Do You Want To Change The Shape Of Your Gums?

gum contouring Riverview FL

Most Tampa dental patients know that cosmetic, restorative and orthodontic dentistry procedures improve your teeth. There are treatments to reshape teeth, straighten teeth, correct damaged teeth, whiten teeth, and replace missing teeth. But what about your gums? Do you realize how integral your soft tissues are to the overall appearance of your smile?

The shape and size of your gumline can make your teeth appear too large or too small or otherwise out of proportion. Gum contouring can correct gums that appear too low or too high in relation to the teeth and shape them for the perfect smile.

Valrico dental patients who are unhappy with their gums might want to consider gum contouring. Many dentists and periodontists in Valrico offer gum contouring surgery.

This procedure is also called gingival sculpting, gingival contouring or gum graft surgery, but don’t let the term surgery frighten you. It is performed with a precision laser and is minimally invasive. The procedure usually involves little pain and requires no recovery time.

Gum reshaping is not always done for purely cosmetic reasons, it is also used to treat gum recession, a common condition that can lead to decay and tooth loss. In gum graft surgery, soft tissue is typically taken either from the roof of the mouth, the area surrounding the site of the grafting, or a tissue bank. Gum grafts applied to exposed tooth roots protect teeth from continuing gum recession and decay and reduce tooth sensitivity. Of course, gum grafts often increase the attractiveness of the smile in the process.
