Treatment for Gummy Smiles & Uneven Gums in Brentwood, Franklin & Nashville
An uneven gumline is created when one or more of your teeth have an excess of gum tissue, making your gumline appear crooked or uneven. Dr. Primm can correct your uneven gums by carefully removing excess gum tissue to even out your gumline.
A gummy smile occurs when you show an excessive amount of gum when you smile. If your teeth are covered by too much gum tissue, Dr. Primm can recontour your gumline to uncover more of your natural teeth. This treatment is often referred to as “crown lengthening” as it makes your teeth look longer and more natural.
If you have an especially mobile upper lip that causes you to reveal too much gum when you smile, Dr. Primm can fix this with a lip travel reduction. This procedure limits the movement of your upper lip to reveal less gum.
