Gum Reduction Surgery
Creating a Smile You Will Be Proud Of.
For most people, self-confidence stems from physical appearance and the smile is a critical aspect of one’s appearance. If you have gums that are too large or that cover up a majority of your smile, you may find yourself less inclined to show off your teeth – even if they are in perfect condition. Because your gums define the outline of your teeth, your smile could appear uneven. With gum reduction services and gum contouring, your dentist can create a smile you will be proud of.
At Sheridan Cyrus Dentistry, we offer state-of-the-art cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile and self-confidence. We take the time to understand your needs and formulate a treatment plan based on your goals and overall well-being. The safety and comfort of our patients are always the top priority with Dr. Cyrus and his team.

Why Are My Gums Uneven?
Most often, large or misaligned gums are because of genetics. Sometimes, though, health issues or medications can also alter the appearance of your gums.
What Does Gum Reduction or Gum Contouring Entail?
Gum contouring and reduction is done through laser treatment. The gums are carefully cut away to expose more teeth and create a symmetrical look. If your gums are too high up, your specialist may have to move gum tissue from other parts of the mouth to reshape and create a better gum line for your smile.
First, you will meet with your dentist to see if you are a good candidate for gum reduction or gum contouring. The primary purpose of this type of procedure is to help reshape or reduce the size of your gums so that they accentuate your teeth. Since every individual’s gums are different, your dentist will need to create a customized plan suitable for your mouth.
During the initial consultation, the dentist will discuss what can be done to reduce or re-contour the shape of your gums. If your gums only need a minor treatment, your dentist may be able to perform the procedure. If, however, you have severely misshapen or gums that require extensive work, you will need a periodontist to perform the procedure.
