Gum Contouring
In certain individuals, smiling reveals a large portion of their gums in comparison to the teeth. A smile like this is referred to as a “gummy smile” and can be improved with gum contouring surgery. In this procedure, the gums are trimmed back and contoured, to reduce the look of a gummy smile. The crowns of the teeth may also be lengthened to produce a smile that reveals mostly the teeth and less of the gums.
