Gingival Recontouring

Why Gingival Recontouring?

If you have uneven gums or gum disease, Dr. Nicacio may recommend gingival recontouring as part of your dental treatment plan. Gingival recontouring is also sometimes called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting and it can improve an uneven gum line and help your smile look its best.

Gingival recontouring can be combined with gum graft surgery to correct more extensive gingival loss or improve the appearance of your smile. This clinical procedure reshapes and raises the gum line for a natural-looking result that is customized to fit your mouth and teeth. It’s important to note that this procedure alone may not be enough to correct gum recession.

Is It Safe?

Gum contouring is safe because the procedures are minimally invasive and appropriate for both children and adults. The only potential risk with treatment is any allergic reaction to the local anesthetics.

Gum contouring (Gingival Recontouring) is a procedure that can help you keep your smile healthy and beautiful, but it’s not always the easiest thing to talk about.

Doctor takes good care of my family. When grandson knocked tooth out, got us in immediately and then set up emergency dental -medical in TRI-Cities for him in hopes of saving the tooth. Quick, caring action in emergency situation. Above and beyond help. Really feel like he cares about our dental needs. We get the best.
