Do you have a "Gummy Smile"?
Gummy smile can prevent an individual to laugh out loud or smile confidently.
These are instances where a disproportionate amount of gum is shown on a full smile due to having small or short teeth, a hyperactive upper lip or a combination of both.
When indicated a procedure called "crown lengthening" or gum lift can be performed to increase the size of the teeth and reduce the gumminess. In Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry, we do this using a laser.
For a hyperactive upper lip, a dose of Botox may be needed. Our Plastic surgeon colleagues located on the same floor can prescribe the right dose of botox which is administered by qualified nurse injectors.
Please see our gum lift page for more information or call us on 82131821 to book a consultation time.
