Some people have teeth that look too short or show to much gum when they smile, typically refered to as”gummy” smile. A procedure called crown lengthening or “gum lift” is often used to remove the excess of gum, and expose the beautiful tooth that is hiding underneath. In fact, your gum line can be carefully sculpted to create just the right proportion between gum and tooth, which will result in a better looking smile. Gum contouring can also make crowns and/or bridges look more natural, leading to an improvement in the aesthetics of your smile.

If the gum is uneven around a tooth, gum contouring can smooth and balance the way your tooth and gum look. This comfortable procedure can help you achieve that natural looking, symmetrical gum line that is aesthetically pleasing.
