Some San Diego and La Mesa 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 Alpine, Jamul, and Santee residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your La Mesa dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.
Talk to your San Diego area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the La Mesa area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.
I’m Dr. Jeff Gray, and I’ve been practicing dentistry in La Mesa since 1986. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my Alpine, Jamul, and Santee 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 La Mesa area, call us today at (619) 717-8560 for an appointment!
