Gummy smile treating at Cosmodent India
There are two ways in which this particular condition can be corrected
Gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed when amount of gum reduction is considered minimal as is the case with mild gummy smiles. During this surgical procedure, the dental surgeon at Cosmodent India removes the minimal amount of gum tissue using a dental laser. It is also known as radio surgery. It is a painless procedure and needs no sutures. Gum tissues heal within two to three weeks.
In case, the gum tissue is advances and needs an extensive tissue reduction then crown lengthening is the recommended procedure. It is also a painless procedure and each gum tissue is contoured around individual tooth. The tissue is lifted off the bone and placed in a new place. Tissues are sutured and take around a week or two to heal. Once tissues heal, sutures are removed. The new repositioned gums further take seven to eight weeks to heal before placing the final restorations. This procedure is further restored by treatment using either porcelain crown or veneers that are needed for achieving a curvy smile.
