How To Use Laser Dentistry To Reshape Gums

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Evan
How To Use Laser Dentistry To Reshape GumsYour gums affect your appearance and can make teeth appear small or uneven. Your gum shape also affects your smile. You can also reshape your gums to improve your facial appearance. Laser dentistry can help reshape your gums with a minimally invasive procedure. The following are ways to reshape gums using lasers:

Excess Tissue Removal

If your gums are low, they will cover a large portion of your teeth, making them look tiny. If the tissue in the gums is too much, it will make the gums too prominent in a smile. Laser dentistry can correct this by removing the excess tissue in the gums. Removing the excess tissue allows your teeth to appear longer and larger. It also reduces the prominence of the gums, making your teeth a more significant part of your smile.

The above procedures have been available for a long time, but they have traditionally been done using metal tools like scalpels. Laser dentistry is less intrusive and more efficient, with better results. Using lasers also means less bleeding from incisions and hence a faster recovery time for patients.

Forge an Even Gumline

Uneven gums are a concern for many people because they make teeth appear unappealing and can lead to oral health issues. Even when teeth have correctly grown, an uneven gumline ruins their appearance. It may also be the case that you get a dental crown, and the gums grow around the root of the crowns. Such growth is more than a cosmetic issue but an oral health issue too. Regardless of the gum tissue, laser dentistry can help forge an even gumline.

The procedure helps reshape gums without profuse bleeding or stitches. There is little pain and quick recovery. If you have the above gum disorders, consider laser dentistry. Kindly reach out to our qualified and trusted dentist for more information.
