OTTAWA GUMMY SMILE | GUMMY SMILES | OTTAWA DENTIST | SERVICES |

A beautiful smile shows most of the 8-10 upper teeth with almost no gum above the two front teeth.

Certain pathologic/physiologic conditions result in too much exposure of the gum above the upper front teeth which people refer to as a “gummy smile”.

Ottawa Gummy Smiles

“Gummy smiles,” can be addressed in our office to show less of your gums, and more of your teeth. In such cases, Dr. Kamel will simply reshape and reposition the gums so that they are not as visible in order to achieve a more beautiful smile.

OTTAWA DENTAL IMPLANTS | OTTAWA IMPLANTS | OTTAWA DENTIST | OTTAWA DENTAL SERVICES

When the bone has grown around the implant, a porcelain crown can then be placed into the implant, or in some cases, a bridge or denture can be fitted to the implant. Dr. Kamel begins by making an incision in the gum, exposing the bone in the jaw, and making a hole for the dental implant. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are implanted into the jaw, having the look and feel of natural teeth.

OTTAWA GUM DISEASE | OTTAWA PERIODONTAL DISEASE | OTTAWA DENTIST | SERVICES | GUM DISEASE | PERIODONTAL DISEASE

Although genetics may play a small role in its development, doctors agree that gum disease is directly related to how well one cares for their teeth and gums. Adults in their 30s and beyond, the threat of gum disease (periodontal disease) is a very real and potentially dangerous condition. Brushing your teeth twice a day helps to remove the thin layer of bacteria that release the dangerous toxins into your mouth.
