Gum Contouring in Houston, TX
Many factors come together to create a perfect smile. Healthy pink gums form a stark contrast to the white teeth, framing their appearance. Gums wrap around the neck of each tooth in a scalloped fashion. Variations in texture, thickness, height, and color tone can influence the appearance of the gums serving their vital supporting role.
Sometimes, one small area of gum can detract from an otherwise pleasant smile. The scalloped flow may be uneven or a thick area may protrude unnaturally and cause a visual distraction.
Just as art benefits from re-framing, gums can be contoured to complement the smile. Fortunately, laser technology makes this procedure quick, painless, and dramatic. Results can be observed immediately, and after a few days of healing, your gums look perfectly natural. In some cases, more extensive contouring may be discussed. Drs. Nimri and Zingalis will evaluate numerous factors before deciding which approach will give you the finest smile.
