Gummy smiles are more common than you might think and they can be fixed by an experienced dentist. If you are in the market for dental veneers or a dental crown, give us a call. If you see your gums pulling away from your teeth, you need to get to the dentist right away.
If you find any bleeding while brushing your teeth, make an appointment to see us in our dental spa. Your family dentist can take care of tooth decay and fill any cavities that need to be removed. A dental veneer can mask a defect in a tooth or fix the look of a tooth that has been damaged. Tooth decay can be prevented to a certain extent if you eat a balanced diet and brush and floss frequently.
There is bacteria in plaque that can irritate the gums, causing them to get red, swell, or bleed. Some people would rather wait until their gums have healed before having dentures fitted. Children will usually have about 20 teeth by the age of three.
