Is gum contouring right for me?
Often, the key to a healthy, beautiful smile is in treating more than just your teeth. The shape and health of your gum tissue plays a big role in your smile’s appearance. There are two main reasons to opt for gum contouring treatment: having too much gum, or not enough.
People with ‘gummy smiles’ (gum tissue that extends down over the enamel of their teeth) are perfect candidates for gum contouring treatment. We can remove the excess gum tissue so that the word can see your beautiful teeth.
Likewise, if you have receding gum lines from periodontal disease, aggressive brushing or even just genetics, we can redistribute your gum tissue so that the roots of your teeth are protected against bacteria and plaque. This can help to prevent future bone loss and other serious oral health issues.
