Gummy Smile Gone!

My smile was okay. I was always conscious of mow I had a 50/50 gum tooth ratio. I suffered from "tiny" teeth. My oral surgeon re sculpted my entire top gum line with a scalpel. He was helpful, informative, and has checked on me via text and mail after the fact. The procedure took less than 90... READ MORE

I hated my smile before it used to be so ugly gummy and uneven but after my crown lengthening procedure I literally have the perfect smile it was 100 percent worth the money.

gum lift at 23...tots worth it! :)

I've always hated how childish and small my teeth looked and how my gums would show any time I smiled. Whenever I laughed I would ALWAYS cover my mouth.

Changed my whole smile

After having braces and bonding on teeth to elongate, my gummy smile still bothered me. I finally went to a cosmetic dentist to discuss veneers, but after they quoted me $30,000+ and didn't even mention crown lengthening..I was a little disappointed. Fortunately, I went to a periodontist at the... READ MORE

Crown Lengthening - Miami, FL

I had my procedure done 3 weeks ago by Dr.Fain in north Miami, fl ... the gums are still healing but the results thus far have been amazing.

After a Year of Debating, Finally Getting my Gummy Smile Surgery. Fort Lauderdale, FL

I went to Premiere Dental today looking for a second opinion on a quote for a gummy smile surgery procedure that I received from another dentist in Miami.

Since I was getting braces, I figured I might as well complete the process with nice, pink gums! :) The procedure was only like 2 hours or less (with a break).
