In its most general form, this process means lengthening the tooth. In this method, which is also used in the treatment of gingival diseases, the gingival tissue is removed by surgical intervention. It is aimed to achieve a much more beautiful smile in terms of aesthetics by shaping the healthy gingival tissues around the tooth.
First of all, teeth and gums are cleaned before the procedure is performed. Then anesthesia is applied. Processing time varies according to the number of teeth to be treated. As the number of teeth increases, the treatment time increases accordingly. After the gums are removed by surgical intervention, a more aesthetic appearance is achieved.
There is no age limit. Anyone who complains about the short appearance of their teeth or gummy smile can easily do this procedure.
Depending on how many teeth will be applied, the processing time may vary. However, in general, we can say that the process is completed between 15 minutes and 1 hour. When only a very minor intervention is required, the procedure can be completed in just a few minutes.
It may take 3-4 weeks for the gums to regain a completely normal appearance. During this period, it will not be the same in every patient, but usually a minimum of 3 weeks must pass. We can say that the improvement in the tissues and the appearance of 100% of the appearance gained by the procedure occur after 2 to 3 months.
There is not even a single study showing that structural changes and permanent damage occur in teeth due to teeth whitening.
It is not harmful, on the contrary, it is more beneficial. The side effects of this harmless procedure are also mild. Since it is a surgical procedure, a slight pain sensation may occur after the procedure. In this case, you can prevent your pain with painkillers recommended by your doctor.
Since the treatment is a surgical procedure, it must be bandaged for 10 days. Bandages do not cause problems in case of eating. But you should take care to consume softer foods and liquid foods. You should pay attention not to damage your sensitive gums. You should pay attention to your oral hygiene during the healing process. The teeth on the bandaged parts should not be brushed. Other areas should also be brushed with soft movements. Dental floss should not be used until healing.
