This is a very effective treatment to resolve excess gum tissue when the gum is partly covering teeth making them smaller.

Who would carry out this treatment?

This would be carried out by one of our periodontal gum specialists Cliff Nissen or Joel Thomas.

Why would one need this treatment?

This treatment is a very useful strategy for repairing ‘gummy’ smiles. In these cases the teeth appear very small, however once this aspect is corrected it completely transforms the smile. On occasions, this is complemented with a need for composite bonding or veneers.

What does the procedure involve?

The extra gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. It can involve a single tooth to make the gum line even or several teeth to create a broader smile.

Is the procedure painful?

A local anaesthetic is used to numb the area so that you do not feel any pain. Aftercare with normal painkillers is usually sufficient.
