When You May Need A Smile Makeover

  • Cracked teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Darkened or discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth

Give Your Teeth A Makeover

Dr. Gleave can conceal the flaws above and eliminate your self-consciousness with porcelain veneers or prep-less veneers. Veneers are thin but sturdy coatings that he attaches to the front of any unsightly teeth, effectively hiding the imperfections from view. If you choose porcelain veneers for your smile makeover, he’ll remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the affected teeth and place custom veneers during the course of multiple visits. If you qualify, he may even be able to provide prep-less veneers in a single appointment. In all cases, he makes sure your veneers match the color of the untreated surrounding teeth for a seamless smile.

No Matter The Flaw, We Have The Fix

If veneers can’t fix your crooked teeth, Dr. Gleave can fit you with short-term orthodontics to straighten them. If they require more complex treatment, he also performs full mouth reconstruction to make your smile look the way it should. Sometimes the problem with a smile is not the teeth, but the gums that surround them. If you feel you have excessive gum tissue dominating your smile, you have what’s called a gummy smile. Dr. Gleave can give you a more balanced smile by removing small portions of gum tissue and carefully shaping the remaining gums around your teeth for a natural, pleasing appearance.

Gum Reshaping And Gum Reduction Treatment Benefits

Your beautiful smile shouldn’t be hindered by gum issues, which is why Dr. Gleave offers patient-friendly laser gum reshaping and gummy smile treatment at our Salt Lake City, UT dentist office.

Gum reshaping is where your gum line is gently and carefully removed and evened out all along the gum line so more of each tooth is exposed. This helps give your smile a more attractive, balanced look where your teeth and gums are finally in proper proportion to each other.

Dr. Gleave Can Easily

Give Your Teeth & Gums Visual Balance

The difference you’ll notice right away after undergoing gum reshaping treatment with Dr. Gleave is how great your smile looks! What was once an imbalanced smile where your gums overpower your teeth and make them look too small will now look even and attractively proportioned.

Make Other Dental Treatments Easier & More Comfortable

Dentistry has come a long way in recent years thanks to advances in technology. What used to be uncomfortable is now a much better experience today. Despite that, extra gum tissue can make some restorative treatments less desirable options. That’s because there’s not only more opportunity to irritate your gums, but the likelihood of a dental restoration having enough tooth to bond to decreases. Gum reshaping can be a pathway to other dental treatments you need to have a healthy, attractive smile.

Give Your Teeth The Attention They Deserve

It’s okay for kids to have small teeth, but for adults, it can be an embarrassing problem with your smile! That’s what a gummy smile does. It makes your teeth look smaller than they are just because they’re covered up with excess gum tissue. But Dr. Gleave can reshape your gums by carefully removing some of that extra tissue and exposing more tooth. That way, when you smile, your teeth become the deserved star of the show!

Get A More Even Gumline

For the same reason a person seeks orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth or tooth bonding to smooth out rough edges, symmetry makes your teeth more attractive. Gum reshaping is just another way Dr. Gleave can give your smile that nice, even look we all want. Without the extra gum tissue that hides your teeth, you can smile knowing that everything looks even and beautiful.

Feel Better About Yourself

A gummy smile is just one of those things that can be blow to your self-esteem despite being in good oral health. You’re not going to feel confident smiling for pictures or when laughing and talking with others if you know all anyone can pay attention to are your gums. Dr. Gleave can give your smile balance with gum reshaping so you can love the way you look. It’s a great way to not only enhance your smile’s visual appeal, but it’s an effective way to improve the way you feel about yourself overall.
