Gum Reshaping & Gummy Smile Treatment Can Beautify Your Smile
Are your healthy and aligned teeth being hidden by an unusually high gum line? You may also feel self-conscious because of an uneven or low gum line. We completely understand, as gum issues can dramatically affect the appearance of your teeth.Dr. Newingham on Gum Reshaping Read Transcript
We have several options for you when we need to reshape your gums. Let’s say you have some recession and your gum tissue is receding up the side of your root and either you don’t like the look of it or it’s sensitive when you brush it or you’re starting to make a notch in the side of that root. We have options for you where we refer you to a specialist and that specialist can bring down that gum tissue.
Sometimes there’s situations where we’re trying to correct your smile and correct what you see when you’re talking in the mirror to see what’s visible. Sometimes we have some teeth on this side that are shorter than the teeth on this side or vice versa or your gums just aren’t a symmetric shape. When we’re doing that cosmetic evaluation we can talk about moving your gum tissues up to the correct, you know, the ideal dimensions, because we have an educational background in that. We can reset the gum tissues for you to give you that aesthetic look that you’re looking for.
Dr. Newingham and our talented Newingham Dental Center staff can help you with gummy smile treatment and gum reshaping. You can finally show off those beautiful pearly whites that have been hidden for way too long!

Comfortably Correcting Your Gums
Fortunately, most gum lines can be corrected through gum reshaping or contouring. This is a simple procedure that we can perform to remove the excess gum tissue and expose the beautiful teeth that were hidden underneath.
When you come to us for gum reshaping, Dr. Newingham will examine your mouth and determine where your ideal gum line should be. So that you can understand exactly what we will do, we will take pictures of your teeth and show you where we will be moving the gum line.
For the procedure, we will:
- Apply a little anesthetic, so that you can remain completely comfortable
- Closely examine where your gum tissue connects to the bone
- Adjust your gum line by removing the hard tissue under your gums for the best results
In a few days, your gums will completely heal, and you’ll be able to enjoy your stunning new smile!
For extreme cases of gum recession, we work closely with a skilled specialist to reshape your gums and give you a balanced smile again.
