Giving our patients the most beautiful and healthiest smile of their life is top priority at Wyndam Manor Dental Care, which is why we strive to provide the latest and best cosmetic dental services to all who visit our clinic in need of a restorative procedure. Gum reduction or reshaping is one of a variety of cosmetic procedures you can receive at Wyndam Manor.
Gum Reduction/Reshaping for Cosmetic Purposes
If you have what is often referred to as a “gummy smile” because your gums cover too much of your teeth, a gum reduction procedure may be the best choice for giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Yao is specially trained in performing gum reduction procedures and can reshape your gums to reveal more of your teeth’s surface.
Gum Reshaping for Periodontal Issues
Dental conditions such as gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth loss, and tooth decay can result in gum recession, thus exposing more of the tooth’s surface than needed. Periodontal gum reshaping is used to remove deep pockets left by gum disease and to seal the remaining gum tissue to prevent the development of more problems.
About Gum Reduction Procedures
Dr. Yao uses the latest dental technology to perform procedures like gum reduction. A mild local anesthetic may be applied to prevent discomfort before a dental laser is used to remove excess gum tissue. Patients who experience dental anxiety may request dental sedation to help them undergo the procedure.
