Complete smile rejuvenation through an advanced method of gum re-shaping. For teeth that have covering by gum tissue our dental consultants can alter the appearance of your gum line for good, exposing more of the tooth surface creating an outstanding end result.
Excess growth of gums can have a real effect on how your smile is formed and we understand this can in turn have a real effect your confidence. An unbalanced expression or ‘gummy smile’ can be reversed through the re-contouring procedure resulting in a perfectly natural smile allowing you to be happy and confident in your appearance.
How it works:
As with all of our treatments at The Square Advanced Dental Care we begin with an in-depth consultation with you, the patient. We will discuss all aspects of the treatment plan to make sure the decided approach is the best for you. The procedure begins with a local anaesthetic to numb the gum area and ensure the experience is pain free. We use a special laser to remove the necessary gum tissue and seal the area for improved and more comfortable healing. There is some discomfort to be expected once the procedure is complete but this is for a short time only and can be controlled easily with painkillers.
In some circumstances the re-contouring process involves the removal of some bone to allow for optimum gum shape and the re-contouring is carried out in conjunction with crowns or veneers to complete the process for an outstanding end result.
