Some San Diego and San Diego 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 Hillcrest, Mission Hills, and Bankers Hill residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your San Diego dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.
Talk to your San Diego area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the San Diego area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
I’m Dr. Marcos Ortega, and I’ve been practicing dentistry in San Diego since 1986. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my Hillcrest, Mission Hills, and Bankers Hill 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 San Diego area, call us today at 619-717-8459 for an appointment!
