Your smile may look "gummy" if the upper portion of your tooth is hidden by an excess of gum tissue. At Junée F. Gardy DDS, PA, gum contouring can improve your smile by removing the extra soft tissue and revealing more of the tooth. Gum sculpting can not only give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile, but it can also improve your oral health by getting rid of places where bacteria usually build up. This lowers your chances of having periodontal disease, cavities, and infections. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Junée F. Gardy at our office in Naples, FL to get more information about gum contouring.

Gum contouring is an in-office dental procedure performed using a mild local anesthetic. We may offer additional sedation options if you have anxiety or fear about receiving dental work. Before the treatment, your gums and teeth will be professionally cleaned. Dr. Gardy can then use a special laser tool to remove unnecessary gum tissue until a more balanced gumline is revealed. The laser seals the soft tissue for minimal bleeding throughout the process. Once your gums are contoured, Dr. Gardy will clean your mouth so you may see your results. In most cases, gum contouring will be done in a single appointment.

Dr. Gardy worked on my molar that needed root canal work by Dr. Layton. She did a crown that was absolutely perfect with the margins so tight and you just can't tell it's a crown. You'll be very pleased with her very professional offices and staff.

About Us
Is gum contouring suitable for people with gum disease?

Gum contouring can be performed on patients with gum disease, but addressing the underlying periodontal issues is essential. Treating gum disease is vital to creating a healthy foundation for cosmetic procedures. Once the gum disease is managed or under control, gum contouring can be considered to enhance the appearance of the gum line. During your consultation, the dentist will assess your gum health and recommend the most suitable treatment plan to achieve the desired results.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with gum contouring?

Gum contouring is generally a safe procedure, especially when performed by an experienced dentist. However, it carries risks and potential side effects like any surgical procedure. These may include temporary swelling, bleeding, and sensitivity in the treated area. Infection is rare but can occur if post-operative care instructions are not followed. It's crucial to adhere to your dentist's aftercare guidelines to minimize any complications and promote a smooth recovery. Discussing your health history and any concerns with your dentist can help plan a safe procedure.

Can I eat and drink normally after gum contouring?

After gum contouring, following a modified diet for a few days is advisable to allow proper healing. Soft foods such as yogurt, mashed potatoes, and smoothies are recommended to avoid irritating the treated area. It's best to avoid hot, spicy, or crunchy foods and beverages that are very hot or acidic to prevent discomfort and promote healing. Drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol and smoking can also aid in the recovery process.
