NYC Gummy Smile Correction by Viviane Trinh, DMD

The mouth is home to many of the body’s nerves, so when something wrong is happening to the tooth, the health of the overall body may be affected as well. It is quite common for people to have problems with not only their teeth, but their gums. Based on a check-up and examination, our cosmetic dentist can determine whether the gum or teeth is the underlying cause of any pain or discomfort. Cosmetic gum surgery can be used for both cosmetic and medical solutions. We offer procedures such as gummy smile correction at our NYC office.


How can cosmetic gum surgery help me?

While some procedures use a scalpel, today’s technology has developed to the point where most procedures are carried out with laser treatments. In gum surgery, we can often remove the gingiva, or the gum tissue, if it is experiencing problems caused by bleeding or infection. Occasionally, people may experience gum weakness and bleeding. In this case, the dentist can perform gingivoplasty in order to fix and reshape the gums.

What is a gummy smile correction?

Additionally, we offer gummy smile correction in NYC. Gummy smile refers to the condition where the gum is very exposed when a person smiles. At Dr. Viviane Trinh’s cosmetic dentist office, we can treat this condition quickly, painlessly and easily with our laser treatment. Our gum contouring techniques are designed to make the patient feel as comfortable as possible and to avoid the usage of as scalpel whenever possible.

What is a frenectomy?

We can also perform a procedure called a frenectomy, which is done when a patient does not like their gum tissue called a Frenulum. A Frenulum is a small piece of tissue that restricts motion and is commonly found under the tongue, gum sides, and upper side of the two front teeth. This small piece of tissue can lead to discomfort when eating and removing it is a quick procedure.

Reasons for consider a Frenectomy procedure

Difficulty moving your tongue

Frenulum development between incisors which leads to gap in teeth

Gum recession due to lower lip pull from incisors

Gaps in between front teeth
