Single Tooth Gum Recontouring

At Painfree Dentistry we off a range of cosmetic procedures including single tooth gum recontouring. Gum contouring can help with issues such as a gummy smile and the shape of teeth. Single tooth gum recontouring is used to change the shape of one individual tooth.

Single Tooth Recontouring

Single tooth recontouring can help patients who have an unbalanced smile. When you smile you may notice that the shape of the gum on one tooth makes your smile uneven. With the procedure that can be changed. You may have a beautiful smile that is let down by a small amount of gum on one tooth. Recontouring can fix this issue. While it often does not affect your health, it can make you feel self-conscious when you smile. Painfree Densitry can help so you can smile with confidence.

The recontouring procedure is minimally-invasive and the treatment will be performed with laser technology. Lasers are used to remove the gum and seal the gums and with the technology no cuts will be made. When lasers are used the procedure is totally painless.

While every patient is different, here is an example of an average gum recontouring. The first step will be to numb the area, the pain relief used will depend on you as a patient. Then a laser light will be used on the area of gum tissues that needs to be removed. The laser reshapes and seals the gums at the same time. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and the recovery is immediate. No stitches will be required as the laser has closed all of the blood vessels in the gums.

After Care

The lasers seal the gums during the procedure so you will recover straight away. There are no cuts or incisions that need to heal it is immediate. However, in some cases the gums may feel a little sensitive. This will only last a few says and you can use a salt water rinse to help with sensitivity. Your daily hygiene should remain the same unless your dentist has said otherwise. So, keep brushing twice a day and you can gently floss daily to. You should be gentle with the floss for a few days so you do not irritate the treated gum. After the treatment, you should try to avoid temperature change so try to avoid food and drink that is too hot or cold. Also try to avoid spicy food.

While the procedure is painless and recovery is fast there a few risks. If your gums swell, start to bleed or you are concerned about your gums then contact us straight away.
