Gum Lifts in Georgetown, TX

Regain Confidence In Your Smile

People often identify their looks based around their smile. This means that individuals with dental flaws often find insecurity in their looks or hide their teeth with a closed smile. Of the common dental flaws, it is not often known that uneven or low gum lines can be adjusted through gum contouring or reshaping. At Trade Winds Dental, we cater to aesthetic desires and proudly offer gum lift services in Georgetown, TX.

Gum Lift refers to cosmetic dental procedures aimed at reshaping or removing excess gum tissue around the teeth. Often used to treat a condition known as a “gummy smile,” where an excessive amount of gum tissue is visible above the top teeth when smiling, these procedures can significantly enhance the symmetry and overall appearance of one’s smile. Utilizing precise laser technology and surgical instruments, our staff can sculpt a more balanced gum line in relation to the teeth, improving not only aesthetic appeal but also, in some cases, the general health of the gum tissue.

Beyond aesthetics, some undergo gum contouring for health-related reasons. Excess gum tissue can harbor bacteria, leading to gum disease. Reshaping the gums can make it easier to clean the teeth and gums, thereby improving oral health. Additionally, in preparation for other dental work, such as crowns or veneers, gum reshaping may be necessary to create an ideal structure for dental restoration, ensuring both functionality and appearance are optimized.

Reshaping and Contouring: Gum Lifts Explained

Our process of gum lift in Georgetown, TX involves several steps, tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs and desired outcomes. Initially, a consultation with Dr. Winegar and our staff is necessary to discuss goals, examine the gums, and decide on the best course of action. During the procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the targeted area to minimize pain and discomfort. With the use of advanced laser technology and surgical tools, the Dr Winegar then carefully trims and sculpts the excess gum tissue, creating a more desired gum line. With our surgical precision and specialty tools, we can ensure minimal bleeding and promote a quicker recovery time. Post-procedure, patients might experience some swelling and discomfort, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days. Proper post-operative care, as advised by our, is crucial for a smooth recovery and optimal results.
