Cosmetic Dentistry: Gum Contouring In Lake Ozark

If you are a regular visitor to our blog here at Premier Dental & Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark, you have probably read many articles on cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Dental bonding, crowns, and porcelain veneers can take care of teeth that are chipped, broken, or misshapen.

People with stained or dull teeth can have a sparkly white smile with teeth whitening. For ordinary cavities, there are tooth-colored fillings, inlays, and onlays.

Dental implants are gaining popularity among those who want to restore missing teeth. If your teeth are misaligned, there are a number of orthodontic options.

What if your cosmetic dental problem has to do with your gums? Do your gums appear too long, too short, or uneven? There is a solution for gum problems as well. The answer is gum contouring surgery.

With gum contouring, sometimes called tissue sculpting or gum reshaping, a Lake Ozark dentist or periodontist can improve the shape or size of your gums.

Gum reshaping is not always a cosmetic procedure. If the gums have receded to a point where the tooth root is susceptible to decay, gum surgery can restore the natural, healthy gumline and protect tooth root and bone.
