Gum Recontouring in Austin

Cosmetic dentistry covers all sorts of dental problems. There are some patients who may or may not need specific cosmetic improvement made to their teeth, but their gums are actually detracting from their smile. When too much gum is covering the front teeth, they can make the teeth appear much smaller than they actually are. Through the use of gum recontouring at our Austin dental office, those with what is known as a “gummy smile” can enjoy showing off more of their pearly whites. Recontouring safely removes the excess gum tissue and allows for a more natural and elongated looking smile. Contact us today to learn more.

Fixing A Gummy Smile with Recontouring

Gum recontouring has become a common method to correcting a gummy smile. The first step in recontouring is the application of an anesthetic that will numb your gums. Dr. Matthews then uses advanced dental technology to vaporize the overgrown gum tissue to provide for a more natural looking contour. This method is very safe, reliable, and effective and has proven to cause less trauma, bleeding, and an overall quicker healing time. The discomfort during the procedure is also lessened.
