If you have a “gummy” smile, Dr. Norma Lantzsch provides gum recontouring in Riverside, California. Also known as cosmetic gum shaping, this treatment helps remove excess gum tissues from around the crowns of your teeth, which creates a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Call Premium Smile Care at 951-324-1212 to learn more and meet with our dentist.
Cosmetic gum shaping is also known as crown lengthening. Our dentist may suggest this treatment if you have too much gum tissue, or what is known as a “gummy” smile. This problem can make your teeth appear short or stubby because they are surrounded by too much gum tissue. It can also occur as the result of damage to a tooth that occurs close to the gumline. You may also be a candidate for this treatment if your gumline is uneven.
During a cosmetic gum shaping treatment, our dentist will remove a small amount of gum tissue to reveal more of the tooth and increase the aesthetics of your smile. We can provide you with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable, and in most cases, this treatment can be completed in a single visit to our office.
If you have noticed that you have a gummy smile or an uneven gumline, call our office today and schedule your appointment with our dentist.
