What Can Be Done About Excessive or Uneven Gums?

Dealing with a gummy smile that you wish you could change? You have options!

How aesthetically pleasing your smile looks relies on both the health of your mouth as well as the overall look. But if you are dealing with excessive or uneven gums then you may be wishing you had a different smile. Fortunately, your Lumberton cosmetic dentist Dr. Colin GumsOsborne, III has the answer you’ve been looking for.

What causes excessive or uneven gums?

There are some people for whom genetics is to blame for this issue, while others experienced an injury to their smile that has caused teeth and gums to shift out of alignment. Other oral health issues may cause certain areas of the gums to recede away from your teeth, causing an uneven gum line. Fortunately, we know exactly what to do to treat the issue.

How will my Lumberton dentist treat this issue?

Surgery is the answer to treating excessive or uneven gum tissue. If you are dealing with excessive gum tissue then we may recommend a gingivectomy, which will remove some of the unnecessary gum tissue and give you a more even smile. This procedure is performed right here in our office under local anesthesia. There are several tools that can be used during a gingivectomy from scalpels to lasers.

Ready to get a more even, attractive smile that you can’t wait to show off? Then you owe it to yourself to call our Lumberton dental office to schedule your consultation. Dr. Colin Osborne, III is here to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. What are you waiting for?
