How We Reshape The Gums

When you have too much gum tissue on display, this can make your teeth appear short and uneven. To enjoy a more attractive smile, you need to have these recontoured. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, dentist talks about how we employ advanced laser technology to transform and reshape the gum line in one visit!

The Signs You Need Treatment

As we touched on above, you may notice too much gingival tissue on display, which makes your teeth appear short or uneven. You may feel embarrassed about your appearance, as no amount of teeth whitening can address these cosmetic concerns. Which is why our team may recommend a unique treatment designed to reshape the gum line. To get started, our team will take a close look at your smile to assess the factors behind your excessive gingival display. We then plan the treatment in detail!

The Gum Contouring Process

We will carefully mark the gums that need to be removed or reshaped, and then employ a dental laser to do so. Our team can gently trim away excess tissues and then reshape the line to improve overall symmetry and beauty. The procedure only takes one visit to compete, and many people return to normal activities after only a day of rest. The process can offer a more attractive smile! We can also use the same lasers to treat advanced cases of periodontal disease, by removing the diseased tissues so healthy ones can reattach to the teeth, making the disease more manageable moving forward with preventive treatments. Speaking of contouring, we can also use a cosmetic treatment to recontour the teeth themselves, gently sanding and buffing them to correct the appearance of common cosmetic complaints.

The Benefits of Dental Lasers

The lasers can target the areas with precision to prevent damage to healthy tissues. The technology rarely requires any anesthesia, and the area heals quickly. This advanced technology also reduces the risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection afterward. You can return to your normal routine quickly, and with a smile that makes you feel proud and confident! If you have any questions about how our team diagnoses and treats cosmetic concerns with your smile, or if you would like to schedule a consultation for a gum contouring procedure, then please reach out to our team today! We want to make sure you never hesitate to show your smile to the world again.
