Gum Reduction

Sat, Dec 10, 2011
For people with extra gummy smiles, gum reduction through surgical or laser intervention is a great way to reduce the amount of visible gums, allowing a beautiful, toothy smile.
Gum Reduction

Many people have what you call a “gummy smile”, where their gums cover too much of the teeth surfaces making them appear short or small in relation to the gums. What shows more is the extra-pink gum, which can be esthetically very unpleasing and distracting for the onlooker. Gummy smiles are also a major cause for a low self-esteem in people, who feel that they can’t smile because of the extra gums that show.
Gum reduction is a solution to such people’s problems. Gum reduction, also known as gum reshaping and contouring, can be done as a surgical procedure, where local anesthetic is given and the gums are shaped and contoured with the help of fine surgical instruments to expose more of the teeth surfaces. The gum line and sometimes even the bone just beneath the gum line can be lowered to expose more of the teeth and lengthen the crown of the teeth. The result is a beautiful, more toothy smile and lesser gums showing.
Gum reduction can also be done with the help of a dental laser. The process is much faster and much less invasive, causing lesser bleeding and faster healing. Gum reduction is not harmful to your teeth in any way and gives great, permanent results with a lifelong boost in confidence in your smile!
