Even Out Your Tooth-To-Gum Ratio With a Gum Reshaping

Many people consider a smile “gummy” when three or four millimeters of gumline shows when you smile. While having an excess of gum tissue doesn’t bother everyone, if it bothers you, it can make you uncomfortable when showing off your pearly whites. During your consultation, your dentist will review the process of obtaining a more even smile. They will also discuss your overall goals to ensure this treatment is right for you.

This cosmetic treatment works well if you want to:

  • Improve Your Smile’s Appearance – You deserve to feel confident when you smile. A gummy smile procedure can help do that for you, especially if you have felt self-conscious about revealing excessive gum tissue.
  • Prepare for Veneers or Crowns – Removing excess gum tissue isn’t just for cosmetic reasons. It’s also sometimes done in preparation for veneers or crowns. Revealing more of your tooth enamel will get you one step closer to receiving these  smile-enhancing treatments.
  • Boost Dental Health – There are also hygienic reasons for removing gum tissue. Reducing the amount of gums can improve your dental health and lower your risk for periodontal disease.

If your dentist determines this is an ideal solution for your needs, they will remove the excess gum tissue gently and precisely. We’ll numb your mouth so you don’t feel a thing. However, sedation is available if you need help feeling calm and relaxed.
