Tissue sculpting can revise a gummy smile and give teeth a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The procedure offers same-day results, provides lasting improvement and requires no downtime. If you are dissatisfied with how short your teeth look and want a more even and balanced smile, you may be a good candidate for treatment.

Patients in Beverly Hills and the surrounding areas choose Dr. David Anson for tissue sculpting both because of his extensive experience and because he prioritizes their comfort. He invests in advanced technology and is constantly innovating minimally invasive techniques.  He also utilizes smaller and faster-healing sutures and special devices that administer local anesthesia with little-to-no pain. As a patient, you can expect experienced, supportive care at every step.

Why Patients Have Tissue Sculpting

A beautiful smile is one with balance between all of your features: white and even teeth of appropriate size along with a healthy gum line. In a gummy smile—sometimes known as “short tooth syndrome”—the gums cover an overly large portion of the tooth crowns. This can make teeth appear abnormally small or not fully formed.

Gums tend to follow the bone that holds your teeth in place. When there is excess bone around your teeth, you may also have excess gums. With tissue sculpting, Dr. Anson offers patients in Beverly Hills a way to re-shape this underlying structure. The result: the gums follow a more aesthetically pleasing contour in harmony with the rest of the smile.


Your Experience with Tissue Sculpting

In your initial consultation, Dr. Anson will talk with you about your concerns and conduct a comprehensive examination. One of the factors that distinguishes his approach to treatment is the amount of time he invests in patient relationships. As a result, you can get answers to any questions that you may have, have the opportunity to review the treatment plan for tissue sculpting, and become comfortable and confident in the care you will receive.

On the day of your procedure:

  • Tissue sculpting takes place at our practice in Beverly Hills under local anesthesia.
  • We can provide a variety of resources to make your experience more comfortable, from memory foam pillows and blankets to wrap-around headsets for movies and music.
  • Dr. Anson will use tiny, less-invasive instruments to re-contour the arches of your smile.

Tissue sculpting is an “Advil experience”: most patients manage the minor discomfort afterwards with over-the-counter medication. Following your procedure, you should be able to return to work and most other normal daily activities. Our office will be accessible to you to answer any post-treatment questions you have.

One of the reasons that Dr. Anson and our team love providing this procedure is because it offers a same-day transformation: you enter the practice with a gummy smile, and you leave with a beautiful new arch of teeth. You can expect to heal within one week followed by a permanent improvement in the balance and aesthetics of your smile.
