Gum Contouring at our Oakridge Dental Office
Gum contouring or gingival sculpting, also referred to as gingival contouring, is typically an aesthetic treatment that patients take on in order to deal with the appearance of their gumline. It is most often sought after by clients who have a “gummy” smile, an asymmetrical smile, or in those who have a declining gum line because of an existing gum condition.
This is a small treatment that occurs in-office and lasts around one hour. Before the treatment, you will have a consultation with your South Vancouver dentist that summarizes where the sculpting will take place along the gumline.
This procedure is completed with oral laser innovation that reduces the risk of issues considerably, along with your healing time. A local anesthetic will be applied to your gumline and teeth before the gum line is lasered. Rehabilitation commonly takes a couple of days; you could experience slight swelling, as well as some tenderness, which can be taken care of with an over the counter pain reliever.
Please contact Dr. Stanley Radomsky at our South Vancouver dental office, Smile A Lot Dental Centre, if you are interested in gum contouring.
