Transform Your Gummy Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Excess gum tissue is commonly referred to as a gummy smile. People with this condition have it simply because of genetics. Poorly erupted teeth, enlarged gums, a short or high upper lip, or an overgrown upper jaw all contribute to how much gum tissue you have. If you’re unhappy with this characteristic, Chandler cosmetic dentistry treatments allow you and your dentist to decide just how you want your smile to look.

Undergo Gingival Sculpting

Gingival sculpting, also known as laser gum contouring, removes excess gum tissue to create a balanced smile. It’s a state-of-the-art treatment that permanently lasers off gum tissue and reshapes your smile. Some of the most notable characteristics:

  • Noninvasive
  • Comfortable
  • Immediate results
  • Quick healing

Whether you want to correct an uneven gum line, make short teeth longer, or just get rid of unwanted gum tissue, the gum-to-tooth ratio afterward will be attractive and even and complementary to the shape of your smile. Gum contouring only takes about 30 minutes for the meticulous removal of excess gum tissue.

Enhance Newly Revealed Tooth Enamel

Once additional tooth enamel is revealed, you may notice a difference between its bright white color and the enamel that has always been part of your smile. The contouring alone will transform your teeth, but the color could require a touch-up. So your smile doesn’t look like it has a stain line across the area where gum tissue used to be, you can undergo professional teeth whitening for even, bright teeth. These two cosmetic dentistry treatments together deliver a smile makeover that gives you a big, beautiful grin.

Perfect Your Entire Smile

A common counterpart to laser gum contouring is porcelain veneers. This cosmetic dentistry treatment is a stunning addition to a broadened smile. Customized in size, shape, length, and color, veneers are placed over natural teeth to create a perfect smile that looks natural.

If you have a noticeable discoloration between tooth enamel and newly revealed enamel, plus other smile imperfections like stains, crooked teeth, gaps, misalignment, and more, veneers are carefully personalized to cover up everything you dislike about the appearance of your teeth.

Feel Comfortable During Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Many dental patients want to change their smiles but they have dental anxiety and fear the time in the dentist’s chair. This is normal and many people are in the same position – your Chandler dentist offers different types of sedation dentistry to make it easier for you to get the work done that you need and want done.

An amazing smile makeover doesn’t have to stress you out or make you worry about the invasiveness of dental treatments. You should be comfortable and excited about the new you and your dentist offers various types of sedation to make a new smile possible.
