“My teeth look short.” “I hate how uneven my smile looks.” These statements are common among individuals living with what is often referred to as a “gummy smile.” When excess tissue surrounds the teeth, it can make an individual’s smile appear unbalanced. Fortunately, there is a solution Dr. Kandov uses to improve appearances. What is it? With gum recontouring, she can easily remove the unnecessary tissue and reshape the gum line to create an even, beautiful aesthetic. If you are ready to make a change to your appearance, contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Why Choose Dr. Olga Kandov for Gum Recontouring?

What is Gum Recontouring?

Gum recontouring is a cosmetic treatment designed to improve the aesthetics of your smile. If excess tissue exists around your teeth giving you a “gummy smile,” Dr. Kandov can use a soft tissue laser and remove the tissue to show more of your natural tooth structure and create an even, balanced appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Gum recontouring is an ideal solution if you:

But it is necessary that you have generally good oral health. This means you must not have any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, as you will need to allow Dr. Kandov to treat these issues first before moving forward with gum recontouring.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Before you can undergo the process of gum recontouring, your cosmetic dentist will need to examine your smile and determine if you are a qualified candidate. If so, she will schedule your procedure.

The process itself is much easier and precise because Dr. Kandov uses a soft tissue laser. Thanks to the improved accuracy, this laser touches only the tissue that needs to be removed and nothing else. Cauterizing as it moves along the gum line, the laser’s precision allows for minimal bleeding and swelling, which ensures you spend less time recovering.

Dr. Kandov will move the laser in such a way that it sculpts and shapes your gum line so that it is even and creates a beautiful, pleasing aesthetic.
