BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Alex Farnoosh is a world-renowned cosmetic dentist and Beverly Hills periodontist who has numerous publications in dental journals.
A gummy smile can have a negative impact on the facial aesthetics & create an unattractive smile. Various surgical & non-surgical techniques have been used to correct the gummy smile. More than 20 years ago, Dr. Farnoosh started treating gummy smile and subsequently developed a surgical method called "Lip Lowering" to minimize excessive display of gum tissue. Crown lengthening has also been used in certain cases to reduce the abnormal display of gum tissue as long as it does not result in long teeth & interferes with aesthetic harmony.
Severe cases of gum smile may require both Lip Lowering treatment in conjunction with crown lengthening, especially if the case involves uneven gum line or short teeth. Traditionally these two techniques need to be done in two phases with a time interval between two surgeries.
Dr. Farnoosh has developed a method of treatment in which both procedures can be performed at the same time, therefore eliminating:
a. The need for two surgeries
b. Waiting time between two treatments
c. Inconvenience for the patient having two surgeries
He has been successfully utilized the new treatment method for the past several years to correct a gummy smile.
An attractive smile requires three elements:
1. Pleasant looking and healthy gums
2. Beautiful teeth
3. Properly positioning of the upper lip
When these three elements joined together in an appropriate ratio or proportion, it creates an attractive smile.
