Gum Reshaping

Many people believe cosmetic treatment involves changing the shape and colour of your teeth. Have you ever thought that your gums can be contoured to improve your smile? If you have a gummy smile, our dentist near you will suggest getting a minimally invasive procedure known as gum reshaping. Gum reshaping, also known as gum recontouring, is a cosmetic dental procedure done to improve your smile. At Enhance Dental Centre, our experienced dentist in Vancouver, BC provide you with gum reshaping treatments .

What to Expect!

Gum reshaping, can be done by the help of either lasers or scalpels. We have to be aware that there is no difference in the outcome of the treatment. Laser sometimes is used to reshape the gum or stop bleeding during tooth crown preparation.
Gum reshaping is typically carried out on the front teeth as a cosmetic procedure. Our dentists in Vancouver, BC, after numbing your gums, gently shape the tissue around the tooth by using a laser or a scalpel. In some occasions, we need to reshape the bone underneath the gum to have a better result.
You might have some pain and discomfort for a few days after the procedure. We recommend taking over-the-counter painkillers to relieve pain. Take enough rest and try to avoid any strenuous activity

At Enhance Dental Centre, we offer gum reshaping near you as a simple and effective way to improve your smile. To learn more about gum reshaping, contact us today!

When Is It Recommended?

Gummy smile

If you have excessive gum tissue covering the tooth surface, gum reshaping may be a right treatment for you. It will not only improve your smile but makes it easier to keep the area clean.

Gum recession versus gummy smile

Recession is when your gum pulls away from the teeth and appears elongated. It can be caused by aggressive tooth brushing, gum disease, or aging. Gum recession can cause several issues such as teeth sensitivity, decay, aesthetic problems, and even loss of your teeth. It is usually treated by a procedure called gum grafting, which can be used to cover the receded area. The gum graft is taken from another area, usually the roof of your mouth, and grafted into place.

I was very impressed! I was referred by a friend. I have VERY sensitive teeth. The dental hygienist named Kyla was so thorough and gentle. No pain what so ever. Dr. Pazhoh and Nikki the dental assistant were so patient and professional. If they are taking new patients, do not hesitate to let them be your new health care professionals for all of your dental care.

I’m currently having a great experience at Enhance Dental Centre.The minute I walk in the door, Claire provides exceptional customer service, smiles, and greets me by name. She is the perfect first contact person.I had my teeth cleaned by Kyla. She is so knowledgeable in her work, gave me the best ever cleaning, made me laugh, and provided me with great ideas to maintain my teeth health.Dr. Vahid Pazhoh and Nika are an incredible team. They are very meticulous and work so in tune with each other. They are professional, make me feel very relaxed and I’m loving the results. To remember that my son is sick, and genuinely ask about him, is very kind.The staff are incredibly welcoming and helpful. I am having a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this business to others.

My wife recommended Enhance Dental, told me it's one of the best, skeptical at first, but now I totally agree with her. First, reception staff are so friendly and professional they listen to you and respect your decisions for appointments, you really feel welcomed every time you visit and always leave with a smile. Secondly, Dr. Pazhoh and his crew of dentists I can tell are at their high level of expertise, didn't feel any discomfort every time they work on my teeth in all of my visits, my gums kept bleeding before, Dr. Pazhoh informed me about gum disease, they worked on my teeth and cleaned the deepest corners of my gums, had a surgery and now I love my pink healthy gums and shinny teeth. Lastly, they have high tech state of the art equipment, they are top notch and It's amazing when they showed me how they function, Really tidy clinic and I have to say I feel like I'm in an Semi-Conductor Clean Room every time I visit. All in all I'm gonna give Enhance Dental a 10/10 and would definitely recommend to all of my friends and to anybody who's looking for an " Enhanced" dental care.

My favourite dental office in Vancouver. Dr. Pazhoh is caring, very diligent, and experienced. He has done different filling on my teeth and I’ve always been happy. The cleaning by Kyla has been remarkable; with proper flossing and brushing, it keeps my teeth going for 6 months. The front office staff is super nice. Highly recommended!
