Enhancing Your Smile

Dazzling Impact: Gum Sculpting

Gum Sculpting Services
Do you have a gummy smile? Or an uneven or asymmetrical gum line? If so, Dr. Snow can resculpt your gums to improve the way they frame your teeth—and that can make a big difference in how you feel about your smile.

Dr. Snow can sculpt the gums using:

  • Tissue modification techniques that can recontour the shape of the surrounding gums—some teeth often without incisions or stitches and with almost no discomfort following the procedure.
  • Orthodontic tooth repositioning, which encourages the surrounding gum tissues to conform to the change in tooth position as well.
Did you know … ?
If your gum line appears to be out of position, the underlying bone may out of position as well.

Many dentists use laser to recontour the gum. While lasers can be effective in removing small amounts of gum tissue, the procedure often encroaches on an important seal around the tooth, and the gum tissue will simply grow back.

Dr. Snow analyzes the gum and bone height around each tooth in order to develop an effective treatment protocol that will create beautiful and predictable long-term results when reshaping the gums that frame the front teeth.
