Do you ever feel embarrassed or ashamed about what you see when you smile? You look at an old picture or watch a video of yourself and think your gums overwhelm your smile and make your teeth look tiny by comparison.
This will probably sound familiar if you have a gummy smile. It’s where you have excess gum tissue that hides too much of your teeth and throws your whole smile out of balance.
Gum reshaping is where your gum line is gently and carefully removed and evened out all along the gum line so more of each tooth is exposed. This helps give your smile a more attractive, balanced look where your teeth and gums are finally in proper proportion to each other.
At Rod Gleave, DMD, that’s exactly what we can do for you!
Here is more about gum reshaping and the kind of benefits it can have for your smile!

What Gum Reshaping Can Do For Your Smile
You can enjoy several advantages to gum reshaping in our Salt Lake City, UT dental office!
*Give Your Teeth & Gums Visual Balance
The difference you’ll notice right away after undergoing gum reshaping treatment with Dr. Gleave is how great your smile looks!
What was once an imbalanced smile where your gums overpower your teeth and make them look too small will now look even and attractively proportioned.
*Make Other Dental Treatments Easier & More Comfortable
Dentistry has come a long way in recent years thanks to advances in technology. What used to be uncomfortable is now a much better experience today.
Despite that, extra gum tissue can make some restorative treatments less desirable options. That’s because there’s not only more opportunity to irritate your gums, but the likelihood of a dental restoration having enough tooth to bond to decreases.
Gum reshaping can be a pathway to other dental treatments you need to have a healthy, attractive smile.
*Give Your Teeth The Attention They Deserve
It’s okay for kids to have small teeth, but for adults, it can be an embarrassing problem with your smile!
That’s what a gummy smile does. It makes your teeth look smaller than they are just because they’re covered up with excess gum tissue.
But Dr. Gleave can reshape your gums by carefully removing some of that extra tissue and exposing more tooth. That way, when you smile, your teeth become the deserved star of the show!
*Get A More Even Gumline
For the same reason a person seeks orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth or tooth bonding to smooth out rough edges, symmetry makes your teeth more attractive. Gum reshaping is just another way Dr. Gleave can give your smile that nice, even look we all want. Without the extra gum tissue that hides your teeth, you can smile knowing that everything looks even and beautiful.
*Feel Better About Yourself
A gummy smile is just one of those things that can be blow to your self-esteem despite being in good oral health. You’re not going to feel confident smiling for pictures or when laughing and talking with others if you know all anyone can pay attention to are your gums.
Dr. Gleave can give your smile balance with gum reshaping so you can love the way you look. It’s a great way to not only enhance your smile’s visual appeal, but it’s an effective way to improve the way you feel about yourself overall.
