Gum Contouring (Dental Gum Reshaping)

About the process

Even if a person has teeth that are straight, healthy, and symmetrical, the beauty of their smile may be diminished if the gum line is uneven or falls too far below the lip line. Dentists refer to gums that extend too far down as a "gummy" smile. It makes the teeth look small and causes people to feel self-conscious about their smiles. Ideally, the gums should appear even and smooth, and should act as a frame to complement a person's smile, rather than as a distraction from it. Fortunately, a gummy smile can now be corrected with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as gum contouring.

What is the procedure

In the past, patients who were troubled with "gummy" smiles could have the prominence of their gums reduced with a scalpel, which could cause bleeding and an uncomfortable recovery. Laser Gum contouring is a great landmark in dentistry which has made this procedure easy.

To begin the laser gum recontouring process, the patient's mouth is numbed with a local anesthetic to eliminate any discomfort. The dentist will then use a diode laser to gently cut away excess gum tissue and sculpt a more uniform, scalloped gum line. Diode lasers cauterize while they cut, which means less bleeding and a dramatically reduced chance of infection for patients. The entire gum lifting procedure can be completed in just one brief visit to the dentist's office.


Procedure Advantages

The procedure involves laser which means less bleeding and reduced chances of any infection.


Technology involved

With the advent of laser dentistry, and tools such as the diode laser, patients can have their gums sculpted to perfectly accent their smiles in a fast, simple, and virtually painless procedure.
