What is the Gum Reshaping Procedure?
Having a beautiful smile offers several benefits. Aside from cosmetic reasons, it can help elevate self-esteem and improve our emotional health. When you have troubles with your gums, you might be a candidate for a gum contouring surgery, also known as gum reshaping. This dental procedure will even out your gum line, making it possible for you to smile without those insecurities.
Gum reshaping is done with a laser to trim and shape uneven gum tissues and make your gums appear more proportional to your teeth. It is a very straightforward solution for your dental needs and even done on an outpatient basis, requiring just one office visit. This procedure consumes only a little time and has been proven effective.
How Will I Know If I am a Candidate for Gum Reshaping?
When your gums are covering too much of your teeth, it will make your teeth appear smaller. There are different factors that cause this, such as heredity, a health problem, or certain medications. On the other hand, if you are suffering from gum recession which is characterized by the showing of larger portions of your teeth than your gums, you are more prone to tooth decay and tooth loss. Gum recession can also be a sign of you have periodontal disease, which is the deterioration of your teeth’s support. This can make your teeth weak and sensitive. If you are suffering from either of the two ailments, then you should visit us right away.
Is Gum Reshaping Necessary?
Gum reshaping is a procedure that falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. However, the benefits you can get from it can truly change the way you interact with others through your appearance. Enhancing your self-esteem and giving you a more positive outlook on life is something gum reshaping can offer you. In some cases, our patients undergo gum reshaping in connection with certain periodontal procedures.
