Gum Contouring: Enhancing Your Smile's Aesthetic Appeal

Cosmetic gum contouring, also known as crown lengthening, is a periodontal procedure recommended to address “gummy” smiles. A gummy smile occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue covers the teeth, making them appear unusually short or concealed. This excess gum tissue can give the appearance of bulky or overextended gums, affecting the overall aesthetic of your smile. It may also prevent you from being able to receive other treatments, such as a restorative procedure for a damaged tooth. In most cases, the teeth themselves are of normal length and shape, with the issue primarily being the excessive gum tissue obscuring them. If this is the case for you, Dr. Daniel Charlton may recommend a gum contouring procedure to improve your smile and ensure you can receive the care you need.

The Gum Contouring Procedure

This simple cosmetic gum surgery involves the removal of a small amount of excess gum tissue, unveiling more of your tooth structure. This procedure can make a remarkable difference in the appearance of your smile and can usually be completed in just a single visit to Beverly Hills Dental Arts Studio. Our dentist may perform your procedure with a laser, ensuring your comfort as well as a precise, effective and minimally invasive overall treatment.
