Gum Contouring with our Dentists

Most patients focus on teeth whitening or porcelain veneers to improve their smiles. However, the shape and appearance of your gums also impacts your smile. Gum contouring (or gum reshaping a.k.a esthetic crown lengthening or gingivectomy depending on the case) solves this problem. If your gums have overgrown and you have a “gummy smile”, or your lip is positioned quite high and you show too much gum, we can do variety of treatments to address that: from using a low-grade pulsing laser to painless remove the excess gums to performing a mini-surgery and lifting up the gum line significantly. And if your gums are showing to have receded and having the opposite issue, our dentists may use one of several techniques to add tissue to the area.

Alternatively, Botox can be used to address gummy-smile as well. We can go over that with you during the consultation.

Before we begin any gum contouring, we always take time to thoroughly assess your goals and oral health. We then plan your gum contouring in conjunction with any other dental treatment you might have planned. Finally, after the procedure our cosmetic dentists and staff will teach you how to best care for your new gums. After all, we want you to preserve your beautiful new smile.

Your Gum Contouring could be 20% Off

Even the best dental insurance plans don’t reimburse anything for cosmetic dentistry, including gum contouring. The dentists at Soothing Dental think that’s ridiculous. You pay good money for dental insurance and you should get something out of it. Whereas we at Soothing Dental can’t change the insurance industry, we can change dentistry. Therefore, we boldly offer our Soothing Dental Membership Plans. These straight-forward plans discount your gum contouring up to 20%–and much more.
