Do you feel like you’d have a better smile if only you weren’t showing so much of your gums? If so, you may be a candidate for gum recontouring.

Some patients are perfectly satisfied with the size, shape and color of their teeth—yet are self-conscious of their gums. Prominent or excessive gum tissue, also known as a “gummy smile,” can cover up a significant portion of the teeth, sometimes causing them to look uneven. This can make the teeth appear short and distract from your smile. With the help of our state-of-art laser technology, our cosmetic dentists can carefully remove excess tissue and recontour the gums so they look proportional and complement the teeth. The result is a more balanced gums-to-teeth ratio, producing the beautiful smile you desire.


 While cosmetic dentistry beautifies the teeth (and sometimes the gums), many treatments have no bearing on the health or function of the teeth. Cosmetic solutions can be combined with each other or with a restorative dentistry treatment to achieve the desired results. If you are unhappy with a particular aesthetic aspect of your smile, and would you like to discuss your concerns with our cosmetic dentists, call Wellbeing Clinic today to request an appointment.
