Not every cosmetic dental procedure makes changes to your tooth structure to improve your smile. Gum contouring treatment corrects periodontal tissues that hurt your appearance by reshaping and removing excess tissues as needed to make the appropriate improvements. This service can help those who feel their smile is less attractive because their teeth appear short or squat. It can also help when you have bumpy or uneven areas that stand out and interfere with your smile symmetry. In addition to offering cosmetic benefits, this work can offer benefits such as a lower risk for gum disease, bad breath, and other problems.
Dr. Browne will closely review your smile to see what changes to the periodontal tissues will help you look more attractive. Excess tissues that cover too much of your tooth structure can be conservatively removed to lengthen teeth and make them look more attractive. We can also reshape or smooth out any unsightly areas.
While many people can enjoy full improvement from this one service, others may choose to combine it with additional cosmetic work. For instance, you may choose to follow gum contouring with teeth whitening treatment in order to make your smile brighter as well as more uniform!
Through gum contouring treatment, our practice is capable of improving your smile by lengthening teeth and reshaping tissues that give an awkward, asymmetrical appearance. If you would like to learn more about how we are able to change your appearance in this way, call our Prairie Village, KS dental office at (913) 901-8585.
