During your consultation with Dr. Lopez, you can discuss the goals you have for your smile and determine whether or not gum recontouring is the best solution for you. This procedure is often ideal for patients who:

  • Are self-conscious about the appearance of a “gummy” smile.
  • Have a gumline that is uneven.
  • Have teeth that appear small due to an excess of gum tissue.

Cost of Gum Recontouring

The cost of this treatment varies depending on how extensive it is. For instance, reshaping the gums near one or two teeth will cost less than addressing the teeth around numerous teeth. During your initial consultation, we will discuss the cost of your treatment based on your unique needs. If your treatment is purely for cosmetic purposes, it’s unlikely that dental insurance will cover it, so you may want to consider other financing options.
