Curing a gummy smile!

Case Study Details

This is a process call altered passive eruption.  When teeth are not in the correct orientation and they experience wear the teeth will erupt and pull the gum tissue with them.  This often gives the appearance of a gummy smile.  The treatment for these gummy smiles is not veneers. Rather these case are treated with esthetic gum surgery or orthodontics.  This case was treated by esthetic crown lengthening.  Give us a call to discuss this option for the treatment of a gummy smile.
