Gum Contouring

Cosmetic Gum Contouring

Your smile is made of more than just your teeth, and when your gums are uneven or cover too much of your tooth structure, it can affect the symmetry of your entire smile. There are several reasons for uneven gum tissues, from congenital issues to certain types of illnesses and medications. However, correcting a gummy smile is often quicker and simpler than you might realize. Cosmetic gum contouring is the process of gently and carefully reshaping asymmetrical gum tissues to create a more even, more attractive gum line to frame your smile. Depending on your specific needs, gum contouring can be performed as a stand-alone cosmetic procedure, or it may be one part of a more comprehensive smile makeover plan.

If an uneven gum line is affecting your smile’s appearance, then cosmetic gum contouring can help you correct it. To find out if you could benefit from the procedure, call our dental office in Del Mar, California, today at 858-755-0187.
