Dr. Ben Frandsen may recommend gum sculpting to improve the health and appearance of your gums and smile. This treatment is typically recommended for individuals with “gummy” smiles, or excessive gum tissue. We may recommend gum sculpting for health or cosmetic purposes. To schedule an appointment with our orthodontist and learn more about gum sculpting in Orem, Utah, call Frandsen Orthodontics today at 801-375-3355.
Gum sculpting is a simple treatment recommended when teeth appear abnormally short. This may occur for several reasons, including:
- Excessive gum tissue
- Gums that appear too bulky
- Gums that come too far down over the teeth
- An uneven or asymmetric gumline
Gum sculpting is also known as cosmetic gum surgery, crown lengthening and gingivectomy. When you receive gum sculpting, our orthodontist will simply remove a small amount of your gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth structure and give you a more aesthetic and even smile.
During your initial consultation, our orthodontist will examine your gums and discuss their health and appearance with you to determine if gum sculpting is a good option for your smile. We invite you to contact us for more information about gum sculpting and schedule your consultation with our orthodontist and team!
