Cosmetic gum contouring is a procedure to reshape the gums in your mouth to deliver a better-looking smile. Cosmetic gum contouring is perfect for people that have gums that are uneven or gums that sit too low in the mouth.
The gums are much more important in creating the perfect smile than a lot of people realize, and this procedure is the only way to get the perfect gum to teeth ratio in your beautiful smile.
About Cosmetic Gum Contouring
Gums that sit too low in the mouth give the appearance of having small childish teeth. These low gums are actually covering a significant portion of your teeth to give this appearance of small teeth.
A low gum line is usually caused by genetics, so cosmetic gum contouring is your only treatment option. Removing a portion of the low gums will make your teeth look the appropriate size every time you smile.
Uneven gum lines are easily treated by removing a portion of the gum line to make it even on both sides of the mouth.
Cosmetic gum contouring can be done using various methods. The method used to give you the perfect smile is ultimately determined by each individual case. While all methods have their own advantages, you will get amazing results no matter which one is used.
Once we are ready to perform the procedure, we will give you a localized numbing agent in the gums. This will keep you awake during the procedure, but you will not be able to feel any pain in your mouth.
If you have ever had any dental procedure, then you know exactly what to expect during the cosmetic gum contouring procedure.
After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort in the gums. We can recommend any medication that may need to be taken. To enhance the healing process, you may have to eat a strict diet consisting only of soft and cold foods for a few days.
