Achieve Balance This Summer With Gum Reshaping [BLOG]

You’re a busy mom who’s spent much of the summer running the kids to and from their sports practices. Your weekends have probably been completely devoted to games and tournaments in other cities or states.

Travel ball has become the new little league. It doesn’t matter what the sport is, whether it’s baseball, volleyball, or basketball, kids are not just encouraged, but expected to enter the world of travel ball if they want to succeed in sports as they approach high school and college.

Whether you agree with the emphasis placed on the importance of participation in competitive travel teams or not, there is one thing most people can agree on: a busy sports schedule for the kids is an even busier schedule for the parents.

So what does this mean for you? It probably means that you put everyone else’s needs and wants in your family above your own. It also probably means you spend little, if any, of your time doing anything for yourself that would keep you from being the manager of your household, even if just for a day.

But there’s a way you can achieve a little more balance, and be better for it! You deserve to have the smile you’ve always wanted, and at Ascension Premier Dental, there are many different ways to get it.

Not every option in cosmetic dentistry has to put a huge burden on your time. Today, we’re spending the blog telling you about a procedure for your gummy smile that can help you achieve the beautifully balanced smile you want.

It’s called gum reshaping, and with help from our highly-skilled team here in Geismar, LA, you’re going to be in very safe hands!

Why Would You Need Gum Reshaping?

If you look at your smile, whether standing in front of a mirror or going through old photos of yourself, and you see more gums than you do teeth, you have what’s called a gummy smile. There’s a visual imbalance where you show too much of your gums, and your teeth aren’t the star of your smile that they should be.

There could be a couple of things going on with your smile to make it out of balance this way. You might just have extra gum tissue that grows over and hides a good portion of your teeth, making them seem disproportionately small. Or you might actually have small teeth to begin with.

This is where a procedure like gum reshaping can help!

What Does Gum Reshaping Involve?

It’s actually a lot simpler than you think, especially thanks to our advanced laser technology. With our dental laser, Dr. Bessonet can adjust your gumline so more of your teeth will show when you smile. Because of this technological tool, laser gum therapy is virtually painless

Although we do offer alternative methods for gum reshaping, another benefit of choosing laser technology is that it often will lessen the healing and recovery time. That’s great for busy moms like you who find it hard to slow down for too long!

Is Gum Reshaping Right For You?

Only Dr. Bessonet can help you know for sure. But with gum reshaping, or any kind of cosmetic treatment we offer, for that matter, is at least worth exploring. You live a hectic life, but it’s a very rewarding, worthwhile endeavor for any parent who want to give their child the best opportunities they can.

But in order to steer the family ship effectively means you have to take a moment every now and then to make sure your own needs are being met. If you have a gummy smile, you’re probably embarrassed about it or have wondered over the years if there were a viable solution for your smile.

Gum reshaping not only balances your smile by giving you a more attractive teeth to gums ratio, but it helps you achieve more balance in your life by doing something for yourself that will make you happy.

With minimal discomfort or recovery time, it’s definitely worth looking into to see if it’s the right cosmetic treatment to give you the beautiful smile you deserve!
