Not Happy With Your Gums? Ask About Contouring In Wilson

People who are interested in a full smile makeover might want to consider gum contouring, from Wilson Dental Group. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is helpful for anyone who feels that their gums rest too low or too high on their teeth.

If you feel that your gums cover too much of the surface of your teeth, it may seem that your teeth are too small and out of proportion with your mouth. Conversely, if your gums cover only a small part of the teeth, your teeth may seem too long.

Gum contouring may help with your appearance, but one of our dentists will perform a careful exam first, to see if it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.

Whatever the reason may be, you’ll have to be extra-gentle for a few weeks when you brush and floss your teeth. That way you’ll avoid irritating sensitive tissue, which might bleed or become infected if you’re too rough. Cleaning them after the procedure, though, is as important as it is cleaning them the rest of the time.

At Wilson Dental Group we offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup and cleaning with us today.
