Gum recontouring, sometimes called gum reshaping or gingival sculpting, is a versatile procedure that serves both cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes, enhancing both the aesthetic appeal and oral health of patients. From a cosmetic perspective, gum recontouring is often sought after to address issues such as a “gummy smile” or uneven gum lines. By carefully sculpting and reshaping the gum tissue, Dr. Jeff DeMercy or Dr. Amanda Kossick can create a harmonious balance between the teeth and gums, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Beyond cosmetic concerns, gum recontouring plays a crucial role in addressing functional and oral health issues. In cases where excessive gum tissue interferes with proper oral hygiene or contributes to the development of periodontal disease, recontouring becomes a therapeutic solution. By removing excess gum tissue, our dentists can facilitate better access for thorough cleaning and reduce the risk of bacterial buildup, promoting overall gum health.

Whether performed for cosmetic enhancement or oral health improvement, gum recontouring is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of laser technology or traditional surgical methods. Patients can expect improved symmetry, enhanced smile aesthetics and a healthier oral environment as a result of this transformative dental treatment.
