Some Portland and Clackamas 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 Gresham, Oregon City, and Gladstone residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your Clackamas dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.
Talk to your Portland area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the Clackamas area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
I’m Dr. Brian Westover DMD and Robert Kowal DDS, and I’ve been practicing dentistry in Clackamas since 2011. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my Gresham, Oregon City, and Gladstone patients gain renewed confidence in themselves after undergoing simple cosmetic dentistry procedures.
We are currently accepting new patients, so if you are looking for quality dental care in the Clackamas area, call us today at 503-905-3380 for an appointment!
