Gummy Smile Treatment (Gingivectomy) - Heinz Orthodontics - Rockford & Grand Rapids MI

Gummy Smile Treatment in the Rockford - Grand Rapids, MI Area

Just like fingerprints, no two people’s smiles are exactly alike. Sometimes teeth can appear to be short or it can look like too much gum tissue is showing. This is what we call a “gummy smile.” If you feel like this describes your particular situation, you’ve come to the right orthodontist.

The good news is that your teeth are not too short. What is actually be happening is that you simply have an excessive amount of gum tissue. If this is the case, we can remove it through a process called a gingivectomy. Utilizing advanced technology, we can remove and reshape the excess gum tissue, giving you a more even and less “gummy” smile.

The process is comfortable, convenient, and affordable. We have treated hundreds of patients who have been concerned about their gummy smiles and have achieved amazing results with every single one of them!

Say Goodbye to that Gummy Smile

Gingivectomy Treatment for a Gummy Smile

We love seeing our patients’ smiles light up the room. For many, a gingivectomy can do just that. By removing and reshaping a portion of the excess gum tissue, Dr. Heinz is able to elongate the appearance of your teeth and transform your smile the way you’ve always dreamed of. See for yourself – take a look at some of our patients’ gummy smile before and after transformations:
