GUM CONTOURING: WHAT IS IT?
One kind of aesthetic procedure that reshapes your teeth is gum contouring. Gum contouring typically benefits individuals with “gummy” grins, or overabundance of gum tissue covering their front teeth. In order to expose more tooth surface, contouring is used to eliminate this extra soft tissue. It may contribute to a smile that seems more even and larger.
WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO GUM CONTOUR?
If your grin is “gummy” or short, gum contouring may be necessary or desired. The process aids in removing extra soft tissue to expose a full, healthy smile underneath. Adults and pediatric patients can both benefit from contouring when necessary. Before undergoing subsequent treatments, such as the placement of a complete dental crown, you might need gum contouring.

To ascertain whether and when you might require professional gum contouring, we conduct an examination. The majority of individuals who require this operation can visit our office in a secure manner.

GUM CONTOURING: WHAT HAPPENS?
Depending on the situation, we start by giving a local or general anesthetic. Next, we employ specialized techniques and tools to extract the extra gum tissue. Depending on your particular demands, stitches could or might not be necessary. To make the gum tissue around the teeth appear even and natural, we meticulously shape it. In roughly a week, your gums will recover, and you’ll have a whiter, more complete smile. We are able to treat adults and children using this technique. We can assess whether gum contouring is necessary for you and, if so, what kind of treatment plan will work best to reveal a broader, healthier smile through a consultation and examination.
