Gum tissue is an integral part of your smile. Healthy gums should be a soft pink shade, housing and protecting your enamel. The Aurora cosmetic dentists at Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center perform state-of-the-art gum contouring to help patients improve their smile. Dr. Yaros, Dr. Zeppelin, and Dr. Augustine cater to Aurora and Denver patients who are unhappy with their excessive gum tissue.
Creating a Balanced Smile
Gum contouring removes excess gum tissue to achieve symmetry. Performed here in our Aurora office, gentle gum contouring is a minor cosmetic dentistry procedure that is accomplished using laser technology. We perform gum contouring with a special tool that reshapes the gum tissue using safe electrical stimulation.
This gum reduction process reveals more of your natural enamel for a brighter, more dynamic smile. Gum shaping may be used to minimize gum tissue on one tooth or several teeth, depending on your needs. At our Aurora general dental office, we make it easy to get your gums reshaped in our comfortable treatment environment.
Is Gum Contouring Right For You?
If your teeth appear different lengths, or the gum tissue on one side of your smile does not match the level of your gum tissue on the other side of your smile, gum contouring may be right for you. Short teeth can be “lengthened” with the reduction of gum tissue, showing more of your white, attractive enamel.
Gum contouring is a great complementary procedure for a variety of other smile makeover treatments, including porcelain veneers and dental bonding.
