Gingivectomy and Veneers
Her gums/gingiva contours were not ideal, and her teeth seemed short and small. The problem could not be fixed by lengthening her teeth from the bottom edge because it would result in a huge overbite. We recommended that we re-contour her gums with a laser procedure called a gingivectomy. This procedure has minimal to no post op pain and is completed at ease. The gingivectomy solved that issue by removing excessive gum tissue that was hiding her teeth.
After gingivectomy she was given temporary veneers. The temporaries are like instant veneers!!!! She received veneers in the nick of time, right before New Years Eve!! The contact-lens thin e-max porcelain veneers were applied, giving her the natural looking veneers she asked for.
