What Are The Benefits For Gingival Contouring?

Posted on 2/8/2021 by Arletta, Office Manager
What Are The Benefits For Gingival Contouring?Gingival contouring, or gum contouring, is a special cosmetic procedure for reshaping your gums and helping you achieve that beautiful and confident smile. We do this by cutting away the extra gum tissues that cover too much of your teeth and grafting new gum tissues over places where they have receded too much.

In most cases, however, gum contouring is not covered by medical insurance. Therefore, if you want to have your gums contoured, you may want to know what you are really paying for. In our office, we make sure that every penny you pay for every cosmetic procedure is met with the right quality under our trusted hands.

Cosmetic Benefits of Gingival Contouring

While receding gums tend to be quite normal among the population to some degree, they do sometimes create a less than ideal appearance. Humans have evolved to find beauty in symmetry. Unfortunately, some gums recede to the point at which the gums become anything except for being symmetrical. Using this procedure, we can balance out the different changes in every area of the gums. From what was once asymmetrical, you would find something more beautiful than it ever was.

The Health Benefits of Gingival Contouring

On the other hand, some people with severe periodontitis may benefit from getting a gingival contouring. At the later stages, the receding gums could expose the dental roots to oral bacteria and plaque. To protect them, we graft gum tissues in these areas to cover the roots and prevent plaque from passing through.

If left on its own, the plaque and bacteria could accumulate on the roots, damaging it and causing the rest of the tooth to fall off. During these cases, it may be possible for your insurance provider to cover for your dental fees.
