Gum Recontouring at Delight Dental Spa

Woman with a beautiful smileWhen you smile, what do you notice first? If it’s short, uneven teeth or a “gummy” smile, you may be wondering what types of cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you feel better about your smile’s appearance.

Fortunately, there’s a solution: gum recontouring.

What Is Gum Recontouring?

Soft tissue lasers allow us to provide quick gummy smile treatment in a comfortable, efficient manner. Rather than using more aggressive gum surgery techniques that require invasive procedures and a lengthy healing time, we can accurately and gently recreate a new gumline contour to frame your healthy teeth.

Local anaesthetic may not even be necessary. If it is, we will use The Wand®’s painless anaesthetic application to numb the area of your gum that is being adjusted.

As excess tissues are gently layered away, you’ll be left with fuller, larger tooth surfaces being exposed.

When to Consider Gum Rejuvenation

  • You have a “gummy” smile
  • Your teeth look too short
  • The gumlines are uneven, making teeth look lopsided
  • Hormonal changes or medications have caused tissue overgrowth
  • As part of your smile makeover, to accent other cosmetic treatments

Advantages of Soft Tissue Laser Contouring

The gentlest and least-invasive treatment for gummy smiles is to see a dentist that uses a soft tissue laser. Thanks to this technology, we’re able to provide the least-invasive recontouring experience with little to no recovery time needed. Most of our patients will go about their normal routine immediately following their procedure or by the next day.

Because lasers gently stop the bleeding as the gums are recontoured, you’ll experience less irritation and swelling than conventional gum surgery. Being that inflammation is the primary cause of pain, soft tissue lasers eliminate the source of potential discomfort.
