Take Away What’s Holding Back Your Smile

Excess enamel or gum tissue can be detrimental to your smile. Fortunately, you can fix either or both of those problems with our cosmetic care. We offer two easy services:

  • Tooth Contouring – This is done on teeth that are overly large or appear misshapen. That can be distracting when you smile. By taking off some enamel, you can change the shape of your teeth. That way, they complement the rest of your smile instead. The process is quick and painless for most patients. We can numb the area with local anesthetic before we start. If you still have any concerns, you can receive sedation.
  • Crown Lengthening – The name of this service is a bit of a misnomer. You aren’t really making your teeth longer. Rather, you make them appear longer by removing some gum tissue. This targeted removal makes the affected teeth easier to see. We use a laser for this treatment so there is no discomfort.

You can magnify the benefits of both of these procedures by combining them with other services for a smile makeover. You may want to get these along with orthodontic care with Invisalign. Removing gum tissue could make it easier to get dental veneers or a dental crown. Eliminating enamel and whitening your teeth can do wonders for your smile. You can feel confident about your teeth!
