Is a Gummy Smile Affecting Your Confidence?
A “gummy smile,” or one showing too much gum tissue compared with tooth structure, leaves teeth looking short and self-confidence diminished. The concern goes beyond smile esthetics, however – excess or overgrown gum tissue allows harmful bacteria to flourish, placing your oral health at even greater risk for complications. With a common periodontal procedure known as crown lengthening, Dr. Patrick McDonough gently reduces excess tissue and artistically sculpts the gum line to deliver the healthy, radiant smile you seek.
What Does Crown Lengthening Correct?
A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and member of the American Dental Association, Dr. McDonough is committed to restoring health and beauty to the smile with the following crown lengthening procedures:
Esthetic Crown Lengthening reshapes the gum line, eliminating excess, bulbous or overgrown gum tissue caused by:
- Gum disease
- Certain medications
Functional Crown Lengthening reduces gum height and underlying bone to enable restoration of teeth broken or decayed below the gum line.
