Did you know that it takes LESS effort to smile than to frown?
It’s a FACT! Frowning requires a shocking 50 muscles… while producing a smile only needs 13.
However, when you have a “gummy smile”, your mouth most likely isn’t getting a work out at all.
Are you looking for a way to enhance the appearance of your smile?
For some, gum contouring is an effective solution. However, given the astronomical cost of the procedure versus how little it does in return may leave you seeking a more affordable and effective solution.
Let’s take a look at what gum contouring is, what to expect before and after the procedure, and a stunning alternative that can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Is Gum Contouring?
Prior to the procedure, the dentist will use a local anesthesia to numb the area. Next, the dentist will fix the uneven gum line by removing the excess gum tissue as needed and then sculpt the gum line with a laser or other cutting tool until it appears even and natural.
This process exposes a little more of the enamel of the teeth and can usually be done in one office visit.
Also known as gum lifting, gum contouring is a relatively painless procedure. While some people do experience discomfort and swelling for the first few days after the procedure, the healing time is typically quick.
Now that you know what gum contouring is, let’s take a closer look at what gum contouring can and can’t DO.
Gum Contouring Before and After
Gum contouring is able to offer slight changes in your smile’s appearance. However, gum contouring CAN’T completely alter and transform your smile, especially if you have misaligned, crooked, cracked, chipped, or stained teeth.
Here are the changes you can expect from having a gum contouring procedure:
Excessive gum tissue
Uneven gum lines
Stubby or small tooth shape
Balanced gum tissue
Even and natural gum lines
Attractive tooth shape
A more symmetrical smile
Immediate, yet minor, results
These behind the scenes photos can give you an idea about the changes to expect. Please be aware that results can alter dramatically depending on your condition as well as who performs the surgery:
Next, let’s look at the cost of this procedure to see if it’s even worth it.
How much is gum contouring?
Unfortunately, gum contouring can cost $50 to $350 to shape and remove the gum around a SINGLE tooth. The price range is so vast because the cost depends on:
- Extent of the work needed
- Local rates
- Expertise and reputation of the dentist
- Sedation method
The damage or overgrowth rarely is limited to just one tooth. Therefore the total costs for extensive gum reshaping and contouring for the visible teeth in the front can easily cost $3,000 or MORE!
Luckily, there is an easier and more affordable way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
