What Is Gum Recontouring?

The two most popular methods of gum recontouring are gingivectomy and crown lengthening; both are offered at Madison Dentistry by Dr. Wessell and his dental team, with great expertise.

Gingivectomy- Using a laser or a small, painless incision, a gingivectomy raises or reshapes the gum line.

Crown Lengthening- By changing the level of the gums and bone surrounding a tooth, crown lengthening makes the tooth appear longer.

Patients who have gum recontouring during their appointments experience little to no discomfort! With meticulous planning and attention to detail, Dr. Wessell guarantees predictable results for all gum recontouring procedures. Before your procedure, Dr. Wessell will talk with you about your expectations and treatment objectives.
