Improve Your Smile With Teeth Contouring & Crown LengtheningDoctor Portocarrero on gum contouring Read Transcript
Some people when they come to see me, they're concerned about the way ... What I hear from them is, “Doctor, can you do anything about my small teeth?” When I look in their mouth sometimes it's not that they have small teeth, it's that they have big gums and the gums are covering their teeth. So there's different ways to get around that, but a lot of times we do what's called gum reshaping or sometimes you'll hear it called crown lengthening. Sometimes it involves just contouring the gums and we can do that. We use a laser in our office. It heals faster, is more comfortable, and it's a way to be able to do that procedure, which is very minimally invasive as compared to old traditional ways. By contouring the gums sometimes you can make your teeth look 30% bigger and sometimes that's all the patient wants to do is just have bigger teeth as opposed to other things. Sometimes it's the gums. It's not the teeth.
Teeth contouring and crown lengthening are cosmetic treatments that improve the shape of your teeth by removing small amounts of enamel or gum tissue. They can be used separately or together to solve a number of smile flaws, including:
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that are disproportionately small or large
- Grooves and pits in the surface of your teeth
With our help, even the smallest flaws in your smile will be a thing of the past! Depending on how many teeth you wish to alter, we may even be able to complete your entire procedure during a single visit!
We will carefully explain every step of the process before we begin so you’ll know exactly what to expect. If there’s any chance of pain or discomfort, we will numb your mouth with an anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing!
To ensure precision, we’ll also thoroughly assess your situation with advanced dental technology – like our digital X-ray system and intraoral camera – before we get to work improving your smile!
