Those affected by high gum lines are often self-conscious and reluctant to show their true smile. Our aim is to make our patients look and feel more confident through innovative procedures like Gummy Smile Contouring.

You should never hesitate to show off your smile! If you’re feeling self-conscious about a gummy smile, a Dawson Dental dentist can help in just a few short visits.

A gummy smile is when excess gum tissue is apparent when a person smiles. Gummy smiles are very common and through gum contouring treatment, we can help reveal your beautiful teeth and smile.

Many people with “gummy” smiles are unaware of the treatments available to cosmetically enhance the look of your gums.


What is gum contouring?

Gum contouring or gummy smile correction is the removal of excess gum tissue that is covering your teeth. It is used to fix the following dental concerns:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Uneven lengths
  • Uneven ridges
  • Uneven grooves
  • Inflamed, or swollen gums

Gum contouring is often completed in conjunction with porcelain dental veneers for an ideal smile transformation and symmetry.

With the addition of beautiful porcelain veneers, your gummy smile disappears, revealing a bright, youthful smile that looks natural and proportioned. The entire process takes just a few visits.

If you are somewhat apprehensive about visiting the dentist, we offer sedation dentistry options for your level of anxiety.
