Cosmetic Dentist in Chicago Explains Gummy Smile Treatment With a Smile Lift

Dr. Sheldon Seidman of Smile Chicago Talks About How a Non-Surgical Smile Lift Can Help Patients Who Have Excess Gum Tissue Along the Teeth

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Mar 5, 2015) - Cosmetic dentist Sheldon Seidman, DDS recognizes the impact uneven gums -- sometimes called a "gummy smile" -- can have on a person's appearance and dental health. At his practice, Smile Chicago, Dr. Seidman encourages patients to consider the Smile Lift procedure if they are seeking treatment for this common condition. During a Smile Lift treatment, Dr. Seidman uses a soft tissue laser to remove excess tissue, reshape the gums, and move the bone underneath.

In his latest blog post, "Eliminating a Gummy Smile with a Smile Lift," Dr. Seidman explains some of the reasons why patients should seek treatment. He encourages patients to consider how oversized gums can lead to gum disease since it may prevent them from brushing and flossing correctly. He also says excessive gums can make teeth appear smaller; or one's smile less attractive due to uneven gum tissue.

Dr. Seidman reveals several advantages of the procedure in a follow-up blog entry: "The Benefits of Using a Smile Lift to Fix a Gummy Smile." He notes that since the procedure is minimally-invasive, it's often virtually painless and less complicated than traditional oral surgery. Dr. Seidman says patients typically heal shortly after the treatment and are pleased at how much easier it is to brush and floss their teeth. Along with possibly decreasing their risk of periodontal disease, he explains how a Smile Lift can also drastically even out their smile and improve their appearance.

Ultimately, Dr. Seidman advises patients to consult a skilled cosmetic dentist to discuss potential treatment options that can reduce excess gum tissue. He believes the condition should never be an obstacle for patients wishing to achieve their dream smile.
