What Is Gum Recontouring?

Gum recontouring is a procedure that involves changing the shape of the gums in order to be more aesthetically pleasing. This is usually completed when a patient experiences one of the following cosmetic issues:

  • Excess Gum Tissue: If you have a “gummy smile,” where there is too much gum tissue covering the teeth, gum recontouring can help by removing extra tissue to expose more of the enamel.
  • Uneven Gumline: If there is too much gum coverage in a specific area, gum recontouring can be used to create an even smile.

Is Gum Recontouring Right for You?
