Articles Reshaping your Smile: Gum Contouring and Cosmetic Bonding
Do you have minor imperfections you wish you could just magic away? Do you have a gummy smile? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Using innovative techniques like gum contouring and cosmetic bonding, we can reshape your smile to make your teeth and gums look gorgeous and ensure you feel comfortable and confident when your smile is on display.
Gum contouring is a procedure, which is used commonly to treat a problem known as a gummy smile. Gum contouring involves reshaping the gums to expose more of the tooth structure when you smile. When you have a gummy smile, you tend to see more of the gums when you smile and this can make the teeth look short and small. By removing tiny pieces of the gum tissue, we can unveil more of the teeth, creating a more balanced and attractive smile. Although a gummy smile won’t cause you any pain or affect your oral health, it can have a negative impact on your confidence. This simple, painless procedure could be just what you need to boost your confidence and ensure that you feel great about your smile.
Cosmetic bonding is a simple, pain-free procedure, which we use to improve the aesthetic of the smile. This treatment provides an excellent solution for patients who have chipped or worn teeth, and it can have an amazing effect on the overall look of the smile. Your dentist will use bonding material known as dental composite to reshape individual teeth, close gaps between the teeth and build up worn edges. The composite is matched to the shade of your tooth and when your dentist is happy with the placement of the composite, they will set it using a curing light. The results are amazing, and this is a much cheaper and faster solution than veneers or braces.
