Say Goodbye to a Gummy Smile!

If you want to smile wide but are worried about the appearance of your gums, we can help. As part of our cosmetic dentistry services, we offer gum recontouring services. You might also know this treatment as gum contouring or gum reshaping.

This treatment can:

  • Make your teeth look more pronounced
  • Fix an uneven gum line
  • Give the appearance of evenly shaped teeth

If you’re worried about how your smile looks, especially if you have a wide smile, gum contouring might be for you.

Set a Time That Works For You

You shouldn’t have to take time off work to care for your teeth. That’s why we offer appointment times in the evening or even during the weekend. Call us to set a time that is convenient for you.

What Should I Expect From Gum Recontouring Treatment?

Gum recontouring can sound like an intense procedure, but it’s not. As technology has improved, this treatment is now easy, with a short recovery time and little risk. Here’s what you can expect when coming to Genesis Dental:

  1. We’ll talk you through the entire process and make sure this treatment is the right option for you before we even start.
  2. We’ll apply an anesthetic, much like getting a cavity filling, so you won’t feel anything during the process. If you do feel any discomfort, let us know and we’ll help make you feel more comfortable.
  3. We’ll use a laser or a scalpel to gently cut away the excess tissue. We use soft-tissue lasers when we can because they immediately close the gums, so it heals faster and shortens any recovery time.

Once we’re done you may experience some sensitivity for a few days, but after that the treatment is finished. There’s nothing you need to do to maintain the treatment, just your usual oral hygiene routine. That’s it!

Want Even More Care for Your Smile?

Gum contouring can be paired with our other cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening. Rely on us to take good care of your teeth and help you smile with confidence.
