Teeth that are partially covered by excessive or uneven gums can appear short, stubby, or unnatural, resulting in a “gummy” smile.  For patients with overabundant gum tissue, Morgan Dentistry is able to perform a procedure called gingival recontouring, in which this surplus tissue is safely and comfortably removed to reveal more of the tooth.

Gingival recontouring proportions the gums with respect to the teeth, making teeth appear longer while maintaining a healthy amount of gingival tissue at the base. This procedure is most often performed in conjunction with another cosmetic enhancement, such as porcelain veneers or crowns to improve the over-all aesthetic outcome. You will emerge from these procedures with an even, natural looking gum that complements your beautiful new smile.
