Reveal an Attractive & Healthy Gumline

A cosmetic gum surgery procedure involves reshaping the gumline so it looks more attractive. It’s often done to:

  • Prepare for Crowns or Veneers – Patients with teeth that appear too short may need a reshaping procedure. It’s often recommended if you are getting crowns or veneers. Your dentist will gently remove a bit of gum tissue, exposing more of the surface of your teeth. After a time of healing, you can move forward with your veneers or crowns procedure.
  • Even Out Your Gumline –  An uneven gumline can occur for numerous reasons. Gum disease, aggressive brushing, and lifestyle factors like smoking can lead to this problem. Your dentist can reposition or gently remove some tissue to give your gums a more appealing and even look.
  • Reveal More Teeth Than Gums – If you have a “gummy” smile, your dentist can remove excess gum tissue. This will give you a more even tooth-to-gum ratio. You’ll be able to reveal more of your pearly whites when you smile and avoid feeling self-conscious.

No matter the reason for your procedure, your dentist will review everything involved before moving forward. Your mouth will be numbed, so you remain completely comfortable and pain-free. You can also receive sedation if you are nervous or worried about discomfort. Your dentist will provide aftercare instructions to ensure your healing process goes smoothly.

After your gums have healed, you may be interested in cosmetic dentistry treatments like teeth whitening or Bioclear to give your smile an even more polished look.
