Gum Contouring

Be proud of your smile

Perfect your smile with gum reshaping

Are you not loving your smile because of overly visible gums? If so, gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, might be the answer! This cosmetic dental procedure can help even out an uneven gum line and give you a beautiful smile you can be proud of.

What is Crown Lengthening?

Crown lengthening is a common dental procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue to expose more of a tooth’s surface. It can be performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons.

Aesthetic Benefits

Cough lengthening can create a more balanced and pleasing appearance for patients with a “gummy” smile, where excessive gum tissue covers much of the teeth. By reshaping the gum line, we can help your teeth look longer and more proportionate, enhancing the beauty of your smile.

Functional Benefits

Crown lengthening is also essential for preparing a tooth for a dental crown or other restorative procedures. When a tooth is broken or decayed below the gum line, it can be difficult to place a crown properly. By exposing more of the tooth structure, crown lengthening provides the necessary access to ensure a secure and effective restoration.

Getting Crown Lengthening in Lancaster

At AV Dental Wellness Group, we make the process of getting crown lengthening straightforward and comfortable. Here’s what you can expect:

  1. Consultation: During your initial visit, our skilled dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine if crown lengthening is the right solution for you. We’ll also discuss your goals and address any concerns you may have.
  2. Treatment Plan: If you decide to proceed with crown lengthening, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
  3. Procedure: The actual procedure involves removing excess gum tissue and reshaping the gum line using advanced techniques and tools to minimize discomfort.
  4. Recovery: After the procedure, we’ll provide detailed instructions on how to care for your gums as they heal. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days.

Will Insurance Pay for Gum Contouring?

Insurance coverage for gum recontouring (also referred to as gummy smile treatment or crown lengthening) depends on the type of procedure and the insurance provider. Most insurance companies will cover some portion of the cost of gum recontouring if it is deemed medically necessary. For example, if the procedure is being done to correct a bite issue or to protect your teeth from periodontal disease, most insurance companies will provide at least partial coverage. However, if the gum recontouring is being done to correct a cosmetic issue such as a gummy smile, it is unlikely that your insurance provider will pay for it. AV Dental Wellness Group will be sure to check with your insurance provider before scheduling your procedure.
