If too much gum is covering your teeth, it can cause your smile to look dull, uneven or unattractively small. Gum contouring allows our doctors to gently sculpt your gums to perfect your smile and show your pearly whites to their best advantage. We use a soft tissue laser to reshape the gums and seal the tissue. It is easy and convenient – ask us about gum recontouring at your next visit.
Crown lengthening is a procedure to remove excess gum tissue, to expose more enamel in preparation for restorative or cosmetic procedures such as ceramic crowns or veneers. This allows us to attach restorations such as veneers, crowns, and bridges even when a tooth is broken or worn below the gumline.
