If your smile seems a little droopy or frowning, some dental approaches could likely help. Take a close look — if your teeth are chipped, worn unevenly, or appear short, or if the gums in front appear thick and too long, you may be a candidate for a “smile lift.”
This is where, after close examination, a trained dentist can either repair the teeth to proper size and slope, or recontour the gums to give a more esthetic result. Much of the beauty in a beautiful smile is in our gum tissues. They should be pinkish, pointed between the teeth and with no “black triangle” spaces between the teeth. Gums should also have a distinct curve (“scalloped”) around each tooth, not flat, overgrown or puffy.
Every beautiful smile, whether the movie star type or those beautiful faces we all love, will have more or less of these characteristics. If you would like to discuss your options for a smile lift, call us to schedule your complimentary consultation.
