If you’ve made cosmetic improvements to your teeth, you’ll be excited to show them off. That may be tougher than it sounds if your gums sit low on your teeth, giving you a “gummy” smile. Fortunately, we can remove excess tissue with Colorado Springs gum reshaping.
We use electrosurgery to alter the appearance of your gums. It uses a high-speed electrical current that cauterizes your tissue during the procedure. Without cutting, it is a quick and comfortable treatment. We’ll numb your gums with local anesthesia first, and you can also receive dental sedation if you’d like.
The cost of gum reshaping varies, depending on the amount of tissue being removed. It obviously costs less to do a single tooth than all of the teeth in the front of your smile. Since gum reshaping is typically considered a strictly cosmetic procedure, it won’t be covered by insurance. We offer payment options such as our Preferred Dental Plan and CareCredit financing.
