Your gums frame your smile. If excess gum tissue interferes with that frame, gum contouring may help you create an illuminated smile that you love. Also known as gum reshaping, crown lengthening, or gum lifting, this procedure can reshape your gumline to enhance your smile quickly. This cosmetic gum treatment works well as a standalone procedure or when combined with dental veneers to create a perfectly framed smile.
Gum contouring is a safe cosmetic gum treatment performed by experienced specialists only. The specialist will carefully sculpt the gums to uncover the full surface of the teeth. In some cases, the bone underlying the gum line is sculpted as well.
The goal is to create a symmetrical gum line that beautifully frames the teeth for a perfect smile. Every treatment is a little different because every smile is unique.
Many of our patients select gum contouring for aesthetic purposes, but we also accept referrals from other dentists when restorative services are needed. Our trained specialists can reduce tissue mass in the area of a dental problem like a tooth fracture or cavity below the gum line. That allows your dentist easy access to the site for further treatment and placement of long-lasting dental restorations.
