Problems associated with Gummy Smiles

Excess gum tissue around the teeth will make them look small. Additionally, this uneven gum line can make teeth and gums hard to keep clean. In severe cases, this condition can interfere with chewing and speech. Excess growth of gum tissue can be caused by certain medicines. Sometimes however, there is no apparent cause.

Gum Reduction Procedure

Gingivectomy often is done simply to make gums look better. The gums may have an unusual shape or may not be formed normally. The causes can include a person’s genetics, disease or trauma. The laser gum surgery procedure reshapes the gums to make them look more natural.

Before your Biscayne Wellness Center appointment, you should receive a thorough cleaning to remove any bacteria or tartar around the teeth. The gum contouring procedure does not hurt. On the day of the procedure, Top Miami dentist Dr. Hernandez will use a small amount of local anesthetic to numb the gums.
