What is the Deal With Gum Contouring?

Posted on: February 13th, 2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

There are a variety of reasons why a patient may be unhappy with their smile. Your dentist can help! One of the more common complaints a patient may have about the look of their teeth is the height of their gums. If you have high gums, you may find that your teeth look somewhat small and short.

A variety of things can cause excess gum tissues such as certain medical conditions, medications, developmental gum problems, genetics, and even decay. While any combination of these things could be why you suffer from excess gum tissue, only laser gum surgery and laser gum contouring can fix it.

The main benefit of using laser dentistry is its precision. When using a laser, your cosmetic dentist can accurately and precisely target the areas of your smile that you would like contoured. The laser also comes with the added benefit of easing the inflammation of red, irritated, and inflamed gums. By using the laser on irritated gums, gums actually become more resistant to bacteria.

The best part about laser dentistry is that the treatment causes no bleeding or pain, and allows for a quick recovery. Talk to your dentist to see if laser gum contouring is right for you, and gain confidence in your smile again!
