Gentle Tooth and Gum Reshaping, Contouring

Posted on 8/6/2018 by Michael Bleyzer, DDS
Woman smiling with even gumsWhen it comes to cosmetic improvements, the teeth get most, if not all of the attention. But healthy gums play a critical role in overall oral and general health, and cosmetic issues like receding gums, a "gummy" smile, or discolorations can damage your smile as much as cracked or stained teeth. Dr. Michael Bleyzer, a family dentist serving Pomona, Stony Point, and Rockland County, NY, offers gentle tooth and gum reshaping and contouring procedures, as well as other cosmetic and general dentistry services for patients of all ages.

Gum Reshaping and Contouring in Pomona, Stony Point, and Rockland County, NY

Gum contouring and reshaping (also sometimes referred to as gum tissue sculpting) is designed to correct gum tissue that rests too high or too low on the teeth. Even if your teeth and gums are otherwise healthy, you may be unhappy with the quality of your smile due to how your gums look.

Is Gum Reshaping and Contouring Right for Me?

Issues with your gums can be either cosmetic and caused by factors beyond your control like genetics or as a side effect from taking certain types of medication, or they may be due to periodontal (gum) disease that causes the gums to recede and expose larger portions of the tooth. Gentle gum reshaping and contouring can improve the aesthetic quality of your smile and help to repair damage caused by periodontal disease.

How Gentle Gum Reshaping and Contouring Works

The process is minimally invasive and performed at your family dentist's office. First Dr. Bleyzer will apply a mild anesthetic to numb the area. The gum's are contoured using a dental laser, which allows for greater precision, less bleeding, and a faster and smoother recover process in most cases.
