Doctor Wendelschafer on Gum Reshaping or Gummy Smile Treatment
Gum reshaping or re-contouring, there's a variety of ways it's referred to, it crosses many thresholds. In the cosmetic zone, it's a fantastic asset to have an instrument that allows you to do that, to contour those gums in an aesthetically pleasing way.
I've got a CO2 laser, which is fantastic. It's, in my opinion, the best way to contour gums in a very short amount of time and sometimes without anesthesia. It's quick, it's effective and it's gorgeous, but it's also really effective in back teeth areas where food might be getting stuck or you have somewhere that just hurts or it bleeds a lot when you floss, the CO2 laser is able to get in and shape the gums so that you don't have food traps and plaque traps and those kinds of things. So it's got a more practical function too, as well as aesthetic.
Let’s face it. Our smiles are one of the first things other people notice about us and judge us on. If you have a “gummy smile,” meaning too much of your gums show when you smile, reshaping your gums is a straightforward way to address the problem. No longer will you have to feel embarrassed to show others a full, genuine smile or try to hide your smile behind your hands.
Dr. Wendelschafer will use a special CO2 laser designed just for this type of procedure. He will:
- Examine your teeth and gums to make sure you’re a good candidate for gum reshaping
- Plan the steps he’ll take to make your gums more attractive
- Gently remove excess gum tissue using the laser
- Give your teeth and gums a final once-over to make sure everything looks perfect so you’re completely satisfied
Although laser gum reshaping is a painless procedure, we can use a local anesthetic to numb your gums if desired. We want to make sure you’re completely at ease before we begin working.
