If you feel that your teeth are too short, your smile is too “gummy” or that your gum line is uneven, gum contouring, a simple cosmetic treatment might be just right for you.
Your teeth probably are not “too short” at all. In fact, they may be just the right length. You simply may have too much gum tissue covering your teeth and hiding your smile. Crown lengthening “gum contouring” procedures sculpt the gum, revealing the “crown” of the tooth to give your new smile just the right look. If restorations are necessary, this procedure sets the stage allowing your new veneers or crowns to have the correct length and shape, giving you a beautiful new smile.
