Gummy Smile Correction
A ‘Gummy Smile’ is a condition where a person’s teeth appear abnormally small when smiling. Treatment is determined according to the appearance of the gums and periodontal condition of the teeth (gingival health and bone support).
The treatment options include lifting and modifying the gums to the extent permitted by tissues and/or surgical lip repositioning. Both of the procedures are minor surgical interventions, performed under local anaesthesia and are of about 30-40 minutes in duration. Botox has also been commonly used for the treatment of the ‘Gummy Smile’ condition in recent years. Our polyclinic provides Gummy Smile correction treatment by a Specialist Periodontologiest who will perform the operation using the latest Laser technology.
