Sometimes, it is not always your teeth that can cause aesthetic problems. People can lose confidence in their smile if they think that too much of their gum shows.
There is good news it is an easy problem for Aldridge Dental practice to remedy. There is a technique available known as ‘gum contouring’. We will use a specialist laser to trim away and shape the gum tissue so that it looks even and in proportion to the teeth.
Gum contouring, however, is a largely pain-free procedure. The beauty of it is that the laser naturally seals up the wounds as it cuts away the gums. There is no excess bleeding, no need for stitches, and no open wounds.
Gum contouring is such a straightforward procedure that it also only requires a local anaesthetic. So you do not need to be ‘put to sleep’. Apart from some numbness in the jaw, you can carry on with your normal daily activities straight after your appointment. Please call the practice on 01922 456 600 to find out more.
