Gum Contouring

When you look at an attractive smile you not only see beautiful teeth but also gum tissue that is symmetrically draped around each tooth. The edge of the gum tissue (gingival margins) should be at the same height for the two front teeth and the two canines.

A common problem is unsymmetrical gum tissue, in that the gingival margins are not at an aesthetic position. The gum tissue could be lower on one front tooth and not the other, thereby; creating the appearance that one tooth is longer than the other.

Sometimes all that may be required is to contour the gum tissue to a more esthetically balanced appearance. This is called a simple cosmetic gum lift; the procedure’s done quickly and painlessly using a laser-like instrument. The tissue heals very quickly with very little discomfort.

The cosmetic gum lift is a remarkably simple cosmetic procedure that can make a tremendous difference to one’s smile. Consult your dentist if you think that you are a candidate for this procedure.

    review rating 5  Dr. Babik is a phenomenal dental professional. I chipped a tooth late Friday night and called his office and left a message about my dilemma and not only did he call me back but he and a staff met me in the office on a Saturday morning to repair my tooth so I could complete my speaking engagement on Sunday morning. His office staff especially his sister and brother enhance their office operations beyond the realms of greatness. Dr. Babik has an incredible chair side manner that puts the most anxious patient at ease.
