The right amount of gum tissue is key to having a healthy smile, but too much gum tissue can cause problems as well. This condition, sometimes called a gummy smile, can make brushing and flossing difficult, and the appearance of your smile can be affected. At Smiles by Hale, our dentist and team offer cosmetic gum contouring in Naples, Florida. We invite you call 239-593-0880 to schedule your visit with Dr. Thomas Hale.
Cosmetic contouring is a service designed to improve the shape of your teeth and enhance the overall appearance of your smile. In the cosmetic tooth contouring procedure, our dentist and team remove small amounts of tooth enamel, which is the protective outer layer of the tooth. By making careful changes to the shape of the enamel, we correct cosmetic dental flaws and give your smile a more attractive appearance. In certain cases, we may recommend combining cosmetic contouring with dental bonding to achieve optimal results. Our team is typically able to complete cosmetic contouring in just one visit to our office, so you can achieve a more beautiful smile after a single appointment!
We may suggest cosmetic tooth contouring in order to make minor aesthetic changes to the size, length, surface or shape of your teeth. Tooth contouring can be used to correct:
- Slight tooth overlapping
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Teeth that appear too long or too large
- Dips, bumps or other imperfections on the tooth surface
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Adjacent teeth of unequal length
- Teeth that look too pointed
Tooth contouring is a great choice for patients who are interested in making subtle changes to their smile to achieve a more inviting aesthetic. If you think cosmetic contouring may be the solution you need to enhance your smile, we welcome you to call or visit our office today. We are eager to help you reach all of your goals for your smile!
