What Is Gum Contouring?
You may have a "gummy smile" if the top portion of your teeth is covered by excessive gum tissue. At Bright Young Smiles, gum contouring is performed to sculpt your smile by removing the excess soft tissue and showing more of the teeth. Not only can gum contouring create a more attractive smile, but it can also improve your dental health by eradicating places where bacteria typically becomes trapped. This reduces your chances of developing gum disease, cavities, and infections. Make an appointment with Dr. Jared Young or Dr. Catherine Young at our office in Lighthouse Point, FL to get more information about gum contouring.
What to Expect from Gum Contouring
Gum contouring is done in our office using local anesthesia. We may offer sedation options if you have anxiety about dental treatments. Prior to the treatment, your teeth and gums will be professionally cleaned. We can then use a laser to remove excess gum tissue and sculpt an even gumline. The laser tool seals the soft tissue for minimal bleeding during the treatment. As soon as your gumline is contoured, we will rinse your mouth so you can see your results. In many cases, the procedure is completed in a single visit. Afterward, we will discuss home care instructions. Your gums may be swollen for a few weeks, but if you follow a proper oral care routine of daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash, your gum tissue will quickly heal.
