If you have excess or uneven gum tissue, you may have what is commonly referred to as a “gummy smile.” This aesthetic issue can make your teeth appear short, stubby, and disproportionately small. Fortunately, there are cosmetic treatments available to give you an even, attractive gumline that complements your smile’s natural beauty. We may recommend that you undergo gum recontouring or crown lengthening in Belmont for fast and long-lasting gummy smile correction.

Why Choose the Center for Contemporary Dentistry for Gum Recontouring and Crown Lengthening?

What Are Gum Recontouring & Crown Lengthening?

Gum recontouring may also be referred to as gum contouring or gingivoplasty. It involves the use of minimally invasive techniques to remove extra gum tissue, thereby revealing more of the underlying dental structure. This makes the teeth appear longer and larger.

Gum recontouring is often confused with crown lengthening. However, the procedures are slightly different. Crown lengthening also involves reshaping the gums, but it may also involve altering the bone around a tooth to reveal more of its structure.

We perform gum contouring and crown lengthening with patient comfort at the forefront of our minds. Whether we are modifying the gums near one tooth or several, you can expect us to be as gentle and conservative as possible.
