Gum Reshaping

NYC Gum Reshaping Serving Manhattan & New York, NY

Some people have a gummy smile, as their gums are either too high or too low on their teeth. The solution to this problem is a gum reshaping, also known as gum lift, gum contouring or tissue sculpting. Gum reshaping is a cosmetic dental procedure that can provide you with the smile that you always wanted to have by leveling the uneven gum line. Gum-line contouring allows the reshaping of your gum volume.

How Gum Recontouring Enhances Your Smile?

Our expert cosmetic dentists, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Flores reshape gum tissues by using laser dentistry with the purpose of providing their patients a charming smile. The candidates for the gum lift procedure find many reasons for seeking out cosmetic dentistry. These unhappy reasons are listed below:

  • Excessive or bulging gum tissue surrounding your teeth
  • Excessive gum tissue shows when you smile
  • Teeth that look too short to be fit in the mouth
  • Uneven gum line

In addition to the nice teeth, a symmetrical gum line along with an aesthetically pleasing ratio of gum-to-tooth might play a vital role in defining a beautiful and charming smile. Sometimes, the gum tissues cover the teeth partially and this surplus gum can be removed by the cosmetic dentists to reveal your hidden teeth, generating the correct proportion for your smile.

Another common problem is the asymmetry of gum tissue where only one or two teeth have a lower gum line with rest of the teeth perfect in your smile. This problem takes away the beauty of your smile as it is highly distracting. In order to bring the ratio of gum-to-tooth closer to ideal to make the whole smile look better, the gum lines of these teeth will be evened out.

My past experience haven’t been that great b/c the past dentists Ive had were so money hungry but Dr. Lee was very honest and reasonable. Her staff was so friendly and personable. I think I just found my permanent dentist.”
