Helping Patients Achieve An Attractive Smile
Do you have an uneven gum line or feel your teeth look too “short”? Commonly known as a “gummy” smile, this excess of gum tissue leaves many patients embarrassed to show their teeth when they smile. One of the simplest ways we can reverse the appearance of a gummy smile is through soft tissue recontouring, an effective procedure that can be accomplished in one appointment.
Soft tissue recontouring can improve the appearance of the smile by creating symmetry between the teeth and gums and balancing out the gum line. This cosmetic crown lengthening can provide patients with a more harmonious tooth-to-gum ratio and improve their smile aesthetics for a stunning, confident new look! Our exprienced dentists offer soft tissue recontouring for patients desiring a more attractive smile and for those who may need more restorative care to treat decay underneath the gum tissue.
Types Of Soft Tissue Recontouring
- Aesthetic crown lengthening removes excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth crowns and increase their aesthetic appeal.
- Functional crown lengthening removes gum tissue to expose damage or decay on the tooth crowns for proper restorative treatment.
