Understanding the Need for Gum Recontouring
One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. If your gums are not symmetrical or are excessive compared to your teeth, it may prevent you from smiling. Cosmetic dental procedures can fix gummy smiles, enhance symmetry and deliver aesthetically pleasing results.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits, gum contouring also has health advantages. For example, gums that are too low on your teeth trap food particles, resulting in bacteria buildup. This unwanted bacteria can lead to gum irritation, gingivitis, tooth decay and periodontal issues.
Our Gummy Smile Correction Services
The FDNJ doctors will consult with you to discuss the gum reshaping best suited for you or a family member. Typically you only need one visit to complete gum recontouring.
Our dentists will apply a local anesthetic before using a soft-tissue laser or scalpel to sculpt your gum line. The procedure takes less than two hours and it manages a soft tissue issue with a soft tissue solution that is affordable.
The Benefits of Gum Reshaping
Advantages of using the precise, soft-tissue laser include:
- Affordable: Soft tissue issue with a soft tissue solution, as compared to attempting to change the look of a gummy smile with crowns or veneers.
- Minor discomfort and risk: The laser destroys bacteria, minimizing the risk of infection and post-procedure pain.
- Faster recovery time: The precise laser is minimally invasive, resulting in speedy recovery time and enabling you to resume normal activities the same day as your procedure.
