Gum Lifts & Reshaping Adelaide
Just like the structure of your bones and shape of your nose, your gum line is unique to you.
Your gum line might sit high upon your teeth and appear straight, or it might sit lower and appear uneven.
While the shape of a person’s gum line is unlikely to cause medical or functional issues, it can cause self-consciousness and low self-esteem.
If you have a gummy smile, you may feel as though you want to hide your teeth and gums. You might smile closed-mouthed or cover your mouth when you speak.
Fortunately, there is a treatment that helps to reshape your gum line to help balance your tooth-to-gum ratio.
This treatment is known as gum contouring or laser contouring.
Most of the time, people seek gum contouring for aesthetic reasons, though in rare cases your dentist may recommend the procedure to address functional problems.
At Dental Boutique, we believe that everyone deserves a smile they can feel proud of. Our gum contouring service in Adelaide can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
What is Laser Gum Contouring? Our Adelaide Dentists Explain
Cosmetic gum contouring, or laser gum contouring, is a dental procedure that reworks your gum line.
The treatment involves removing or restoring gum tissue to improve the appearance of your smile.
While some clinics use scalpels, at Dental Boutique Adelaide, we utilise laser gum contouring technology. This allows for quicker healing.
During your treatment, our expert dentists will rework your gum line so that it naturally complements your smile.
Gum contouring can be completed on its own or it may be required prior to another cosmetic procedure, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
Gum Contouring Adelaide | Recovery Time
Laser gum contouring at our Adelaide clinic requires minimal recovery time. Closely following your dentists instructions and taking care of your teeth and gums will speed up recovery.
Most people are able to resume regular activities the day after treatment and you can expect to be fully healed after 10 days.
At Dental Boutique Adelaide, gum contouring is completed under local anaesthetic, so you can safely drive yourself home after the procedure.
You may experience sore, swollen or sensitive gums in the days following your gum contouring procedure. You can take over-the-counter pain medication to relieve pain, but steer clear of aspirin-based medications as these can increase bleeding.
You can also apply ice packs to reduce swelling.
In the first few days after your procedure, opt for soft and cold foods like ice cream, yoghurt, eggs and soft vegetables.
Avoid foods that are spicey or contain seeds as they can irritate your gums and extend your recovery time.
