If your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.
Sometimes teeth emerge abnormally and remain partially covered by the gums. In this case the smile won’t look right because too much of the gums are showing and not enough tooth. This will cause the teeth to appear to be abnormally short and stubby. The teeth are actually perfectly normal and once the excess gum is removed the patient will have a beautiful smile.
The end result of gum contouring is that you’ll have a perfectly balanced smile that you’ll be proud to show off!
