Aesthetic Gingival Recontouring
Following the removal of your braces, Dr. Nirenblatt may recommend recontouring your gum line to maximize the aesthetics of your smile.
Aesthetic gingival recontouring is a procedure to reshape the gum line and improve the aesthetics of your smile by exposing more of your teeth.
Dr. Nirenblatt will remove excess gum tissue around the upper teeth to make them look longer.
If your gum line is uneven, aesthetic gingival recontouring can also sculpt the gum line to produce a more symmetrical, balanced smile.
Before & After Gum Contouring
Here's an Invisalign teen patient Dr. Nirenblatt treated in 2012. Look how much more of her upper front two teeth are now visible.
Dr. Nirenblatt's gum contouring eliminated her gummy smile. Our goal is not just to straighten teeth but to create a beautiful smile!
Radiowave treatment, which is used in many fields of medical and dental medicine, provides several benefits for patients receiving orthodontic care.
By using specialized radio waves, we can remove excess gum tissue safely and effectively to expose more of the tooth's surface for better aesthetics and function.
Your gum tissue serves as a frame for your teeth; radio wave treatment is used to sculpt the gums around the teeth in a way that helps improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Ideal Bracket Placement
If your gums haven't receded properly, or a tooth is erupting slower than expected, Dr. Nirenblatt can remove excess tissue and reveal enough tooth surface to place a bracket.
Impactions refer to teeth that haven't erupted properly through the gums. By using radio wave treatment, we can assist a tooth's eruption without waiting months for the tooth to erupt on its own, or without needing to refer you out for an expensive surgical procedure.
