Gum Lifts and Contouring in St. Louis, MO

Gum lifts and contouring are advanced cosmetic dental procedures aimed at improving the appearance of your smile by changing the size and shape of your gums. This treatment is ideal for individuals who feel their smile is overshadowed by excessive gum tissue or for those whose gum line is uneven, making teeth appear too short or uneven. Dentists can reveal more of the tooth’s surface by carefully removing or reshaping the gum tissue, improving your smile’s aesthetic appeal. This procedure can treat various issues, including gummy smiles, uneven gum lines, and the effects of gum recession. Suitable for anyone looking to improve their smile’s appearance, results are typically visible immediately after the swelling subsides, with the final shape of the gums settling in a few weeks. Long-term results can vary but often last several years, depending on individual gum health and care.
