What is gum recontouring?
Some people have beautiful teeth, but their smile is ruined by too much pink gum tissue showing – a “gummy smile”. In gum recontouring we reduce the amount of gum tissue to allow the full beauty of the teeth to show.
How will the dentist correct my “gummy smile”?
Our dental team uses a variety of techniques to reduce the excess gum tissue. When possible, we use our laser to quickly and easily recontour the tissue. We find there is less discomfort with this technique, because the laser seals the tissue as it works, giving faster healing too!
How can gum recontouring make my own teeth look better?
Some people have much of their own beautiful teeth hidden under excess tissue. By revealing the entire tooth, the proper proportion of the tooth is restored. Many people think that it looks like they have gotten veneers – without veneers!
Am I a candidate for gum recontouring procedure?
If your teeth look short, and your smile “gummy” you may be a candidate for recontouring. Not all such cases are best treated by recontouring however. The teeth may be short due to wear , for example. Or your gummy smile can be caused by gum overgrowth due to medications. The White Wolf Dental team here in Port Orange would be happy to evaluate your needs and let you know your options!
