Some Birmingham, MI and Royal Oak 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 Birmingham MI residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your family dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.
Talk to your family dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the Royal Oak area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
I’m Dr. Larry Duffield, and I’ve been practicing dentistry in Royal Oak since 1990. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my patients gain renewed confidence in themselves after undergoing simple cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, as well as gum contouring can all have a dramatic effect on a person’s appearance.
We are currently accepting new patients, so if you are looking for quality dental care in the Royal Oak area, call us today at (248) 541-1388 for an appointment!
