At Maryland Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants, we gear our cosmetic periodontal services towards guaranteeing that you leave our office with a gorgeous smile. Martin Leybovich, DDS, M.S.D
. will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums, taking into consideration the size and shape of your teeth, as well as the thickness and height of your gums. If your teeth appear short, with too much gum showing when you smile, gummy smile treatment in Baltimore
can be performed. Dr. Leybovich is well-educated in procedures to improve a “gummy” smile when your teeth are actually the proper lengths, but are covered with too much gum tissue.
In order to fix this problem. Dr. Leybovich will perform a dental crown lengthening procedure
. During this gummy smile treatment in Baltimore, excess bone and gum tissue is reshaped to expose more of your natural tooth. This treatment can be done to one tooth, to even your gum line, or to several teeth, to expose a broader, yet natural smile. Dr. Leybovich, and our dedicated staff, know that a gummy smile can have an undesirable effect on the general look of your smile, and in turn, effect yourself-esteem. Dr. Leybovich can correct a gummy smile, however, through various treatment options, including crown lengthening.
A gummy smile may be an excessive display of gum tissue in your upper jaw, possibly caused by abnormal eruption of your teeth. Teeth covered by excessive gum tissue typically appear as if they are shorter, even though they can actually be the appropriate length.
A hyperactive muscle that controls your upper lip is another possible cause and, in this case, more of your gum tissue is exposed when the hyperactive muscle causes your upper lip to rise up higher than normal when you smile.Dr. Leybovich knows that in your smile line, visible gum tissue
should be balanced, and have even contours with your upper lip. Gummy smile treatment in Baltimore, with our board certified periodontist, can fix this problem.
