Is Your Smile Rather Gummy?

When you smile, are your upper teeth nicely framed by your gums, or do you feel you show a bit too much gum tissue? Perhaps your upper teeth look a bit short compared to the amount of gum tissue displayed during smiling? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, you might just have what’s called a “gummy smile” and which can almost certainly be treated comfortably here at Margolian Dentistry.

If you have always desired a more beautiful smile, you’re probably in the habit of noticing the teeth of celebrities, film stars and others in the public eye. Often their teeth can seem to be impossibly perfect, but the chances are they’ve improved their smile with porcelain veneers. A chip or crack in a tooth or an unsightly gap in between teeth can frequently be covered up. Broken or discoloured and stained teeth can be made to look attractive once more.

Invisible Braces: Is it Time You Straightened Up?

Has the thought of having a straighter smile always appealed to you? Perhaps the idea of wearing traditional wired braces has deterred you from seeking treatment?

A gummy smile is quite a common problem, but if it is making you feel self-conscious when you smile or talk with others, it’s worth discussing the problem with your Whitby dentist.
