How Gum Recontouring Works:

During the gum recontouring procedure, our skilled dental professionals use precision techniques to carefully remove excess gum tissue or reshape uneven gum lines. This process can address a range of issues, including:

  • Gummy Smiles: For individuals with excessive gum tissue, gum recontouring can reveal more of the tooth structure, achieving a balanced and proportional smile.
  • Uneven Gumline: Gum recontouring can create a more harmonious appearance by reshaping uneven or asymmetrical gum lines, enhancing smile symmetry.
  • Lengthening Teeth: In some cases, gum tissue might cover a portion of the teeth, making them appear shorter. Gum recontouring can lengthen the visible portion of the teeth, improving their overall appearance.
