Gum shaping, also known as gum contouring or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves removing excess gum tissue to improve the appearance of your teeth. The procedure can help to balance the proportion of your teeth and gums, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
At Axis Dental Clinic, we offer gum shaping services that can transform your smile and boost your confidence. Our experienced dental team uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure the best results for our patients.
Here’s what you can expect from our gum shaping procedure:
- Consultation: During your initial consultation, our dental team will examine your teeth and gums to determine if gum shaping is the right procedure for you. We will also discuss your desired outcome and answer any questions you may have.
- Treatment planning: Once we’ve determined that gum shaping is right for you, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals.
- Procedure: The gum shaping procedure typically involves removing excess gum tissue using a laser or a scalpel. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. The length of the procedure will depend on the extent of the gum tissue removal needed.
- Recovery: After the procedure, you may experience some mild discomfort and sensitivity. However, this should subside within a few days. You will be given post-operative instructions to follow, including avoiding certain foods and activities, to ensure a smooth recovery.
- Follow-up: Our team will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and ensure that your gums are healing properly. We will also provide you with tips on how to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent future gum problems.
