Learn About Gum Reshaping & Dental Contouring

Do you suffer from misshapen or chipped teeth? Or are your gums prominent in your mouth in a way that affects the overall appearance of your teeth? These problems may not cause you any pain and simply be cosmetic. However, we offer a variety of cosmetic dental solutions to help with your unique needs.

Our Houston cosmetic dentists at Dentiq Dentistry understand the desire to take steps to achieve an attractive, even smile. This is why we offer cosmetic tooth and gum reshaping services, which can be an affordable way to improve perceived flaws.

Gum Reshaping for Excessive & Uneven Gum Lines

Often called a gummy smile, excessive or uneven gum lines can detract from even the prettiest smile. If you are feeling self-conscious about the appearance or feel of your gums, we can provide you with a safe procedure known as gum reshaping in our advanced, modern facility. Our Houston dentists have years of experience providing clients with gum contouring services that leave you with a more balanced looking smile.

Some reasons why you may want gum reshaping:

  • Upper teeth lean too far
  • Too-short upper lip
  • Long upper jawbone
  • Too-short teeth exposing gums
  • Gum disease damaging gums
  • Hyperactive upper lip muscles

Also known as contouring, tooth reshaping is a safe alternative to dental reconstruction or veneers. The process of reshaping your teeth may seem a lot more painful and overwhelming than it really is. Thanks to advances in dental technology, we have perfected this simple procedure to help you get the most out of your treatment. Whether some of your teeth have ridges or do not match the shape and size of others, we can help.
