Gum Reshaping

Too Much Gum Detracts From Your Beautiful Teeth



Have you always admired people with a beautiful smile? Do your teeth appear to be shorter than average? Is your gum line uneven? Have your gums receded leaving large spaces between the teeth, exposing root surfaces? If any of these gum related concerns prevent you from having a perfect smile, we may have a solution for you.

If your teeth appear to be too short and you've always wanted a "toothy smile," gum lifting or reshaping may be the perfect solution. This procedure can generally be completed in one visit. We will remove a small amount of your gum tissue and contour it to expose more of your teeth. We may choose to use surgical instruments or a laser to complete the procedure. The results are instant and dramatic—showing more of the teeth and a fuller smile. If you're tired of seeing more of your gums than teeth when you smile, ask us if gum reshaping would improve your smile.
