Gum Recontouring

When gum tissues appear more prominent than your teeth, it can cause your smile to look unbalanced or disproportionate. For some people, unhealthy gums may appear red and irritated. Gum reshaping or gum recontouring offers Indiana cosmetic dentistry patients an innovative way to change the look of their overly “gummy” smiles.

Also referred to as gingival contouring, the gum recontouring procedure can help you get noticeable results in a painless, laser-driven process.

A simple solution that can dramatically improve your smile

Before the invention of the soft-tissue laser, gum reshaping required cutting or surgical removal. Now, with help from state-of-the-art laser technology, the removal of gum tissue is painless and the healing process is comparatively very quick. The result is an even and balanced gum appearance.

Here is a short summary of what you can expect during gum reshaping at Deldar Dental:

  • Dr. Deldar will give you a local anesthetic to numb the gum tissue.
  • Using precise measurements for the standard height of healthy or normal gum tissue, Dr. Deldar will vaporize your excess gum tissue using the targeted soft-tissue laser.
  • In some cases, Dr. Deldar will need to remove a small amount of bone tissue to prevent the gum tissue from growing back.
  • After the treatment, you will notice a more symmetrical gum shape that will perfectly frame your teeth.
