Gum Contouring and Tooth Reshaping from Bow House Dental in Tring, Hertfordshire
To perfect your smile, Bow House has a wealth of experience in delivering gum contouring and tooth reshaping treatments. Minor adjustments can make a great difference to the overall appearance of your teeth and gums, giving you greater confidence when you smile.
Tooth reshaping (also known as contouring) involves making small adjustments to the level of your teeth. When you bite your teeth together, any parts that do not quite meet and any teeth that do not sit quite in alignment with the others can be corrected with tooth reshaping treatment.
How does it work?
This may involve gently filing or lengthening teeth to improve their appearance. It is quite common for patients who have had veneers fitted to some of their teeth to opt for tooth reshaping on their other teeth to improve the final aesthetic result, as this is more economical than having veneers fitted on all visible teeth.
Similarly, patients who have had their teeth straightened using braces may find that once their teeth are straight they are not perfectly level and so opt for tooth reshaping to achieve a flawless result.
Other patients simply seek tooth reshaping to correct minor irregularities to create a perfect smile.
Whatever your reason, if you desire a uniform, beautiful smile then contact Bow House to arrange a free initial consultation with one of our highly-skilled dental professionals who will explore all available options with you.
Gum contouring can greatly improve the appearance of your smile by reducing or reshaping the visible parts of your gums. Your gums frame your teeth, and having excessive tissue can look unsightly and can make your teeth appear stunted. By gently removing excess or asymmetrical gum tissue we can create an aesthetically perfect smile without in any way destabilising your teeth.
The precise nature of the treatment you will be offered will depend on the extent of the contouring that will need to be carried out. Relatively minor changes can be effected through simple sculpting of the gum tissues, whilst more significant imperfections can be successfully treated using a surgical lifting technique. The result of either treatment will be the same: a beautiful, natural smile; the difference is that surgical lifting will involve a longer period of healing following your procedure.
Our dental surgeons are highly trained and have many years of experience in delivering either of these forms of treatment and will discuss all of the options that are available to you that will produce the best results.
If you feel that gum contouring would help you to feel happier about your smile, your dentist will advise you as to whether you may need to combine that treatment with having veneers fitted, to prevent unwanted regrowth of the gum tissue. If you are nervous about the idea of having dental surgery, please speak with our team as it may be that gentle sedation can be offered to you, to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
