What is Gum Recontouring?
If you have straight, white teeth but feel that your smile shows too much of your gums or if you have an uneven gum line, the Bismarck cosmetic dentists at Deeter Dental can help you correct the issue. Our talented and experienced team offers gum recontouring to reshape your gums and highlight your smile.
Importance of Your Gum Line
A crooked gum line or gums which cover up too much of your teeth’s surface can make your smile look lopsided or reserved. Gum recontouring removes a portion of your gums to create an even gum line that compliments the size and shape of your teeth. A corrected gum line can make your smile look straighter and can even change others’ perception of you.
Your gum line is so important in the overall aesthetics of your smile that we recommend gum recontouring to most of our smile makeover patients.
Gum Recontouring Process
Deeter Dental uses soft tissue lasers to reshape your gums. We have chosen to use the Odyssey diode laser by Ivoclar due to its consistent, high quality results. The Odyssey laser is considered a “cool” laser because it does not produce the feeling of heat or scorch the tissues it interacts with.
When you first meet with our dentists, we will discuss the shape, outcome, and expectations of your gum recontouring procedure. Then, we will use anesthetic to your gums and use the laser to gently sculpt and shape your gum line in order to accentuate your smile.
Only patients with healthy gum tissue are good candidates for gum recontouring. If your gum tissue is unhealthy, we may recommend that you undergo periodontics treatment before you undergo gum recontouring.
