Gum Contouring

Getting a beautiful smile does not always mean fixing your teeth. The gums are an important part of your smile, and Dr. Roger Wirtz offers ways to improve their appearance. Contact us at 601-982-5349 to plan a gum contouring in Jackson, Mississippi. Our dentist can help you plan this treatment and discover a beautiful smile.

Cosmetic gum surgery, which is also known as gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a simple treatment we may recommend if your appearance is affected by what is sometimes called a “gummy smile.” A gummy smile is one in which the teeth appear abnormally short because of excessive gum tissue. The gum tissue may appear too bulky, or it might look like the gums come down over your teeth too far. In most cases, a gummy smile is the result of excessive gum tissue covering teeth that are a normal length and shape. To correct this problem and give you a smile you can show off with pride, our dentist may recommend cosmetic gum surgery. During this treatment, we will simply remove a small amount of the gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and giving your smile a more aesthetic appearance. Cosmetic gum surgery usually requires just one visit to our office.

If you have a gummy smile or your gum line appears uneven or asymmetrical, cosmetic gum surgery may be a good choice for improving your appearance. Our dentist will help you determine whether cosmetic gum surgery is right for your smile. Call us today to learn more and schedule your individual consultation!

If you’re feeling somewhat self-conscious about your teeth, or just want to improve your smile, cosmetic dental treatments may be the answer to a more beautiful, confident smile.

Cosmetic dentistry has become very popular in the last several years, not only due to the many advances in cosmetic dental procedures and materials available today, but also because patients are becoming more and more focused on improving their overall health. This includes dental prevention and having a healthier, whiter, more radiant smile.

With many state-of-the-art dental treatments and prevention options available in dentistry today, there are fewer reasons for having to extract (remove) teeth. When something does go wrong with a tooth, we try to do everything possible to restore the tooth to its original function. Removing a tooth is the last option because we know that removal may lead to severe and costly dental and cosmetic problems if the tooth is not replaced.
