Have you heard of gum reshaping? Does your gum line look uneven? Too low so you have a gummy smile? Do your teeth look uneven because of your gums? Sometimes people don’t realise what it is that they don’t like about their smile and it can be the shape and position of their gums. Gum reshaping at Evolve Dentistry can help you achieve the smile you are looking for. Carried out in one visit, this treatment will give you instant results.
Gum reshaping alters the gum line edge, changing the shape to make improve your smile. The shape of your gums can affect the look of your teeth, making them appear too small, big or uneven.
Gum shaping can be used to fix a “gummy smile”, caused where too much gum covers the teeth, making the teeth appear small. Gums can also recede at different rates, giving you an uneven gum line. Laser gum shaping at Evolve can adjust this to give you an even, balanced edge between your teeth and gums.
Laser gum shaping is a simple, straightforward procedure that usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes. After a consultation with one of our dentists to discuss what you are hoping to achieve, the dentist will make sure that your gums are numb and then use a soft tissue laser to gently remove the excess gum tissue to create the shape you are looking for.
The recovery time for laser gum shaping will depend on the extent of the treatment you’ve received. However, most people will feel fully recovered in a day or two. It’s important to be careful what you eat whilst your gums are heeling, avoid crunch or hard foods that irritate the gums as this could impact recovery time.
