Case Study: Treatment for a Gummy Smile

Case Study:

We would like to share this case completed by Mr Gilbert demonstrating the use of smile design on a 25 year old female patient.

This case involved a gum lengthening procedure on this young lady’s front 8 teeth to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile and to lengthen her teeth.

After a healing period her natural teeth were whitened.

This smile make-over case was completed by preparation and placement of 8 anterior porcelain veneers.

Patient’s Testimonial:

”I was very unhappy with my natural smile as my teeth were quite short and gave a ‘gummy’ appearance. I was so aware of it all the time that I deleted smiling altogether, especially for photographs.
I had heard great reports about Creative Smiles from other patients who had had smile improvements carried out and when I went to see them for my initial appointment, I knew It was the best place to be.
Since having my smile-makeover I now smile without having my hand over my mouth. I smile with confidence and without any insecurities. Now I will happily pose for a photograph!”
