Are you afraid to show off your smile because of too much gum tissue? Our dentist and team can help with cosmetic gum shaping, also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening. A “gummy smile” is the result of gums that cover too much of the crown of the teeth, either because they are bulky or simply come down too far. With cosmetic gum shaping, we will simply remove a small amount of gum tissue and shape the remaining gums to fit your desired smile profile.

This simple treatment typically only takes one visit to our office, and recovery time is short. You will need to be gentle with brushing and flossing until you are fully healed, and our dentist will tell you more when you come in for your appointment.
