Patient 1 is the wife of an esthetic dentist. She was unhappy with her “gummy” smile. It bothered her to the point that she tried to hide her smile. While using microsurgical techniques, we were able to expose her natural tooth form, which was hiding under the gum tissue. This was accomplished in one procedure with little to no discomfort. She had very little down time and since the sutures are so small and barely visible, she went back to work the next day.
Patient 2: Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Patient 2 had a very gummy smile and had in fact trained herself to limit the extent of her smile, not to show her gums. Again using very minimally invasive techniques, we were able to expose the enamel of her teeth which was hiding under the gum tissue. She now felt much more comfortable with the amount of gum tissue showing and decided to pursue dental veneers to close the spaces and straighten her teeth. This procedure really changed her life.
Patient 3: Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Patient 3 has a high smile line and was concerned with the amount of gum tissue showing. Using microsurgical techniques, a very minimally invasive technique was used to expose her teeth. This patient was so thrilled with her results that she decided not to pursue veneers.
Patient 4: Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Patient 4 has a skeletal overgrowth of her upper jaw. She declined jaw surgery but did pursue cosmetic crown lengthening. She also trained herself to limit how much gum tissue she showed. She was so happy she completed the procedure, it was very easy for her and the results changed her life.
