You might have been born with excessive gum tissue that make you look like you have short teeth or a gummy smile, but you don’t have to live with a characteristic that makes you self-conscious. Laser gum recontouring is an innovative dental treatment that eliminates overgrown gum tissue and delivers immediate, dramatic smile makeover results.
If You’re Worried About an Invasive Procedure
It’s understandable to be hesitant about any procedures that involve the gums. The thought of work being done on your gums brings on worries about pain and blood and unpleasantness. Gum recontouring, however, is nothing like this.
Laser gum recontouring is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only a local anesthetic. Most patients don’t experience any pain or discomfort during the treatment. Your Manhattan cosmetic dentist uses sophisticated laser equipment to trim, reshape, and recontour the gums to create a more attractive smile, carefully removing just the right amount of gum tissue.
Downtime Is Negligible
There is barely any downtime after a gum recontouring treatment. Healing, in fact, is usually complete within a few hours so your daily life is barely interrupted. The results from this smile makeover are immediate and permanent and – the best part – this procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete.
An experienced, meticulous cosmetic dentist will be focused on delivering results that flatter the shape of your smile, face, and teeth in no time at all.
The Versatility of Gum Recontouring
Whether you have short teeth or an uneven gum line, laser gum recontouring delivers dramatic results for an instant smile makeover. Cosmetic gum problems include enlarged gums, poorly erupted teeth, short or high upper lip, and an overgrown upper jaw. Also known as “excessive gingival display,” a gummy smile is usually a genetic fact that you cannot alter – unless you opt for gum recontouring.
Improve Your Oral Health with a Gummy Smile Makeover
The aesthetics of gum recontouring are an amazing benefit, but so are the oral health perks. When you are proud of your teeth and gums and how they look, you will take better care of them, keeping your twice annual dental visits and perhaps even discussing cosmetic dentistry enhancements. Gum recontouring is often used in conjunction with procedures like porcelain veneers to elongate the teeth and make them look spectacular for a full smile revamp. Plus, removing all that extra gum tissue makes it easier to take care of your smile.
No two people have the same kind of oral health, and the procedures your Midtown dentist uses to make cosmetic corrections will differ too. The dental laser is carefully calibrated before it is moved around the teeth and used to eliminate gum tissue, so the result is a balanced, symmetrical smile.
