When you have excess gum tissues that make teeth appear too short, or when uneven areas affect the symmetry of your smile, treatment can help. Our practice provides gum contouring services that carefully remove excess tissue and reshape what remains in order to improve how you look. By performing this work with laser tools, we can make your experience more comfortable and shorten your healing time!
Gum contouring can resolve frustrating problems that you have with uneven or excess periodontal tissues. One way this service helps is by removing materials so that teeth no longer look too short. It can also lead to better smile symmetry by addressing uneven areas. The work is done by our on-site periodontist, who relies on local anesthetic and a diode laser to provide more comfortable care. By reshaping and removing tissues as needed, your gums can be sculpted in a way that improves your overall appearance.
Past or current problems with periodontal health can lead to cosmetic concerns about receding gums. Lengthening the gumline by performing a gum graft can correct the esthetic impact of receding gums, making you more comfortable with the way you look. We can talk to you about making this part of a larger plan to improve the health of your gums.
The work done during a gum contouring procedure can resolve frustrating problems that have robbed you of confidence. By having an on-site periodontist perform this service using laser tools, we can provide a better experience in the dentist’s chair as well as an easier, more comfortable recovery!
