What is gum re-shaping?
Gum re-shaping is a cosmetic procedure and is most commonly used to treat a gummy smile. A gummy smile is not a dental health problem as such, but it can affect your confidence and have a major bearing on the way you feel, especially around others. A gummy smile is a term used to describe the look of the smile when a larger than normal amount of gum tissue is visible. It often makes the teeth look small and can make the smile look imbalanced.
Gum reshaping aims to expose more of the tooth crown by removing a small amount of excess gum tissue. The end result is a beautifully balanced smile and hopefully, a much more confident client.
How does gum reshaping work?
Gum re-shaping treatment can usually be completed in a single trip to the clinic and it is a simple procedure. Your dentist will carefully remove a small amount of gum tissue and shape the gums to unveil more of the tooth crowns.
Your dentist will explain exactly what treatment involves and what you can expect during and after treatment when you have your consultation. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask.
