile is the sum of its parts: the proportions of not only the gums themselves, but the teeth and upper jaw, and even the lips.
In most cases, bringing the proportion of visible gum into harmony with the teeth is enough to make a difference. When excessive gum tissue obscures some of the teeth, a technique called crown lengthening can correct it.
If you’re self-conscious about a gummy smile, cosmetic dentistry from The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY can help. We’ve improved the smiles of patients throughout Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle, and also offer general dentistry. Contact us today!
