Excessive or Uneven Gums Treatment
When we talk about cosmetic dentistry, the vast majority of patients focus primarily on the shape, uniformity, and color of the teeth. What many of them do not take into account is the importance of the gums in the aesthetics of the smile. Having excessive or uneven gums can make perfect teeth look short, stubby, and ugly. If we correct these gum issues, we can boost the natural beauty of our smile and improve the overall appearance of the patient.
Gum Recontouring Treatment
Gum recontouring by itself is considered to be a cosmetic dental treatment. This happens because in most cases, it is performed for purely cosmetic reasons. In spite of this, certain people choose to give this treatment a go as part of a more complex periodontal procedure, such as a crown lengthening, a reduction of periodontal pockets, or regenerative gum techniques.
Gum recontouring treatment must be carried out in your dentist’s office. Your Pasadena dentist will be responsible for using modern technology to remove excess gum tissue, revitalizing the patient's smile again. These techniques allow for performing a precise modeling of the gum on each tooth. These techniques have plenty of advantages when compared to other traditional surgical procedures.
Gum Recontouring Advantages
- Greater comfort for the patient in treatment
- Faster recovery
- Less bleeding
- Higher precision to preserve a greater part of natural tissues
