Some people have teeth that look too “short” due to the relationship between their teeth and gums. This creates a “gummy” smile. Gum contouring is often used to remove excess gum tissue and expose more of the crown of the tooth. The gum margins can be carefully sculpted to create just the right proportion between gum tissue and tooth surface. The result is a better looking smile. If the gum is uneven around a tooth, gum contouring can smooth and balance the way your tooth and gum look. The procedure produces a consistent, even gum line that is esthetically pleasing.

Welcome To Acharya Periodontics
What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
Diagnosis and Management
A thorough examination and accurate, specific diagnosis is the foundation of effective treatment.
Very often, early stages of periodontal disease are effectively treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy.
When necessary, Dr. Acharya and her team can walk you through a surgical treatment plan to restore healthy gums and teeth.
Dental implants are a common procedure of permanently replacing missing teeth without affecting other neighboring teeth.
