If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, speak with one of our dentists about the benefits of our gum treatments and whether grafting or laser dentistry is suitable for you. You may be surprised at the possibilities that are now available thanks to advancements in cosmetic dentistry.
The following provides an overview of our gum treatment options, but a consultation with our dentists in East Bentleigh will provide you with a more detailed understanding of the different procedures available and which gum solution is best suited to your individual circumstances.
We offer gum contouring in Melbourne to shape the gums for an improved smile. Advanced techniques in laser dentistry are used to remove excess gum tissue to give you a beautiful smile. For comfort, we generally apply a local anaesthetic, and laser dentistry allows us to seal the gums without stitches, with minimal bleeding and short healing time.
A gum graft surgery involves surgically implanting a small amount of soft tissue to the affected area to help create a more even gum line. This gum solution is an effective method of repairing deformities, correcting gum recession and reducing root sensitivity. Along with gum contouring, your dentist in East Bentleigh can give you a more balanced smile with a gum graft surgery.
If you’re suffering from a sore mouth and gums, tissue may need to be removed. LANAP laser dentistry for gums is able to remove diseased tissue while avoiding damage to healthy tissue, tissue volume and bone. This procedure requires a careful approach to ensure healthy tissue isn’t removed.
