What is Involved in Gummy Smile Correction Surgery?
If you have been suffering with a gummy smile for years, you may desperately want to change your appearance. However, correcting a complex case of a gummy smile may require multiple treatments, and that is off-putting to some patients who are squeamish about the idea of going to the dentist. However, Dr. Parsa Zadeh makes every effort to make the gummy smile surgery as pleasant as possible in the luxury accommodations at Zadeh Dentistry.
The procedures involved in the Gum lift depends on the extent of your case. To determine what treatments and procedures need to be done for your smile, Dr. Zadeh will first schedule an initial consultation in which he will examine your teeth and gums and formulate a preliminary treatment plan designed specifically with you in mind. As each case is unique, he does not take a cookie-cutter approach, and will do his best to accomodate your desires and what he can do that will most benefit your smile and health. He will discuss this treatment plan with you and answer any questions that you might have about the treatment as well. With every patient, he will work with you to figure out which approach works best for your health, needs, and budget.
After your consultation, Dr. Zadeh will schedule a series of appointments with you to carry out your gummy smile correction surgery. In all but the most simple cases, the Gum lift procedure does not consist of a single treatment. Some patients with less serious gummy smiles or who only need a gumlift or gum reduction can be done in a single visit. Some patients find they do not need additional work after the first procedure as they are delighted with the appearance of their new smile. However, many patients will require a more extensive series of treatments. Due to the nature of the treatment and patient resilience, this may need to be carried out in a number of stages and series of treatments. Due to the sensitive nature of the mouth, the previous procedure must heal before Dr. Zadeh performs the next treatment.
During this time, it is important to avoid spicy foods, smoking, and over-extering yourself as your body needs time to heal. During your recovery, this is a great time to relax, catch up on that Netflix, Hulu, or television series you might have missed, read a book, play video games, and just generally relax.
Despite the fact that the gummy smile correction surgery may require more than one office visit, Dr. Zadeh and his helpful staff will make sure that you are comfortable during your Gum lift treatment. For procedures in which you may remain awake, you can choose from one of the hundreds of DVD titles that Zadeh Dentistry owns and watch while Dr. Zadeh, gummy smile specialist, and his staff work on transforming your smile. Leg massagers and warm blankets are available to make you comfortable as well. Each room has purified air, allowing you to breathe easy as you relax and wait for the procedure to be finished. Because of these many amenities, patients have been known to say that a trip to Zadeh Dentistry for a gummy smile treatment is more like a visit to a spa than a trip to the dentist!
