Gum treatments

You don’t have to hide your smile because you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth or gums. Gingival recontouring is a great way to treat a “gummy” smile. By trimming and adjusting the gum lines around your teeth we improve the general appearance of your smile, enhancing the size and shape of your teeth to a more desirable result.

Bleeding gums are not normal, nor healthy. It is usually caused by inflammation from plaque or active gum disease (Periodontitis). Our hygienists are specifically trained to treat gum disease and have a lot of experience in assisting patients improve their oral health to stop the disease from progressing. We do this by cleaning under the gums (with local anaesthetic if needed) to ensure all bacteria and irritation is removed allowing the gums to head appropriately. Deep cleaning is the initial therapy to gum disease/Periodontitis.
