Are you self-conscious about your smile? Do you refer to your smile as “gummy” or disproportionate? Gum lifting or contouring may be a great solution to remedy your concerns.At Atria Dental® in Gordon, we provide gum lifting and contouring in our studio as part of our cosmetic dentistry procedures. A permanent and relatively affordable solution, our experienced and friendly dental specialists will make you feel at ease as we reshape or remove your gums in our chair, creating a smile you’ll be proud to show off.
A gum lift, also known as gum contouring or crown lengthening, is a permanent cosmetic procedure used to reshape the surrounding tissue around your teeth. For some patients, it may involve removing the underlying bone or reshaping the gum tissue. This treatment can be performed surgically or by laser, and is carried out under sedation.During your initial consultation at Atria Dental®, our dentists will assess your mouth and discuss your concerns and goals. We will offer a tailored solution to meet your needs. We know that any cosmetic procedure can cause anxiety, which is why our dentists will help you feel at ease by understanding your apprehensions and answering any questions you may have about sleep dentistry alternatives.
If you think your gums are too high or too low and it’s preventing you from smiling confidently with your teeth, then you may benefit from a gum lift.
Here are just some things you can look forward to with a gum lift or contouring:
When you have a gum lift or gum contouring procedure, you will be given a sedative in the chair. It will numb your gums so you may not feel anything. However, you can expect some discomfort and tenderness around your gums after the treatment is completed.
While the treatment itself takes as little as 2-3 hours, complete healing may take weeks. Your gums and mouth will be sensitive at first, so it is recommended you eat soft foods for about a week after the procedure. Your dentist will provide post-surgery dietary instructions.
