Is your smile absolutely healthy, but you just don’t like the way it looks? Maybe you have a “gummy” smile, teeth that look shorter than normal, or irregular tooth edges that don’t create a smooth-looking appearance. If so, then you might be an ideal candidate for tooth and gum recontouring.
Naturally Enhance Your Smile
Tooth and gum recontouring is often used to enhance the way your smile looks, without requiring additional dental treatment. It’s often used for:
- Gumlines that are uneven or irregular
- Exposing more healthy tooth structure in a “gummy” smile
- Adjusting the edges of the teeth so that they appear more uniform
- Creating smiles where the teeth look more even
Instant Results in Just One Treatment
Tooth and gum recontouring can typically be completed in just one appointment. The procedure can even be done without the need for anesthesia. Depending on the method used, some dentists prefer using lasers to comfortably recontour the gumlines without any recovery time needed! Patients typically don’t even feel a thing, and the entire process takes just a few minutes. When it comes to recontouring the teeth, the edges of the enamel are re-shaped so that the teeth appear even with one another. In some cases, patients elect to have bonding in areas where gaps or chips in the teeth are more noticeable.
If you’re looking for a dramatic way to improve your smile, or if you’ve always been hiding your smile because you’re ashamed of how it looks, then it’s time to talk to your dentist about tooth and gum recontouring today!
