Gum Contouring

Gum contouring is a dental procedure that involves reshaping the gumline to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. It is typically performed to correct a “gummy smile” or to create a more proportionate gumline.

During the gum contouring procedure, our dentist in Miami, FL, uses various techniques to remove or reshape the excess gum tissue. As our dentistry believes in a holistic approach and we focus on overall development, that’s why we conduct the procedure using laser technology. This is minimally invasive, not painful and helps to precisely trim or shape the gums. The goal is to create a more balanced and symmetrical gumline that complements the teeth and enhances the overall appearance of the smile.

What does gum contouring treats?

Here are some reasons why individuals opt for gum contouring:

  • Gum contouring is commonly performed to address a gummy smile, where a larger portion of the gums is visible when smiling- by removing excess gum tissue and exposing more of the teeth, gum contouring helps to create a more proportionate smile.
  • Some people may have an uneven gumline, where the gum tissue is higher or lower in certain areas, creating an asymmetrical appearanc- the procedure can reshape the gumline to create a smoother and more balanced contour.
  • In some cases, excessive gum tissue can make the teeth appear smaller than they actually are- by removing the excess gum tissue, gum contouring can make the teeth look longer and more proportionate, improving the overall harmony of the smile.
  • Gum contouring may also be performed in preparation for dental restorations, such as veneers or crowns- by reshaping the gumline, the dental restorations can be placed in a more ideal position, creating a more natural and aesthetic result.
