About Gum Sculpting
Excess gum tissue can cover the teeth and create a condition known as a "gummy smile". This condition can be efficiently corrected with laser gum sculpting. Some dentists call this as periodontal plastic surgery. At DentalWorks - Grove City in Grove City, OH our dentists perform gum sculpting using a highly technical laser to safely and effectively remove excess gum tissue to present more of the tooth. While this procedure is sometimes referred to as a cosmetic treatment, gum contouring also improves a patient's oral health by limiting the risk of infection by eliminating areas where decay can hide. This improves in lowering the risk for gum disease.

What to Expect with Laser Gum Sculpting
Laser gum reshaping can be completed directly within our dental office in Grove City, OH using a mild sedative to control any pain or discomfort. Many patients have fear regarding a dental procedure, so our dentists are available to offer sedation for patients who feel they need it. During the procedure the teeth and gums will be thoroughly cleaned and dried and then the laser will delicately remove sections of the gum so that the gumline appears smooth and even. The laser at DentalWorks - Grove City also assists to stop bleeding and finalize the shape of the gums.
Laser Gum Sculpting Treatment Aftercare
The gums and teeth may be swollen and inflamed for several weeks following gum reshaping, but with daily at-home oral care, the swelling will subside and the gums will heal quickly. Our dentists will go over the caring instructions along with possible medication to ensure healthy healing. Routine examinations and cleanings at DentalWorks - Grove City are recommended to help keep and maintain healthy gums.
