At our dental office in Erlanger, we take pride in offering comprehensive dental treatments that focus on every detail of your smile makeover. Dr. Darlene Sand Wall, our Erlanger cosmetic dentist, will explain how gum contouring can give you the smile makeover of your dreams.
Correcting Gummy Smiles
Your gum tissue is often overlooked as a significant aspect of your smile. After all, your gum tissue frames your teeth, creating a certain look for your smile and the individual teeth. Uneven gums can make even a straight smile appear disproportionate. Gummy smile involves excessive gingival display. This can make your teeth appear too small or juvenile. In addition, gummy smiles can make individual teeth look misshapen.

Gum contouring, also called a gum lift, involves reshaping your gum line to make your teeth proportionate to your smile. The ideal smile will show as little gum tissue as possible when you smile.

Although July is halfway over, summer is still going strong. With all of the excitement of vacations and beaches and summer celebrations, you may not have had time to invest in your smile as you had hoped. Erlanger, Kentucky cosmetic dentist Dr. Darlene Sand Wall has you covered with a variety of cosmetic dentistry options to help you achieve the perfect smile you’ve dreamed of before the summer’s over.
Your teeth do not require anything dramatic to become stained or slightly discolored. Consuming certain foods and dark-colored beverages, including coffee, tea, wine, and soda, can exacerbate the staining of your teeth. Even the smallest discoloration can throw a perfect smile slightly off. Luckily, tooth whitening is a simple but effective cosmetic dental procedure. With our at-home teeth whitening system, you can apply the treatment in the comfort of your own home and noticeably brighten your smile after just 10-14 days. (more…)
