Some Anchorage dental patients who are interested in a full smile makeover might want to consider gum contouring. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is helpful for people who feel that their gums rest too low or too high on their teeth.
If you feel that your gums cover too much of the surface of your teeth, it may seem that your teeth are too small and out of proportion with your mouth. For Anchorage area residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your cosmetic dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to gum disease.
Talk to your Anchorage area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
I’m Dr. Kirk Johnson, and I’ve been practicing cosmetic and restorative dentistry in Anchorage since 1987. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my Anchorage area patients gain renewed confidence in themselves after undergoing simple cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, as well as gum contouring can all have a dramatic effect on a person’s appearance.
We are currently accepting new patients, so if you are looking for quality dental care in the Anchorage area, call us today at (907) 349-0022 for an appointment!
