Reducing Overgrown Gum Tissue

For a Shapelier, More Attractive Smile

Do you have short, stubby teeth that make you self-conscious about your smile? Dental treatments won’t address overgrown gum tissue. However, cosmetic dentist Dr. Murray-Curtis often administers gum contouring to remove excess gum tissue and reveal more tooth structure.

What is Gum Contouring?

Contouring means reshaping, and the word has aesthetic undertones. At Silk Dental, Dr. Murray-Curtis suggests gum contouring to make short, stubby-looking teeth appear longer, for a more attractive smile. The procedure involves a surgery, performed by Dr. Murray-Curtis in our Cheshire dental clinic.

What are the Benefits of Gum Contouring?

As anyone with overgrown gum tissue knows, small, short-looking teeth detract from a beautiful face and smile. Gum contouring provides a simple, quick treatment for removing some soft tissue so that more tooth structure shows. The result is teeth that look longer, a more attractive smile, and improved self-confidence.

Am I a Good Candidate for Gum Contouring?

As with any cosmetic treatments, Dr. Murray-Curtis will perform a comprehensive oral health evaluation and may want to see X-rays, as well. He will discuss your expectations and the vision your have for treatment results, then advise you on the best solution.
