What is Gum Recontouring?

This will help create a more attractive appearance when you let your grin show. When combined with other procedures, such as porcelain veneers or professional teeth whitening, you can create a beautiful and drastic smile transformation.

After speaking with you about your smile goals, Dr. Lloyd will evaluate your oral health and create a treatment plan to achieve optimal results. During the procedure, our team will administer anesthesia to make sure that you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. Then, we’ll gently etch away excess gum tissue to create a more proportionate-looking grin. After the procedure is complete, we’ll provide you with some aftercare tips to help you make a speedy recovery.

The Benefits of Gum Recontouring

  • Permanent results, because you won’t have to worry about the gum tissue growing back and reversing the results.
  • A noticeable cosmetic improvement—your gums should frame your teeth, not be the center of attention when you smile.
  • Natural-looking results that don’t make it obvious that you’ve had cosmetic dental work done.

How Much Does Gum Recontouring Cost?
