Reasons to Reshape Your Gums

Posted on 9/6/2021 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Reasons to Reshape Your GumsGum reshaping is a cosmetic procedure that changes the shape of your gums. We use a gum reshaping procedure to get rid of excessive gum tissues that make your smile gummy. This procedure can also be used to restore receded gum tissue that exposes too much of your natural teeth. Here are reasons why you should undergo a gum reshaping procedure.

Improves Your Smile

A gum reshaping procedure helps improve your smile significantly. It exposes and lengthens crowns to create a better and brighter smile. By exposing a large surface of your teeth or covering up overly exposed teeth, your smile will improve significantly. However, it is important to note that not all patients have a balanced amount of excessive tissue covering their teeth.

Therefore, they have an uneven gum line, with specific areas having more tissue. In that case, a gum reshaping procedure will help even out the gum line and keep it balanced. This results in an asymmetrical and straighter smile. In some cases, gum reshaping also helps address a gum line that's far away from the teeth due to recession. In that case, the tissue pulls back too far, exposing your tooth roots. This makes your teeth look long and unattractive. The risk of tooth decay and gum disease also increases due to exposed tooth roots. All these problems can be solved by simply undergoing a gum reshaping procedure.

Improved Oral Health

Apart from improving your smile, gum reshaping can also improve your oral health. When your gums are too large, they can easily trap food particles and cause oral infections. They also form pockets that can be hard to clean by brushing and flossing. Therefore, it is a good idea to undergo a gum reshaping procedure that puts your oral health in a better position. Contact our offices for more information on the importance of gum reshaping.

This Doctor is a true healer!

Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
