What is Gum Recontouring?

Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a transformative cosmetic procedure designed to enhance your smile. For those with excessive or uneven gum tissue, this treatment creates a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. A diode laser is often used for its exceptional precision and minimal discomfort, meticulously removing excess gum tissue and aligning your gums with your teeth. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, gum contouring also promotes better oral hygiene by eliminating hard-to-clean areas, thereby reducing the risk of gum disease.

Why Choose Smile Hilliard for Your Gum Recontouring

Selecting an experienced dentist is crucial for optimal results. Dr. Sanyk at Smile Hilliard leverages the latest technology and brings extensive experience in cosmetic procedures. Our team is proficient in the use of diode lasers, ensuring a comfortable experience and the highest quality of care for our patients.

State-of-the-Art Laser Technology

At Smile Hilliard, we utilize advanced laser technology for precise gum shaping. Soft tissue lasers, such as diodes, gently trim excess gum tissue while simultaneously sealing the area to minimize bleeding and promote quicker healing.

The Gum Recontouring Procedure

The procedure begins with the administration of local anesthesia to ensure comfort. Using a diode laser, Dr. Sanyk precisely removes the excess gum tissue. The entire process typically takes about one to two hours.

Initial Consultation and Smile Assessment

Prior to the procedure, you will undergo a consultation to discuss your goals and assess your oral health. Dr. Sanyk will develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include additional treatments such as veneers or teeth whitening.

Preparing for Your Gum Recontouring Treatment

Maintaining good oral hygiene before the procedure is essential. Proper brushing and flossing can reduce the risk of infection and promote faster healing. Local anesthesia will be used during the procedure, and you may experience some bleeding and swelling afterward. Adhering to Dr. Sanyk’s care instructions is crucial for optimal recovery.

Benefits of Gum Recontouring for Your Smile

Improved Gum Health and Maintenance

Gum recontouring enhances your smile by reducing excessive gum tissue and evening out your gum line. This procedure simplifies the maintenance of healthy gums by eliminating areas prone to bacteria buildup, which supports better oral hygiene and lowers the risk of gum disease.

Recovery and Long-Term Care After Gum Recontouring

Post-procedure care is vital for a smooth recovery and long-term oral health. Follow Dr. Sanyk’s instructions, avoid irritating foods, and use recommended mouthwashes. Stick to soft foods, manage discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers, and practice gentle oral hygiene. Be vigilant for signs of infection and contact Smile Hilliard if needed. 

Long-Term Gum Health and Aesthetics Maintenance

For long-term maintenance, regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits are essential. Stay alert to signs of gum disease and seek prompt treatment if necessary.

This is hands down the best experience I have ever had at the dentist. Extremely professional and courteous staff. They numbed me for a filling today and I felt no pain at all. They let you pick a show to watch while they work.
