Improving Your Smile with Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

April 30, 2024

At our dental practice, we believe that every smile is unique and deserves to be showcased. That's why we offer a range of services designed to enhance the natural beauty of your teeth and gums. One such service is cosmetic gum recontouring, which can help address issues related to "gummy" smiles.

What Causes a Gummy Smile?

A smile that shows an excessive amount of gum tissue is often referred to as a "gummy" smile. This condition can be caused by various factors, including genetics and growth patterns, short upper lip or hyperactive upper lift, size of the teeth, incomplete tooth eruption, and overgrown or hypertrophic gum tissue.

How Can Cosmetic Gum Recontouring Help?

Cosmetic gum recontouring is a minor surgical procedure that can help create a more aesthetically pleasing smile by reducing excess gum tissue and sculpting a more natural-looking gumline. By doing so, this treatment exposes more of the tooth's crown, which can improve the overall balance and appearance of your smile.

Why Choose Us for Your Cosmetic Gum Recontouring?

At our dental practice, we take a personalized approach to care. We understand that every patient has unique needs and preferences, which is why we tailor our treatments to achieve the most cosmetically pleasing and healthy results possible. Our experienced team of professionals will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan designed to meet your specific goals and expectations.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

Beyond the obvious cosmetic benefits, gum recontouring can also contribute to improved oral health. Excess gum tissue can create hiding spots for bacteria, making it difficult to maintain optimal oral hygiene. By removing this excess tissue, we can help reduce your risk of developing gum disease and other dental problems.

Is Gum Recontouring Right for You?

If you're unhappy with the appearance of your smile due to a "gummy" appearance, cosmetic gum recontouring may be an excellent option for you. During a consultation at our dental practice, we will evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals and expectations in detail. Based on this information, we can recommend the most appropriate treatment options to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
