Your smile needs a healthy amount of gum tissue in order for it to look and feel its best. An overabundance of gum tissue, however, can create a new set of problems. A “gummy” smile can affect your appearance and make it harder for you to properly care for your teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Santhi Yenna, can offer cosmetic gum shaping in Elgin, Illinois. Call Bowes Dental Care at 847-697-9900 and a member of our team can help you plan your visit.
