Beautiful smiles are not just about straight, white teeth. Aesthetics come when both the teeth and gums are properly proportioned and balanced together. Do you have a “gummy” smile? Soft tissue recontouring is a procedure that restores this proportion to your smile. Soft tissue recontouring may seem like an invasive procedure, but through our use of advanced technology and techniques, it is very much the opposite, providing patients with comfortable and convenient experiences with rarely any downtime. With our expertise and artistry, we can rebalance your smile and transform a “gummy” smile into one of vibrant beauty! As a cosmetic dentist with over thirty years of experience, Dr. Nicholas Shubin is skilled in the artistry involved in soft tissue recontouring to provide the most attractive results for each patient’s unique smile.
A “gummy” smile may only be aesthetically displeasing, without any functional or health issues needing to be addressed. Aesthetic gum recontouring reshapes the gum tissue around each tooth into a more balanced arch to expose more visible tooth, improving overall proper gum-to-tooth proportion. Dr. Shubin is an active member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, remaining on the forefront of advanced, less invasive techniques to help provide more comfortable treatment at his San Juan Capistrano, CA office. Using these tools and resources, he provides beautiful smiles through custom care for each patient.
Crown lengthening procedures improve the appearance of the entire smile, giving patients a more natural and aesthetic look, without causing major discomfort. Soft tissue recontouring as a gummy smile treatment is driven by your unique smile goals and how you desire your smile to appear cosmetically once treatment is complete. Dr. Shubin takes great pride in ensuring each of his patient’s smiles not only function correctly, but are symmetrical and balanced, harmonizing beautifully with the face. Whether you need soft tissue recontouring to restore health or improve aesthetics, our treatment is convenient and safe, providing you with an enhanced and attractive smile you’ll be proud to show off!
