Excess gum tissue can make smiles appear “gummy” and unattractive. Teeth appear shorter, and you may choose to avoid meeting with family, friends, and colleagues because of how self-conscious you feel. With gum recontouring, Dr. Hoop can fix all of that.
This safe and effective process involves removing added tissue located around the teeth to create a balance, more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dr. Hoop uses a dental laser to remove the excess so that it exposes more of your natural teeth, allowing for an even and beautiful smile.
Before you can start to move forward with gum recontouring, it is necessary that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Hoop. During this appointment, he will examine your gumline to determine the extent of recontouring that must occur.
He will also discuss your concerns, questions, and goals when it comes to achieving a more even smile.
