GUM RECONTOURING

Even if a person has teeth that are straight, healthy, and symmetrical, the beauty of their smile may be diminished if the gum line is uneven or falls too far below the lip line. Many dentists refer to gums that extend too far down as a “gummy” smile. It can make the teeth look small and cause people to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smiles. Ideally, the gums should appear even and smooth, and should act as a frame to complement a person’s smile, rather than as a distraction from it. Fortunately, a gummy smile can now be corrected with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as gum contouring.

HOW IT WORKS

Gum reshaping is performed in the offices of most qualified dentists and periodontists. The patient receives a mild local anesthetic to numb the gums, and uses a soft tissue laser to trip away the excess gum tissue. Crown lengthening can help with a “gummy smile,” according to the American Academy of Periodontology. The laser is used to recontour and then seal the tissue to create the ideal shape and prevent ongoing bleeding. The dentist can also use the laser to eradicate hollows that trap bacteria to prevent future infections.
