Cosmetic Gum Treatment
in Seal Beach
A gummy smile or uneven gumline can detract from your smile and make you self-conscious about smiling or speaking in public. Fortunately, Dr. Aslam expertly corrects these conditions to create beautiful, natural-looking and confident smiles.
Fixing a Gummy Smile or Uneven Gumline
Having an overgrowth of gum tissue can make a person’s teeth look small and unattractive. Oftentimes, there are healthy, beautiful teeth hidden under the overgrown gums. Dr. Aslam skillfully trims excess tissue from the gumline, lengthening the appearance of the teeth and creating a more attractive smile. To ensure the treatment results in an attractive and evenly proportioned smile, he creates and uses a custom guide that enables him to precisely sculpt the gumline into its ideal aesthetic and functional position.
Crown Lengthening for Placement of Crowns or Veneers
In addition to removing and recontouring gum tissue to provide a more aesthetic smile and evenly proportioned gumline, Dr. Aslam provides functional crown lengthening to expose more of the tooth surface in preparation for other cosmetic dental procedures, such as new crowns or porcelain veneers.
