DENTAL GUM RESHAPING
Gum Contouring in Shyam Nagar
WHY IS IT DONE?
If gums extend too far down then that is referred as a "gummy" smile. The beauty of a smile is diminished if the gum line is uneven or falls too far below the lip line. It makes the teeth look small and causes people to feel self-conscious about 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.
Gummy smile can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as Gum Contouring.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Nowadays, laser technology is used to do gum contouring, which has made the procedure a lot easier compared to past when scalpels were used to reduce the gums.
A local anesthesia is used to numb the patient's mouth before the procedure to eliminate any possible discomfort= The dentist will then use a diode laser to gently cut away excess gum tissue and sculpt a more uniform, scalloped gum line. Diode lasers cauterize while they cut, which means less bleeding and a dramatically reduced chance of infection for patients.
The entire gum lifting procedure can be completed in just one brief visit to the dentist's office.
