Get A More Balanced Smile With Our Gum Contouring Techniques

25 / 11 / 2014

If you have a gummy smile or your smile lacks balance and it’s getting you down, we can help! Gum contouring is a simple, effective procedure, which can make an amazing difference to the aesthetic of the smile.

What is gum contouring?

Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure, which is used to treat a gummy smile. A gummy smile occurs when there is more gum tissue visible when you smile than normal; this means that more of the tooth crown is covered and the teeth look smaller and shorter. A gummy smile is not a medical problem and it doesn’t cause any unpleasant symptoms, such as pain; however, it can make people feel very self-conscious about their looks, especially when their smile is on show.

With gum contouring, we are able to remove tiny pieces of the gum tissue to ensure that more of the tooth crown is visible; this makes the teeth look longer and larger, which increases the balance of the smile and makes it look more attractive.

What does the procedure involve?

We use innovative laser treatment to contour and shape the gums and the procedure is quick and completely painless. We use the laser to gently trim away the excess gum tissue and shape the gums, to produce a more attractive aesthetic. With laser treatment, we are able to shape the gums without any pain and with minimal risk of bleeding or infection; the results are incredible and you can feel much more confident when you smile in future.

If you’re unhappy with the look of your smile and you would like to find out about cosmetic treatments that could help, call us now and book a consultation!
