What are the benefits of gum contouring and teeth reshaping?

The benefits of laser gum contouring and teeth reshaping can be massive! Reshaping gums can change the appearance of someone's smile without touching the teeth and give someone their confidence back when they smile. Equally teeth contouring can be impactful by evening the edges of the teeth and creating a more consistent smile line.

What is gum contouring and teeth reshaping?

Gum contouring and teeth reshaping are treatments that are used to subtly enhance someone's smile. Laser gum contouring entails your dentist using a very fine laser to 'trim' excess gum which makes your smile more aesthetically pleasing. Many people chooses laser gum contouring if they have what's known as a 'gummy smile'. A gummy smile is when someone's gum extends past the normal point making their teeth appear smaller. While for many, when thinking of a solution for a 'gummy smile', botox is their first thought, however this doesn't have to be the case. Unlike botox, laser gum contouring in a huge majority of cases does not need to be repeated as the gum is very unlikely to grow back.

Teeth reshaping, also known as tooth or dental contouring is often used to even the edges of the teeth or shorten the teeth in appearance. A minimal amount of enamel is removed to protect your natural teeth and ensure they are not damaged. This is done by using an extremely small diamond drill to perfect your tooth edges.
