Modifying the shape of your gums can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Brett M. Barney at Desert Dental Group is proud to offer patients a solution with cosmetic gum shaping in Tucson and throughout the areas of Vail, Eastside Tucson, and Rita Ranch. We look forward to meeting you!

Is Gum Contouring Right for You?

Cosmetic gum surgery, which can also be known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape.

How Gum Contouring Surgery Works

To correct the problem of excessive gum tissue and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may recommend cosmetic gum surgery. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. Cosmetic gum surgery usually requires just one visit to our office.

Gum contouring can also address cosmetic issues such as:

  • An uneven gum line that gives the appearance of misaligned teeth
  • Swollen, red, or inflamed gums

Call Desert Dental Group Today

If you have a gummy smile, or you want to address any other aesthetic concerns, cosmetic gum surgery may be a good choice for improving the appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum surgery is right for your smile.
