If the shape of your teeth is unappealing, Dr. Stewart may recommend slight tooth reshaping, which involves removing a minimal amount of tooth structure to improve overall appearance. For instance, sharp, jagged, or uneven teeth are ideal for recontouring.
Gum tissue can be recontoured, as well. When teeth appear short and stubby, or too small, due to excessive gum tissue, Dr. Stewart can reduce your gumline, revealing more tooth enamel so your teeth look more natural. Gum recontouring can also make the gumline appear more even and attractive. Changing the appearance of your gums can make a dramatic improvement to your smile.
