Gums play a vital role in your oral system, but sometimes they aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing things to look at. Too much gum tissue can make your teeth look small while receding gums can cause sensitivity and make your teeth look too long. As a solution, our Georgetown, TX office offers laser gum reshaping to help you get the smile of your dreams.
You might want to opt for gum recontouring for a few reasons. The first is aesthetics: if your gums make your teeth look too small or too long, gum recontouring is a minimally invasive procedure that can help alter the appearance of your smile.
The second reason is to reduce sensitivity. Receding gums can expose more of your tooth and leave you vulnerable to temperature changes or other painful sensations. Gum contouring can replace the lost gum tissue and cover these sensitive areas of your tooth once again.
Gum recontouring is a non-surgical procedure that’s virtually pain-free, meaning the recovery time is quick, and the entire procedure can be completed in one office visit.
First, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic so you won’t feel anything during the process itself. Your dentist will then remove and shape the gum tissue using our highly advanced laser technology. The laser minimizes downtime and ensures that there’s as little discomfort as possible during the procedure.
