Gum Recontouring

All Teeth Whitening Is Not Created Equal

Your Dentist in Heath, Forney, Rockwall & surrounding areas

Sometimes when you feel self-conscious about your smile, it’s not your teeth that are bothering you. In reality, it’s how your gums make your teeth look. Uneven or excessive gum tissue can cover your healthy smile, making teeth appear uneven and short.Changes such as medications or being pregnant, can make some people develop an overgrowth of gum tissues that detract from their previously beautiful smile! Fortunately, we have effective options to help – starting with gum contouring.

Why Consider Gum Recontouring?
You may want to consider gingival recontouring at our Heath, Forney, Rockwall dental practice if you have:
  • A “Gummy” smile
  • Teeth that look short or uneven
  • Gingival overgrowth due to medication
  • Hormonal changes affecting your gum tissues
  • Upcoming cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers
By revealing more of the healthy tooth structure underneath, you’ll be able to enjoy a brighter and bigger smile, with teeth that are proportionate against one another.
Crown Lengthening
Another type of gum recontouring is a therapeutic procedure known as crown lengthening. This soft tissue treatment is one we typically use in combination with dental crown treatments or for managing gum disease. It’s used to reveal a larger surface area and shorten the gum “pocket” around each tooth, making your smile easier to clean and care for.
Fast Results
Gum recontouring is something that only takes our Heath, Forney, Rockwall cosmetic dentist one appointment to complete. With advanced technology like soft tissue lasers, we can perform your procedure in a comfortable manner with little to no recovery time! In fact, lasers make it so that you won’t experience any swelling, bleeding, or need sutures of any kind. It’s that quick and predictable!
