Most people spend their summers enjoying extra time outdoors, and more importantly quality face-to-face time with friends and loved ones. From family reunions to exotic vacations, the activities don’t matter nearly as much as the memories being made the company being shared. That said, if you want to make sure your smile is ready for the gatherings, and the subsequent photo ops, now is a great time to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. In many cases, cosmetic dental treatment can be completed quickly, allowing you to enjoy a smile you’ll feel be proud to show off all summer long, and beyond!

Gum Contouring Can Help Create a More Beautiful Smile

Sometimes the cause of cosmetic concern isn’t the teeth at all, it’s the gums. Overly “gummy” smiles are common, especially as people age, as gum tissue can begin to grow excessively causing the teeth to appear smaller than they are. Asymmetries in the gumline are also common, and can make the teeth seem misshapen.

Gum contouring is a wonderful way to address excessive gum tissue. By carefully sculpting the tissue, a skilled cosmetic dentist, or in some cases an oral surgeon or a periodontist, can reveal more of the teeth and recreate a younger-looking, more even-looking gumline.

Could Treatments Be Combined?

Sometimes the best and most effective way to achieve a dream smile is by combining a number of cosmetic treatments, as part of a customized smile makeover. Don’t be afraid to discuss your options with your dentist, before settling on a treatment plan that can help you achieve a more beautiful smile.
