Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile because you believe it looks too "gummy"? Many people with excess gum tissue are, so you may be happy to hear that there is an option out there that will make your smile more aesthetically balanced. Gum contouring
can help, as this cosmetic procedure removes extra gum tissue in order to improve the appearance of your smile.
Are You a Candidate for Gum Contouring?
To be a candidate for gum contouring you will need to have healthy gums and teeth, and you will also need to be living with one of the following issues:
||Too much gum tissue. Extra gum tissue will make your smile appear gummy, and gum contouring can remove the excess to leave your smile looking more proportionate.
||An uneven gum line. Gum contouring can sculpt the gum line so that it appears more even.
||Small teeth. Too much gum tissue can make small teeth look even tinier, and gum contouring can help your teeth to appear more appropriately sized.
What Happens During Gum Contouring?
In the past, gum contouring was performed with a scalpel in order to remove excess gum tissue. Fortunately, advances in dental technology have made the process faster and easier than ever before. A soft tissue laser will be used to gently remove a portion of the gums while sealing the tissue simultaneously in order to promote healing and to stop bleeding. The final result is a smile that instantly appears more balanced, and the entire procedure can be completed in a single visit.
