Aesthetic Gum Correction in Dubai

Do you have a gummy smile? Uneven gumlines or excessive gum tissues can make your teeth look shorter than they really are. They can also cause teeth to look misshaped and of different sizes. In reality, all you need to fix your smile is to safely adjust the shape of your gum tissue (gingiva.)

On the other hand, some people have too little gingiva, caused by receding gums or periodontal disease. If more teeth than gums show, the opposite of a gummy smile procedure might be needed: a gum graft.

Gummy Smile Treatment

Aesthetic gum correction typically involves gummy smile treatment, aka “gum recontouring.” If you have a gummy smile, we can use minimally invasive techniques such as laser therapy to gently reduce and reshape the edges of your gum tissues. That way the contour around each tooth is a desired shape and curvature. 

Most laser gum correction can be completed in a single appointment. Numbing medication can be used if you have sensitive gums, but it isn’t always necessary. The results are immediate. And since the contouring is performed with a laser, the gum tissues are instantly sealed for reduced bleeding and inflammation. No sutures or surgical dressings are necessary. You’ll have an instantly enhanced smile with practically no recovery time.

What About Receding Gums?

If your gum tissues are pulling away (receding) down the roots of your teeth, it can also be problematic. Gingival loss affects tooth integrity, as it’s also accompanied by bone loss. On top of that, exposed root surfaces are highly prone to sensitivity and tooth decay.

While laser recontouring does not re-grow gingival tissues, another type of aesthetic gum correction is available: soft tissue grafting. This type of therapy takes gingiva from another donor site and covers the exposed root.

With time and care, the tissue attaches to the surrounding gingiva and root surface. Instead of gummy smile procedures where the gums are shortened, the gumlines are increased. 

Soft tissue grafting is a therapeutic treatment that also provides aesthetic gum correction. The result is a healthier smile that reduces your chances of tooth loss, while also complementing the overall look of your teeth and gums.

Pinhole treatment is a graft alternative that uses minimally invasive procedures to gently tug on surrounding gum tissue to cover exposed roots.

Comprehensive Gum Therapy

Gummy smile treatment and soft tissue grafting are just a couple of examples of our gingival therapy offerings. Dr. Joy Dental Clinic also provides services like gum depigmentation (gingival bleaching) and gum disease treatment for periodontal disease. Your gums frame your smile and play a key role in the way your teeth look. If the tissue is irregular or unhealthy, it can detract from even the most attractive teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will my gums grow back?

    Depending on why you need a gummy smile makeover, your gum tissues are unlikely to “grow back” after being recontoured. However, if the excessive tissues are caused by hormones or medication, they may do so.

  • Does gum recontouring hurt?

    Cosmetic gum recontouring is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure that’s completed with a soft tissue laser. Lasers minimize discomfort and reduce recovery times, providing a practically painless gummy smile makeover. At most, you may only need an over-the-counter pain reliever for a day or so.

  • Is gum recontouring safe?

    One of the safest gummy smile procedures we offer is laser recontouring. Compared to older methods of treating gummy smiles, laser therapy is considerably less invasive, making it safer for our patients. There are no incisions or sutures required. The laser provides instant sealing along the edges of the gum tissues so that there’s practically no recovery time needed.

  • What causes gum recession (long teeth)?

    Gum recession can be caused by periodontal disease, misaligned teeth, use of tobacco products, teeth grinding, and aggressive toothbrushing, among other factors. Once gums begin to recede, they cannot “grow back” on their own. Professional intervention is the only option.

  • What causes gummy smiles?

    Excessive gum tissue can be the result of genetics, hormones, and even certain types of prescription medication. For instance, some high blood pressure medicines can cause an overgrowth of gum tissue. During pregnancy, some women experience excessive gum growth called “pregnancy tumors” which may improve after giving birth or need to be removed with a laser. Poor oral hygiene during orthodontic therapy can also cause tissue overgrowth.
