Recontouring (Tooth + Gum)

What is tooth recontouring?

Tooth recontouring is a simple, effective way to improve the look of your smile.

Do you have a small overlap, a chipped tooth or a rough surface in your smile? Would you like to fix it so that you have a better, healthier smile? Tooth recontouring, also called tooth reshaping, is a painless, inexpensive way to improve your smile.

Tooth contouring is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that reshapes damaged teeth.

Recontouring Tooth - Recontouring Gum - Kitsilano DentistThis dental contouring procedure lessens the appearance of overlaps, chips, rough edges and other minor imperfections. Enamel shaping can be combined with bonding or other cosmetic dentistry techniques to further improve the appearance of your smile.

Tooth recontouring is painless because only the top layer of enamel is manipulated. This procedure can create subtle changes with little risk of tooth damage. Imagine not only enhancing your smile, but also ensuring a healthier mouth. That’s what dental contouring can do.

Why gum recontouring?

Gum recontouring is a safe, conventional procedure that restores healthy gums.

Do you have excess gum tissue or diseased gum tissue from periodontal disease? Do you want to improve the health of your teeth and gums? Gum recontouring, also called a gingivectomy, removes excess or diseased gums for a healthier, happier smile.

Gingival contouring is a cosmetic dentistry technique that removes gum tissue.

This gingival shaping procedure reduces pockets of tissue that trap bacteria and put the health of your teeth and gums at risk. It can remove diseased tissue to help gums heal. Shaping and contouring gums can even bring back the brilliance of a youthful smile.

Gum recontouring is gentle. Once the area is numb, we use a special instrument to remove excess or diseased gum tissue. Then we shape the gums to a cosmetically pleasing appearance. The gum sculpting procedure takes no more than an hour to complete at Westcoast Smile Dental Studio. Give your gums about two weeks to heal completely.
