You’ll Feel Confident About Your Gumline

When you come to our practice for cosmetic gum treatments, we’ll ensure your oral health is in condition first. If you show signs of gum disease, we’ll treat the underlying problem. Once your gums are in good health, we can proceed with the procedure. Since we use a safe and gentle laser, you’ll have minimal discomfort. However, sedation is available if you want it. The laser can:

  • Reshape Your Gumline – If your gumline is uneven or misshapen, the laser will contour your gums in the least invasive way possible.
  • Improve Your Tooth-to-Gum Ratio – The laser can remove excess gum tissue to give you a more balanced smile.
  • Lengthen Your Teeth – To prepare for crowns or veneers, we’ll reveal more of your teeth by removing a bit of gum tissue.
  • Restore Your Gums – The laser can stop recession and reattach your gums to your teeth. No one will see unsightly tooth roots!

Common Questions About Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Can gum recession be treated with cosmetic gum surgery?

Yes. If it looks like your gums are pulling back from your teeth, or your teeth seem longer than they used to, we can perform a safe and effective gum recession treatment that can reduce your risk for further oral health problems such as tooth or bone loss. We’ll go over your options and discuss the specifics of this procedure during your consultation appointment.

Is gum recession treatment painful?

No. A gentle dentist like the ones at Independence Family Dentistry will ensure that your procedure is a pain-free and pleasant experience from beginning to end. Plus, you always have the option of utilizing dental sedation to help you relax and eliminate any anxiety that you may be experiencing ahead of your gum recession treatment.

What is crown lengthening?

As part of cosmetic gum surgery, crown lengthening involves removing excess gum tissue to make short teeth appear longer. It can also help make room for restorations like crowns or veneers. Your treatment will likely be performed with a special low-power dental laser that will remove the tissue and seal your gums at the same time. A laser procedure should be completely comfortable with minimal healing time required.
