How to Address a Gummy Smile
General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta
Posted: August 15, 2013
One of the most common cosmetic dentistry complaints our Alberta-area patients register is that they show too much of their gums when they smile. A gummy smile is a significant cosmetic issue, as too-prominent gum tissue can obscure your teeth and leave you lacking confidence in your smile.
Cosmetic dentist Christine Fialka-Eshenko understands how meaningful this is, which is why she offers gum recontouring as a solution to your gummy smile.
When performed by our cosmetic dentist, gum recontouring is a simple, safe procedure that requires little recovery time and leaves you with a more attractive smile.
After applying a local anesthetic, our cosmetic dentist will use a laser to remove excess gum tissue and shape the gum line in such a way as to accentuate your teeth. Some swelling and tenderness is to be expected after your procedure, but these are generally mild and can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
Our cosmetic dentist often uses gum recontouring as part of a total smile makeover. The end result of your procedure will be a smile in which you can have confidence.
