You’ll Benefit from Gum Recontouring
How Gum Recontouring Helps
Creating the Perfect Smile
Once removed, your gums won’t grow back on their own. The only way to restore a lack of gum tissue is through gum grafting surgery. It’s especially important that you don’t receive gummy smile treatment from an unqualified or inexperienced dentist. This procedure doesn’t just involve removing extra gum tissues. It also requires significant artistry and accuracy to reshape the tissues just right to reveal a balanced, attractive smile.
You’ll benefit from receiving gummy smile treatment from our dentists who are trained and experienced in aesthetic soft tissue treatments. One of our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Corey Jensen, has even won numerous “Top Cosmetic Dentist” awards over the decades from the Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, a testament to his ongoing pursuit of excellence in aesthetic dentistry. At Smile Design Dentistry, we create personalized, one-of-a-kind treatment plans for each of our patients. You’ll receive one that specifically fits your smile goals, so you can get the attractive, symmetrical smile you want the first time.
Our Gum Recontouring Process
We begin our gummy smile treatment in Plymouth, MN with detailed planning of the perfect smile line for your unique features. Gums play an important role in the health of your smile, so our goal is to remove just enough soft tissue to result in an attractive smile without causing damage. We may even draw on your gums with a special marker to map out a new gum line, so we know exactly how to reshape the tissues.
Once everyone is satisfied with the design, we’ll administer local anesthetic to numb the area. You can also request custom sedation if you’re feeling nervous about the procedure. Next, we’ll precisely remove the planned amount of gum tissues from around each tooth, modifying bone if necessary. Your procedure won’t take much time, and you’ll be able to go home after your appointment. It may take a few days for swelling and discomfort to subside, with the results of your procedure noticeable at this time. Enjoy the health and confidence boost your new smile brings!
