- Posted on: Nov 30 2021
If you have visibly small teeth or are concerned about a “gummy smile,” you may wonder what can be done to improve the balance in your smile between teeth and gum tissue. Dr. Lenny Slepchik is a downtown Montreal dentist who can help with a process known as gum contouring.
What is gum contouring?
Gum contouring is a dental treatment that is used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of a smile that might have too much gum tissue visible to the eye. This may cause you to have a gummy smile, while others may feel they have what appears to be small teeth due to excess gum tissue. By removing this excess tissue, the appearance of the teeth is lengthened and there is better balance between the gums and teeth for a harmonious and attractive smile.
How does gum contouring work?
Gum contouring is specifically done for cosmetic purposes. It is performed on the teeth near the front of the smile. Using our laser, gum contouring is comfortable and usually completed in just one visit. He will remove gum tissue or reshape the gumline to create that beautiful smile you have always wanted. This treatment may cause some patients to experience some sensitivity and tenderness in the gums after this procedure, but most patients find that over-the-counter pain medication and anti-inflammatories will provide comfort.
