Indeed, it can have aesthetic benefits and provide advantages for your oral health. On this page, we explain how gum-trimming procedures (gum contouring and crown lengthening) work and why you might need such a treatment. When you are ready to talk to us about reshaping your gums, contact our friendly, experienced team.

How Much Does Gum Contouring and Crown Lengthening Cost?

During your consultation, we will provide you with a frank estimate on how much we expect your procedure to cost. The price will depend on how much gum tissue we are removing. For example, trimming the gums near one or two teeth will cost less than doing the same thing for three, four, or more teeth.

Keep in mind that dental insurance does not pay for cosmetic treatments. However, you can use financing through CareCredit to break up the cost of your procedure into affordable monthly payments. If you are a member of our Essential Dental plan, you can enjoy 15 percent off the total cost of your gum contouring or crown lengthening.
