If you feel like your gums cover too much of your teeth or if some of your teeth look too short, you may consider a procedure called esthetic gum contouring. This procedure removes excess gum tissue, exposing more of the crown of the tooth.
Gum contouring gets rid of the “gummy” smile and evens out the space between your gums and teeth. The gum line becomes symmetrical, natural looking and more pleasing to the eye. Gum contouring can also make crowns, veneers and bridges look more natural.
