In fact, he is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, giving him specialized training in gum reshaping. All that means that your mouth will be in good hands with us, when you trust your upcoming smile makeover to our team.
So, what is gum reshaping?
It is a special procedure that is also known as a “gummy smile” treatment or gum contouring because it helps when your smile is comprised of more gums than teeth.
Your gums shuold only be showing a little bit when you smile. Your teeth are supposed to be the stars of the show. But when you have a “gummy smile,” you have too much gum tissue covering more of your teeth.
With gum reshaping, the gum-line is gently moved away from your teeth. It is comletely noninvasive sense gum reshaping is performed with one of the latest advances in dental technology: the dental laser.
This soft tissue laser is used to gently remove tiny portions of your gums. In the old days, you’d have to remove excess gum tissue through surgery. By using the laser instead, you’ll have much less bleeding and a faster recovery time.
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of a gum reshaping procedure.
BALANCE OUT YOUR TEETH AND GUMS
When you have a gummy smile, gum reshaping will bring back the balance you want between your teeth and your gums. You won’t have to feel embarrassed about sharing a laugh with friends.
GET READY FOR DENTAL RESTORATIONS
Here’s something most folks never consider: a “gummy smile” can get in the way of some dental restorations. Dental veneers and dental crowns are both made to cover your teeth. However, if your gum-line sits too low, there might not be enough of your teeth available to safely hold onto your veneers or crowns.
Gummy smile treatments with our dental laser can adjust your gum-line so your dental restorations can be successful.
EVEN UP YOUR GUM-LINE
Since your gums play an important role in your smile, you want your gum-line to be straight. With a crooked gum-line, your smile just looks weird. Fortunately, gum reshaping can selectively remove excess gum tissue until that line is straight and even.
BOOST YOUR SELF-ESTEEM
Gum reshaping gets that balance back that you need to look and feel good. Once that has happened, your self-esteem can get a big boost because you’re more confident in how your gorgeous grin plays in public.
