Gum & Tooth Reshaping, which is also commonly referred to as re-contouring, is a painless and minimally invasive way to dramatically change the look of your smile. The size and shape of your gum line or teeth impact the overall look of your smile. With Gum and Tooth Reshaping your dentist can smooth minor chips and make pointy or jagged teeth appear straight and sleek, and redefine worn-out teeth.
Patients are often amazed to find that such small changes can have such a big impact on the look of their smile. A fuller gum line can cause your teeth to look small and give you what is known as a “gummy smile”, while misshapen gums can cause your teeth to appear crooked. Teeth that are twisted or unusually shaped can be reshaped to reflect the light differently for a smile that looks straighter.
In some cases, a tooth that is slightly set back can look darker or stained—something that can be remedied simply by contouring the gum framing that tooth so that it appears to be in line with the others. These are just some of the issues that can be remedied with Gum and Tooth Reshaping.
By using laser dentistry to reshape or shorten your gum line or re-contouring the teeth, you are able to quickly achieve a smile that you can be proud of without having to resort to more invasive procedures.
There is no recovery time involved with Gum and Tooth Reshaping so that you are able to see and enjoy your new smile right away.
