What is a gummy smile?
A gummy smile is an aesthetic problem that occurs when an excessive amount of gum tissue is visible when you smile. A gummy smile usually makes the teeth look smaller. With a gummy smile there are no painful symptoms, but many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smile and this often has a major bearing on the way they feel.
About the gum contouring procedure
Gum contouring is a cosmetic technique designed to provide a solution for a gummy smile. The aim of the procedure is to reshape the gums to make more of the tooth crowns visible and improve the overall look and balance of the smile. We use the latest techniques to gently trim away tiny pieces of the gum tissue to expose more of the tooth crown. This makes the teeth look longer and larger and enhances the overall aesthetic of the smile.
We perform gum reshaping in a single session and it is a comfortable and quick procedure.
