Reveal your smile’s beauty with gum contouring

Are you self-conscious about a gummy smile?  If so, gum contouring from Albrecht Family Dentistry in West Bend, Wisconsin, may be the solution. The cosmetic procedure removes excess gum tissue to create a more attractive smile. Not only does gum reshaping improve the appearance of your smile, but it can also improve your oral health by eliminating pockets that can harbor bacteria and increase your risk of gum disease.

What causes uneven gums?

There are many factors that can contribute to having gums that are too low or too high. It can result from genetics, oral health condition, or even certain medications.

The gum contouring procedure

At Albrecht Family Dentistry, we offer laser gum contouring, a highly safe procedure with minimal risk of bleeding or infection. The laser is used to eliminate excess tissue one step at a time to

create the ideal shape. The laser also seals the remaining tissue to prevent bleeding and future infections. The mouth is then cleaned, and you can see your results immediately.
