Understanding the purpose of gum recontouring procedures

istock 936967024 Most patients who strive to achieve the perfect smile may think the teeth are the only aspect to consider. This couldn’t be more false! Not only do the teeth play a role in the overall appearance of the smile, but the gums do, too! The gums frame your smile and balance with the teeth to create the best proportion. They should be healthy in shape and color, and should create a proper line that is balanced with the shape and size of the teeth. However, patients who have an uneven gumline, or even those with a “gummy smile,” have options to help. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Georgetown, patients can ask about gum recontouring procedures.

What is involved in gum recontouring?

Gum recontouring is a common aesthetic procedure done to harmonize the balance between the gums and the teeth. The procedure is often done by removing or adding gum tissue where it is needed for a more cosmetic appearance. Drs. Mark Duncan and Mandy Holley of Georgetown, TX utilize a special soft-tissue laser device to create the best contours for the patient’s unique and individual smile. The procedure is done with proper anesthetics to ensure patients are comfortable throughout their procedure, and our team can achieve the results in just one appointment. Patients love the ability to enhance their smile in a way they never before thought possible with gum recontouring treatments.
