Gummy Smile Correction
Sometimes our gums overwhelm our teeth and cause what is often called a gummy smile. With this condition, there is too much gum tissue showing and teeth look short. With a gum lift or crown lengthening procedure, we can remove excess gum tissue, reshape the contour of the gums, and give you a natural-looking gum line and teeth that appear to be a more correct length and size. This technique is also ideal if your gum line is uneven, making your teeth appear crooked even if they aren’t.
When gums recede, the roots of teeth can become exposed. This not only causes pain, sensitivity, and a higher risk for infection, but it also makes teeth appear longer. We can perform a soft tissue graft, or a gum graft, to replace the receding tissue, cover the roots, and restore your gum line to a more natural look. During this periodontal cosmetic surgery, Dr. Dyer removes soft tissue from the top of the mouth or another source and transplants it onto the affected areas of the gums. A gum graft not only protects the roots of teeth, but also can help prevent additional recession.
If you’ve lost a tooth or had a tooth extracted, you may notice indentations in your gums where the tooth used to be. This is caused by bone loss that naturally occurs when a tooth is missing. In addition to using a dental implant to replace your missing tooth, we can perform ridge augmentation to smooth out the indentation and restore a natural curvature to your gums and jaw.
Dr. Dyer and his staff are very considerate and communicate well with their patients. Dentistry can be an anxious experience and these folks are sensitive to your needs. Very helpful through and after the procedures done.

I know that my teeth are in good hands with Dr Dyer and his team..Being a person who is so scared of having my teeth worked on, I’m really relaxed.. Dr.Dyer does an EXCELLENT job on my implants , and follows up making sure that everything is how it should be. I moved to Tomball, and I still come to his office!

As usual, my visit to Dr. Dyer was a great experience. I have been going to Dr. Dyer for about 8 years and have never waited more than 5 min. My last visit was a tooth cleaning and as usual it was well-done and the visit with Dr.Dyer at the end was thorough. Best dentist I have ever had.
