Why Choose Amberly Dental for Cosmetic Gum Reshaping?

How Cosmetic Gum Shaping Can Help

Cosmetic gum shaping, which is also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.”

A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, this is the result of gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape.

Is Cosmetic Gum Shaping Right For You?

If you have a gummy smile or your gumline appears uneven or asymmetrical, cosmetic gum shaping may be a good choice for improving your appearance. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum shaping is right for you. Other options that can help with this issue include dental crowns, veneers, and even teeth whitening in some cases.

How Cosmetic Gum Shaping Works

To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, Dr. Vacek will simply remove a small amount of gum tissue after numbing you, revealing more of the enamel to give your teeth a more balanced and attractive appearance. Cosmetic gum shaping usually requires just one visit to our dental office to get results that will last a lifetime. Modern methods make this procedure very comfortable, and the recovery time is usually only a few days and can be easily managed.
