Gingival re-contouring

Periodontal procedures are also used to improve appearance, enhance your smile, and prepare teeth for restorative or cosmetic dentistry. Your periodontist can improve a “gummy” smile by correcting gingival contours and reducing excessive gums. Teeth that appear short, may actually be the proper length, but are covered with excessive gingival tissue. To correct this, your periodontist performs gingival re-contouring, a periodontal plastic surgery procedure, to improve the appearance of your teeth.
