When you realize that your primary esthetic issue with your smile is not necessarily your teeth but your gum tissue, this can feel like a major moment for you! Suddenly, everything makes more sense and, if you come to see our Virginia Beach, VA team for assistance, you learn that we provide a cosmetic treatment called gum contouring that may offer you the beneficial changes you want. However, of course, there may be some things on your mind that cause concern, which can become a hindrance. To get back to feeling motivated and excited, let us help!
Concern: Is The Procedure Going To Be Uncomfortable?
Of course, as with any type of procedure (particularly that includes the gentle removal of your tissue), you wonder how it’s going to feel! The good news is that many of our patients are completely comfortable without any type of anesthetic because we use a soft-tissue laser (which makes for improved comfort). However, with that said, we will most certainly be more than happy to use anesthesia to ensure your gum tissue is numb before and during the procedure, so you don’t have a care in the world and can simply relax.
Concern: Are You Sure I Don’t Just Need Dental Contouring?
You may wonder if perhaps you actually need something else. Of course, you’ve gone through the process of learning about gum contouring with us but you are still curious about the details. Here is what we would like for our patients to know: When your gum tissue is uneven or is excessive, no amount of changes to your dental tissue will improve things. Instead, trying to alter your teeth may only make a lack of symmetry or other issues appear more pronounced! However, it is possible that we will suggest both gum and dental contouring. It all depends on your needs.
Concern: What If My Issues Require Additional Care?
As mentioned, it is not out of the question that you may require more than just gum contouring. Maybe you need contouring and bonding. Perhaps you would also like to speak with us about teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. Remember that we always take every detail into consideration. This means that we will set forth a comprehensive care plan, so if there are other required needs, they’ll be included in the overall process for improving your smile.
