Have you been self-conscious of your smile because of how “gummy” it looks? You are not alone! Thankfully, today’s dental techniques provide a simple solution to give you that fuller, more confident smile. Gum recontouring is a procedure for patients who have prominent gum tissue and an unbalanced ratio of tooth enamel to gums. By reshaping your gum tissue, we’re able to expose more of the tooth surface and create a more harmonious smile. This treatment can also help patients with gum disease, as it shrinks the gum pockets and corrects receding gums. Ask us if gum recontouring is right for your smile.
