Gum Treatment at Melton
What Causes a Gummy Smile?
Sometimes a gummy smile is due to longer gums that cover most of the teeth, which is a condition called gingival hypertrophy. But a gummy smile may also be the result of a shorter upper lip, shorter or smaller teeth, or hypermobility of the upper lip which exposes too much gum when smiling.
No matter what the cause of a gummy smile, our team has the treatments to help. We offer a variety of procedures that allow us to customise treatments for our patients. A dental exam will help us determine the best plan of action and we will discuss all options with you, so you can make the best choice for your situation.
Benefits of Gum Treatment
Most patients want gum treatment to help bring their ideal smile to life. But having the ideal smile also results in a healthy smile with teeth that are easier to care for. Our experienced dentists will identify when gums are a problem, such as gums that can hide bacteria and put teeth at a higher risk for decay, or gums that may be damaged due to hidden infection. Your oral health will improve as you enjoy a reduce risk of future dental issues and a smile that shows your beautiful teeth.

Customised Treatments for a Gummy Smile
Recontouring gums or injectables like Cosmetic Injectable may only serve as a partial solution for some patients. Our staff at Melton Dental House understands this, so we do a full dental exam and evaluation to customise treatments for our patients. For example, sometimes gum recontouring may expose teeth that are crooked above the gum line, which is often not what patients want. We can learn this before we do the recontouring and work together to find the ideal solution for the situation. Our goal is to ensure you receive the highest quality care you deserve while we work with you every step of the way, to bring your dream smile to life.
Gum Treatment After Care
Since most treatments are minimally invasive with low risk, aftercare includes common healthy oral hygiene habits. Brushing is recommended at least twice each day and flossing according to your dentist’s instructions. Regular dental checkups and cleanings will keep your oral health in tip-top shape. In addition, the following guidelines can help ensure the best experience after your gum treatment.
