Gum Recontouring in Houston
Patients with prominent gum tissue may be candidates for a gum recontouring procedure. This treatment corrects “gummy” smiles by reshaping the gum tissue to expose more of the tooth enamel. While gum recontouring is generally performed for aesthetic purposes, there are some circumstances where the procedure can benefit other oral health issues. This process creates a more balanced ratio of tooth to gums, and can even shrink the gum pockets, which benefits patients with periodontal issues.
In some cases, we can correct gum tissue recession or trim gum tissue that has grown over the crown. As with all our surgical procedures, your comfort is a top priority, and you’ll know exactly what to expect. We’re ready to help you get a more even smile that you’re proud of.
