Fix A Gummy Smile With Your Timonium Dentist
There is a part of your smile known as the smile line. This is the area that is visible when you smile, including the front teeth. The smile line is affected by factors such as:
- Facial muscles.
- The size and shape of lips.
- The size and shape of teeth.
- Gum tissue.
In our Timonium practice, we meet with men and women who feel that their upper teeth are short or are somehow overtaken by the amount of gum tissue that shows when they smile.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct Your Smile
Often, excessive tissue (not short teeth) is to blame for what we call a “gummy smile”. Through innovative cosmetic dentistry procedures such as a dental laser or radiosurgery gum lift ,we can correct your gums. This happens as part of a comprehensive and thorough approach to exquisite smile rejuvenation.
We use modern-day technology, including a dental laser, to correct gummy smiles and achieve your ideal smile. Ideal proportions of the teeth are achieved by surgically moving the gums upward on the upper teeth.
Dr. Haywood’s Artistry And Precision
A precise knowledge of how to achieve gum lifting and the use of a dental laser allow Dr. Haywood to achieve some of his best makeovers. Every treatment plan is devised based on your unique set of circumstances and physical makeup.
When a small movement of the gum or just a little reshaping is needed, we can use the latest radio-surgical technology in almost all of our cases. When a major gum lift or minor gum recontouring is required, Dr. Haywood performs his hallmark procedure, the Haywood surgical smile makeover.
This procedure combines the necessary surgery with same day, customized veneer restorations in our Pikesville and Towson area practice, which allows us to guide tissue healing and anticipate the ideal cosmetic result immediately.
Undergoing the Haywood smile makeover, you can walk out of our office with an amazing gum and smile transformation!
