Gummy smiles affect millions of people. There are multiple reasons you may have this kind of smile. Some people have more gum tissue than others. The size and shape of your teeth can impact how visible they are. The position of your upper lip and your lower jaw can play a role as well. To address your issues with an overly prominent gumline, we have two ways we can help you:

  • Laser Treatment – With a dental laser, we have an efficient method of removing excess periodontal tissue. The laser also seals the remaining tissue. As a result, you should not need sutures after this procedure. The laser also minimizes the time needed to recover from your treatment.
  • Reposition Teeth – Instead of taking away gum tissue, we can move your teeth so they are more visible. In some instances, we may use both options for a more noticeable result.

While this treatment can be effective on its own, you also can make it part of a smile makeover. Consider combining it with other services, such as teeth whitening or tooth bonding.

One of the best things about modern dental care is that it gives you control over your smile. If you want to make a change, you can. If you are interested in gum reshaping in Colorado Springs, CO, we welcome you to visit Schope Dental. Call 719-675-5238 or schedule online now.

Common Questions About Gum Reshaping

What is teeth contouring?

For teeth contouring treatment, your dentist will use specialized instruments to shape and even out your rough or pointy tooth edges. We’ll remove just a small amount of tooth enamel to give you a more appealing smile line. In just one appointment, you can see a noticeable difference in the aesthetic appeal of your teeth and the impact they make on your smile.

What is crown lengthening?

Sometimes crown lengthening, which involves modifying gum tissue to expose more of the white part of your teeth, is strictly for aesthetics. However, it can also make it easier to receive a restoration like a crown or a veneer. In addition, it may be necessary if you have dental decay below your gums. Dr. Schope will adjust your gum tissue to get to the decay.

Is teeth contouring safe?

Yes, teeth contouring is very safe. Dr. Schope will study digital X-rays of your teeth before working on them to know exactly how much tooth enamel can be taken off. Only a small amount of enamel will be removed to make your teeth look their best. When we’re done, your smile will be more uniform, and you’ll have more confidence.
