Transform Your Smile with Gum Contouring From Smiles for Life Dental Care

Are you looking to enhance your smile and boost your confidence? Gum contouring, available at Smiles for Life Dental Care, might be the perfect solution for you.

What is Gum Contouring?

Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to reshape your gum line. Whether you have a “gummy” smile or uneven gums, this treatment can give your teeth a balanced, attractive appearance. The process involves removing excess gum tissue or reshaping existing tissue to reveal more of your teeth. It’s a quick and effective way to transform your smile.

Benefits of Gum Contouring

1. Enhanced Appearance: One of the main reasons people opt for gum contouring is to improve their smile. By creating a more even gum line, your teeth will appear longer and more symmetrical, giving you a naturally beautiful look.

2. Increased Confidence: A great smile can significantly boost your self-esteem. After gum contouring, you’ll feel more confident showing off your smile in social and professional settings.

3. Better Oral Health: Excessive gum tissue can make it difficult to keep your teeth clean, leading to potential oral health issues. Gum contouring can help prevent gum disease and other problems by making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

The Procedure

At Smiles for Life Dental Care, our skilled dentists use advanced technology to perform gum contouring with precision and care. The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: We’ll assess your gum line and discuss your goals to determine the best approach.
  • Preparation: Local anesthesia is applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • Reshaping: Using a laser or scalpel, we’ll carefully remove excess tissue and sculpt your gums to create a more appealing contour.
  • Recovery: Most patients experience minimal discomfort and can resume normal activities within a few days.

Our Smiles for Life Patients Know

That They Can Rely On Us
LaDawn Knicely

Cathy is always amazing. She remembers personal care details about my visit each time which shows me that she is a great listener, she has heard me and follows through with such care.

I had Dr. Whiting for the first time and the practice will be in excellent hands when Dr. McIntire retires in Sept. He was profesional yet had an engaging demeanor when interacting with me. What makes this practice exceptional is the support staff- the welcoming friendliness of the front desk and the business office personnel. In particular, I would like to give high praises to the dental technician, Faith. She is warm, engaging and puts you at ease. She educates you during the whole process and is extremely knowledgeable about the procedures. Without a doubt, this is the best dental practice in the Valley.

Dr. Whiting and staff did an excellent job. They were respectful, professional, and very helpful during the process of getting some dental implants. They expedited my appointments to get my new teeth before Father’s Day. Very happy with the results!

Susan Hairston

Dr. Mac performed a small miracle for me yesterday during my appointment. I was having an issue with my temporary bridge and he squeezed me in with his other patients to fix it. He went to great lengths to help me and I am very grateful. Thank you SFL!!

Dottie Westhafer

I had every intention of shopping around before committing to the extensive dental work I needed. However, after visiting the practice and seeing how dedicated they were to making life changing improvement for their patients, I looked no further. It is a process, starting with evaluations, recommendations, x-rays and scheduling. Beginning with my first appointment I marveled at the kindness, care and professionalism I received. I was taken care of skillfully and gently as we began my transformation. Today, June 6, 2024, I left their office with a beautiful smile without discoloration, wear, and misaligned teeth, and I now have a corrected bite and completely restored teeth that I am proud to show. Dr. Geo is very caring and meticulous, striving to complete his work with skill and perfection. I’m so glad that I came to Smiles For Life.

Smiles for Life has taken care of my dentistry needs for the last 6 years or so. Other offices in the past have had difficult times fitting me in when I needed an appointment. That hasn’t been the case here. Today, I needed to reschedule my appointment for next Monday, and they had an opening today with Cathy Batton instead of my regular hygienist. Cathy does a great job with years of experience and has a way about her to make you feel comfortable.

Linda Clague

Alex, . Morgan, and Dr Geo are very personable and professional. I felt very relaxed the entire visit.I especially appreciated Dr. Geo's careful mouth and teeth exam. They explained everything step by step and allowed time for questions.


On my first visit I meet Becky, we sat down and talked about everything they do there and she allowed me to tell her about my issues with my teeth and she felt that they could help me with my problem. This is the first time I have ever been able to explain, in detail, about my past and present experiences with my dental problems. She made me feel very comfortable in taking about my care and what I would like to have done with my denture issue's. I have set up my next appointment to have x-rays done and feel very good about that! I'm looking forward to my visit and what they have to say about fixing my problem .
