Gum contouring is a regularly performed treatment also known as gum reshaping or crown lengthening. It is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to cure a ‘gummy smile’ and improve the general look of your teeth. Having too much gum covering your teeth may be due to genetics, health circumstances or high blood pressure prescriptions.
Gum contouring is a quick and painless dental treatment which can be performed in one visit, leaving you with a bright and healthy smile.
A gummy smile can also be caused from an retracted upper lip, in this case Botox can be used to improve the appearance of your smile without any dental surgery.
