Gum Recontouring

Depending on your smile needs and goals, Dr. Ward Whitaker may recommend gum recontouring in Tampa, Florida, which is often referred to as a gingivectomy, crown lengthening or cosmetic gum shaping. During this treatment, our dentist will remove a small amount of gum tissue to reveal more of your tooth structure. This treatment can help fix a “gummy smile” or an uneven or asymmetrical gumline. Call Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa at 813-876-6930 to learn more and set up an appointment.

Cosmetic gum surgery, which is also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may recommend cosmetic gum surgery. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. Cosmetic gum surgery usually requires just one visit to our office.

If you have a gummy smile or your gumline appears uneven or asymmetrical, cosmetic gum surgery may be a good choice for improving your appearance. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum surgery is right for your smile. Call us today to learn more and schedule your individual consultation!
