If you have an excess of gum tissue around your teeth, you may have what is often referred to as a “gummy smile.” Those with excessive gum tissue often have the appearance of shorter teeth or bulky, thick gums. Typically, a gummy smile is the result of excess gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. Luckily, if you have this condition, our dentists and team can quickly correct your smile, returning it to a more aesthetic appearance. This treatment, which is often called a gingivectomy or crown lengthening, can be completed during a short, comfortable appointment with our team at Adam Dental Care.

During your appointment, Dr. Ibrahim El-Garawany and associates will remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth and leaving you with a more cosmetic smile that you will love to show off.
