Treatment for gummy smile and uneven gum line
What is a gummy smile?
When too much gum is showing you have a gummy smile. In some cases too much gum covering the teeth makes the teeth look small. There are many other causes of this condition, so a careful assessment is essential in order to undertake the right treatment to increase the amount of tooth showing.
Uneven gum line
I am worried that my smile is not quite right. Might I have short teeth?
Often too much gum can show and as a result, some teeth do not look right in relation to other teeth. Sometimes the gum margin can be at different levels and there is loss of symmetry with the smile, the teeth and the gum line. It is essential that an accurate assessment is made before any treatment is undertaken. Dr King will assess your gum line, the alignment of your teeth, your lip line, the size of your teeth and the condition of your gums before discussing possible treatment options.
