Gum Contouring Treatment in Tweed
At Tweed Dental Care, our dentist offers teeth and gum contouring services to help shape or remove excess gum where necessary.
Many patients have uneven gums or gums that cover a significant portion of their teeth resulting in what is commonly referred to a "gummy" smile, with teeth that appear smaller than they should. This can be due to genetics or even caused by certain prescription medications. At Tweed Dental Care, we offer services to help contour your teeth and gums.
Our dentist can shave away excess tooth material to help reshape and contour the overall appearance of the tooth. Patients can typically expect the tooth shaving process to be completed within a single appointment.
Gum contouring may be recommended as a cosmetic procedure, or to help prepare for other cosmetic work, such as veneers. Contouring your gums, often referred to as a gum lift, involves removing excess gum tissue.
