What is Gummy Smile Correction?

Gummy smile correction, also known as gum recontouring, is an advanced treatment that improves the appearance of your smile by reshaping your gumline to reveal more of your teeth. It’s a conservative, non-invasive procedure that doesn’t harm your oral health or damage your teeth. Not only does it remove excess oral tissue, but it also allows our team to completely re-frame your smile. It can also aid in the placement of restorations as well!

How Does the Process Work?

Before your treatment, you’ll visit our cosmetic dentist in Edmond, Dr. Smith, who will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you. Once we learn about what your ideal smile would look like and get your medical history, we’ll begin planning your treatment and set up another appointment.

When you come back in to have the gum recontouring procedure done, we’ll use the soft tissue dental laser to remove a small amount of overgrown gum tissue to even out your gumline. Most of the time, depending on your preferences and the amount of tissue we’ll need to remove, the procedure can be completed in one appointment. Afterward, Dr. Smith will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you make a speedy recovery.
