Some Decatur and Decatur dental patients who are interested in a full smile makeover might want to consider gum contouring. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is helpful for people who feel that their gums rest too low or too high on their teeth.
If you feel that your gums cover too much of the surface of your teeth, it may seem that your teeth are too small and out of proportion with your mouth. For North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your Decatur dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.
Talk to your Decatur area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the Decatur area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
