Gum Contouring

A Straighter Gum Line with Gum Contouring

A beautiful smile is more than just healthy, blemish-free teeth. Appropriately, not all cosmetic dental treatments are designed improve your tooth structure. Cosmetic gum contouring is a procedure designed to trim away excess gum tissues and make your gum line more even and symmetrical. It’s one of the most frequently-recommended solutions for correcting a gummy smile, or the uneven display of your gums, to improve your smile’s appearance and reduce your risks of gum health concerns.

How you can benefit from gum contouring

Having a gummy smile means that your gums cover a disproportionate amount of tooth structure on one or several of your teeth. The condition can be caused by a variety of factors, though in many cases, it can be corrected by gently trimming away the excess tissues so that your gums outline your teeth more symmetrically. This offers several benefits for your smile, including:

  • Higher confidence in your smile’s appearance
  • A reduced risk of gum disease (caused by oral bacteria)
  • A comfortable, minimally invasive procedure
  • And more
