Gum contouring can be a complimentary service with other dental treatments, helping to optimize the appearance and health of your smile. Whether the gums cover too much of the surface of your teeth or you have an uneven gum line due to gum recession, our experienced team at Glen Perio 2.0 can discuss your treatment options to determine if gum contouring is the right solution for your needs.
While many general dentists and periodontists can offer this treatment, it is best to choose an expert who has specialized skills and experience with gum contouring. The surgery will be performed in the dental office, with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. A soft diet is recommended during recovery, and it is important to follow the dentist’s instructions regarding brushing and flossing.
