Gum Contouring

Many people have what we call “gummy smiles,” meaning when you smile you see more of your gum than you do your teeth.  This can cause your teeth to look shorter or smaller, when in actuality it is the gums that are larger than normal and not your teeth that are small.  The problem can be caused by different sources, including heredity, but the great news is it can be remedied.

What is gum contouring?

Gum contouring is a simple and painless procedure that can help you gain back your confidence, while also drastically changing your smile.  The doctors at Mint Hill Dentistry will numb your mouth and use special lasers and dental tools to remove your excess tissue and shape your gumline.

You will find your gums heal quickly and there is minor discomfort once the procedure is completed. Our staff will send you home with detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth while it is healing.

Your end result will be a dynamic change in your smile – one that may leave you speechless!
