Gum Recontouring – Fanwood, NJ

A Beautiful Frame To Compliment Your Smile

Have you noticed that your teeth and gums seem disproportionate? An uneven gum line that makes your teeth appear short and stubby can completely distract from your otherwise beautiful smile. Back in the day, the only way to correct this cosmetic flaw was to get an invasive gum lift that involved some of the least pleasant-looking tools. At Scotch Plains Fanwood Dental Care, we use the latest technology, a soft tissue laser, to offer painless results. This tool uses a small, concentrated beam of light to remove overbearing gum tissue to reveal a more proportionate, beautiful grin. You may as well call our cosmetic dentists mini Michelangelo’s!

Many patients are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles for a variety of reasons. If you look at your grin and you feel like your gums take over the majority of your teeth, you’re most likely a good candidate for the procedure. Typically, this problem occurs due to factors that are out of your control, such as genetics or health problems. People who are looking into the procedure are typically looking to improve the appearance of their grin, allowing them to eat, speak, and laugh with complete confidence.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Gum recontouring is a procedure completed in our office. The soft tissue laser is simple to use and allows us to reconstruct smiles causing minimal discomfort and virtually no recovery time afterward. Because it emits a small, concentrated beam of light, we’re able to craft with maximum precision and accuracy.

Before we schedule your procedure, we may recommend a consultation, this way, we can learn about the goals you have for your grin and help you determine whether another cosmetic treatment might be more beneficial because we want to make sure that you know all of your options.

Once you decide gum recontouring is the right choice for you, one of our cosmetic dentists will draw a line to mark the new gum line so you can see what your smile will look like. We will also apply a local anesthetic to numb the area, so you won’t feel a thing. Once the treatment is finished and the anesthetic has worn off, you’ll be able to continue on with your day. Just keep in mind that it’s a good idea to limit your activities and take it slow to speed up the healing process.
