Any individual who has a high, low, or uneven gumline that is making them feel conscious about their smile can consider Gum contouring in Dubai. But it should be pointed out that it works best for people who are ready to practice good oral hygiene every day.
If you are taking any drugs that can thin your blood, you will need to stop taking them a week before the treatment.

It’s imperative to be on the same wavelength as your orthodontist. Before treatment, be sure that you both talk about the possible results as well as the side-effects.
Did you know that the practice of cosmetic gum enhancement was introduced in the late 1980s and before that, these treatments were being performed only to treat gum diseases? It’s true.

So, if you are thinking about having oral surgery to remove surplus gum tissues, it is vital to do some research to find out what kinds of options are available and which one is right for you. Read on:
Before the development of lasers, periodontitis used a scalpel to remove extra gum tissues but the discomfort was higher in this invasive approach, plus, it led to a very long recovery time in most cases. Due to these drawbacks, researchers felt an urgent need to develop a safer solution in order to tackle the overgrowth of gum tissues safely. They had worked hard for many years and ultimately they got success in their life and introduced laser gingivectomy. This approach is fairly painless and has zero downtime.
The orthodontist starts the procedure by applying a numbing cream to the gums to avoid discomfort and pain that might occur. He then utilizes a specialized laser device to target extra gum tissues. Laser sculpts the gum line and the patient achieves the smile of their dreams permanently.
