Gum Rejuvenation Q&A

What is gum rejuvenation?

Gum rejuvenation is a general term for dental treatments designed to rejuvenate and improve the health and appearance of your teeth and gums and treat or prevent periodontal disease.

Gum rejuvenation might refer to nonsurgical treatments, such as professional dental cleanings, medications for gum disease, and deep cleanings that involve root planing and scaling. It can also refer to surgical treatments, such as soft tissue or bone grafts or pocket reduction surgery.

Your dentist can help you decide the right gum rejuvenation treatments to take care of your gums.

 

What treatments might be involved with gum rejuvenation?

Dente offers different procedures and treatments to rejuvenate your gums and improve your dental health. Dente provides gum reshaping and crown lengthening to maximize the aesthetics of your smile using laser technology.

Gum reshaping

Gum reshaping or gum contouring can change the shape of your gums. For example, with gum reshaping, your dentist might remove excess gum tissue that’s giving you more of a gummy-looking smile.

Crown lengthening

Crown lengthening involves reshaping excess bone and gum tissue to expose more of your natural tooth. Your dentist can perform crown lengthening on one tooth, several teeth, or to even up and improve your gum line. Crown lengthening adjusts your bone and gum level to enhance your smile.

Deep cleanings

Dente provides deep cleanings using a laser medicated technique that allows your gums to rejuvenate and reattach to hard tissues of teeth and bone.

 

What can I expect with a dental cleaning?

A dental cleaning is often a part of gum rejuvenation and involves different steps. During your appointment, a dental hygienist or your dentist:

  • Removes the tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth
  • Removes the plaque (bacteria) from your teeth
  • Polishes your teeth with a rotating brush and special gel

After your hygienist removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth, they rinse away the debris with water.

For deeper dental cleanings, your dentist might perform scaling and root planing to remove plaque and bacteria below your gums to prevent bone loss and other dental issues. Root planing and scaling allows for a deeper clean and reaches below your gumline.

Most teeth cleanings take about a half-hour or less. Your teeth will feel clean and smooth following a dental cleaning compared to your nightly brushing. Fluoride treatments and sealants are also available at Dente.

Dente uses advanced laser technology and tools and techniques to achieve the best possible treatment outcome.
