If you are unhappy with your uneven gums, our dentists can use Nashua gum reshaping to remove excess gum tissue and give you a gorgeous gumline. We can also correct a “gummy smile” by exposing more of your smile’s surface, giving you a better balance between gums and teeth.Dr. Kiehl of Nashua Family Dentistry on Gum Reshaping Read Transcript
We have a periodontist on our staff here who does that on occasion as well. Again, similar issues if a patient maybe feels like they're showing too much gum when they smile we can recontour the gums back. And again. Sometimes that's just done alone or in conjunction with a cosmetic procedure like a crown or veneer. And. Oftentimes by showing more tooth structure, patient feels more confident in their smile.
To improve our patient care, our doctors employ dental technology whenever they can. A good example is lasers, which have revolutionized many dental procedures. Laser treatment offers many advantages over traditional gum surgery, including:
- Less Discomfort. Most patients will not even require anesthesia for a gum reshaping treatment. Though if you would like us to numb the area before we begin, we’re happy to do so. You’ll experience less tenderness following the procedure, too.
- Less Treatment Time. Reshaping gums with a scalpel often requires multiple office visits. With the Solea® laser, the entire gum reshaping treatment can be completed in just one visit.
- Faster Recovery. Because the laser cauterizes tissue as we work, no stitches are required. Not only that, but there is little chance of infection following your procedure.
Your Comfort Tops Our List of Priorities
Although using lasers helps ensure you’ll remain comfortable as we reshape your gums, we’re happy to give you a little additional pampering. Our team offers amenities that include:
- Cozy pillows to relax your head and neck
- Warm blankets for your total comfort
- Relaxing music so you can take your mind off dentistry
- Oral conscious sedation for a totally relaxing dental visit
