What are the treatment options?

If you are struggling to get rid of a gummy smile, there are usually two treatment options. For those who don’t know, you can hide the gums or you make the teeth look longer to cover a bigger part of the gums. Contouring of gums is one of the most widely recommended treatments in such cases when it comes to repairing the smile. However, before prescribing the treatment method, doctors will do a detailed study of the dental structure and identify the cause of the problem. Yes! Very often the irregularity in the structure of your gums is a result of a genetic disorder. Identification of the problem will be possible only after the doctor will do a series of tests. In case, the problem is genetic, the doctor will prescribe medicines. In some cases, doctors also prescribe a combination treatment where the contouring of gums is coupled with fixing of veneers as well in order to have the required impact on the dental structure.
