Patient having teeth examined by dentistAre you in any way dissatisfied with your smile? If so, you’re not alone. Every smile is a reflection of the person who wears it. It’s one of the oldest, most common ways we communicate and express ourselves to one another. Having a smile, your love can positively influence not only your appearance, but also your self-confidence, how you carry yourself, and how others see you in return. Of course, not every smile-related grievance is necessary because of people’s teeth. Many lie with the gums.

Some people may feel like their gums are too high, too low, or that they have too much or too little gum tissue. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of cosmetic procedures available today that can correct these issues and create the dream smile you deserve. That’s where we come in. Here at Dr. Xixi Wu, we strive to deliver satisfactory smiles to every patient. Today, we’ll be answering some of the most frequently asked questions about aesthetic gum treatments.

If you or a loved one are considering cosmetic gum surgery and have any questions not covered below or wish to set up an appointment to discuss your options, please call us at (972) 669-9444.

What Is Aesthetic Gum Treatment?

Aesthetic periodontal (gum) treatment refers to a variety of procedures with the common goal of repairing, reshaping or otherwise altering your gum tissue for a desired improvement. The two most commonly used techniques include:
•  Tissue sculpting: Minimally invasive, used to repair gum recession often without the need for a soft tissue graft.
•  Tooth extension: Crown lengthening used for patients with gummy smiles who want more of their teeth exposed. The balance between your gums and teeth is improved via reshaping gum & bone tissue.

Is Aesthetic Gum Surgery Painful?

No, patients usually experience almost no discomfort during the procedure. We take extra care in these delicate surgeries with the most precise tools and use only local anesthetic when necessary.

What Are The Benefits Of Aesthetic Gum Treatment?

•  Improved shape and overall appearance of smile.
•  As previously said, expect a boost in self-esteem and love for your smile.
•  Little-no discomfort during treatment, many procedures uses only local anesthesia.
•  No effect on the functionality of your teeth. Your chompers will work just as well as before.
•  Speedy recovery.
•  Cosmetic surgery may also help combat or prevent the effects of gum disease (Periodontitis).

Who Is A Good Candidate For Aesthetic Gum Treatment?

Patients who stand to benefit most from cosmetic gum treatment are people unhappy with their smiles, specifically those with receded gums, excess gum tissue, or an uneven gum line. An ideal candidate should be in good dental and overall health. Depending on the patient, certain dental issues may need repair before gum surgery.

Is Recovery From Aesthetic Gum Surgery Painful?

No. Be it tissue sculpting or crown extending, and cosmetic gum surgeries will generally heal in a few days (though the exact recovery time varies from case to case). Very little rest is necessary, and any discomfort you might experience is easily manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Remember, for any further questions you may have about aesthetic gum procedures or to schedule a consultation, please give us a call today at (972) 669-9444.
