Aesthetic Gum Lifts
Your smile is often the very first thing that people notice about you. A beautiful, confident smile has the power to leave a powerful, positive, lasting impression. One major factor in the quality of your smile Is the appearance of your teeth. However, even if your teeth are perfect, your smile may still not be what you want. Excess gum tissue can dull the beauty of your smile, no matter what your teeth look like. Mid Valley Dental can remove excess gum tissue, improving the quality of your smile, with an aesthetic gum lift.
What is an Aesthetic Gum Lift?
Even the smallest amount of excess gum tissue can have a significant impact on the quality of your smile. This extra tissue can cause your otherwise perfect teeth to appear smaller than natural, giving them the appearance of baby teeth. An aesthetic gum lift sometimes referred to as an aesthetic crown lengthening, is a procedure that is performed to remove the extra gum tissue, greatly improving and enhancing the beauty of your smile while also boosting your confidence.
The Process of an Aesthetic Gum Lift
An aesthetic gum lift used to be performed using a scalpel. A scalpel is very effective, but it does have a few significant disadvantages. For one, it can cause significant bleeding during treatment. The scalpel can also cause tissue trauma during your procedure, which then results in pain and swelling during your recovery.
Today, we perform your aesthetic gum lift with a dental laser. This incredible tool allows us to remove necessary tissue with an incredibly thin beam of light. It is the light that cuts your tissue and cauterizes it at the same time. Because of this, the amount of bleeding you experience is greatly reduced. The laser is incredibly accurate, enabling us to target and remove only the necessary tissue. It also aids in reducing tissue trauma, resulting in much less pain and swelling and a shorter recovery period.
The procedure is performed under a local anesthetic. We first need to make incisions in your gums so that we can separate the tissue from your teeth. We then use the laser to remove excess tissue and sculpt a more natural gumline. The teeth adjacent to the affected area are also treated to help provide more natural results. If necessary, the wavelength of the laser light is adjusted to allow us to remove small amounts of bone. When your procedure is complete, your gums are sutured back against your teeth. Your smile is instantly improved and continues to improve as you heal.
