Getting rid of your Gummy smile in South East London

12 / 06 / 2012

Cosmetic dentistry is a beautiful thing; these magical dentists of south east London have many tricks up their sleeves to make you feel better about yourself, especially if you have a problematic mouth. But cosmetics are not just about the teeth, they also relate to how your gums look too. Some of you may have had the misfortune of being born with too much gum which gives the effect of having really small teeth and this can make you wary about the way you smile. Yet for all of the cosmetic treatments around, you may be surprised to learn that gum contouring is one of the cheapest and quickest procedures around. Once you have decided that you’ve had enough of your gummy smile, you should sit down and discuss the treatment. Normally, only the gums covering the front teeth need only be shaped, then you pay around a £150 and settle into the chair and try to keep from getting too excited about the future. The operation is slick, especially if it is done with a laser, because a laser does very little damage to the gum tissue and so you will only require a local anaesthetic for the whole experience and in as little as 30 minutes, you will be done! Of course, with any operation, you will need to err on the side of caution for a few days until your gums recover but as long as you rinse with an appropriate mouth-wash and relieve any discomfort with some painkillers (if necessary), you will be as right as rain and the owner of a beautiful smile.
