Gum Contouring in Orangeburg, NY

Do you find yourself trying to hide your smile due to a "gummy" look? This common condition occurs when an excess of gum tissue hides the teeth, creating an imbalanced look. At Dental Arts of Rockland, we can eliminate excess gum tissue to reveal more of your teeth for an improved appearance. As a side benefit, gum contouring can also improve your oral health by eliminating problem areas where bacteria builds up, lowering your chances of gum disease, cavities, and oral infections. Schedule a consultation at our Orangeburg, NY dental practice to learn how gum contouring can help you unveil a stunning, confident smile.

We perform gum sculpting as an in-office procedure with local anesthesia. If you are especially anxious about dental treatments, we also offer nitrous oxide sedation and a variety of amenities to keep you relaxed. Before the treatment, your gums and teeth will be professionally cleaned and dried. We will then use a specialized diode laser to eliminate gum tissue to reveal a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The diode laser cauterizes the tissue for minimal bleeding during the treatment. When your gums are contoured, we will rinse your gums so you can have a look at your results. In most cases, gum contouring can be completed in a single appointment at our Orangeburg, NY office.

If your gums have you feeling embarrassed to show off your smile, the team at Dental Arts of Rockland is happy to help you discover renewed confidence. The benefits of laser gum contouring include:

  • Achieving a more proportional gum-to-tooth ratio
  • Improving the overall appearance of your smile
  • Increasing your self-confidence in social and professional situations
  • Enhancing your oral health by eliminating extra gum tissue where bacteria might hide
  • Reshaping the gumline to minimize the appearance of a "gummy smile"
  • Quick dental procedure with minimal recovery period
  • Long-lasting results

Perfect combination of art and science. Dr Gellis is kind and very professional. He really knows his stuff and he makes an art of it. He’s quick and accurate. Combining that with the terrific staff makes a wonderful experience. So great that I recommended my spouse and he also had a great experience. We’re so glad we found Dr Gellis.

Dr. Gellis and his staff made me feel at ease and recommended a treatment plan that was tailored to my needs. I typically have some anxiety when going to the dentist , due to the sounds of the machinery. However, Dr. Gellis and his staff offered a laundry list of complimentary amenities such as a warm neck pillow, headphones, and warm hand wipe to put my anxieties at ease. They were even able to move up my appointment so that I could receive care sooner and did not need to prolong having my crown installed! Thank you so much for your thoughtful attention to detail and patient centered care approach! I'm already looking forward to my 6m cleaning!

Being a physician who was trained by international leaders in patient care, I expect any care that I receive personally to be of the highest standard, just as I would do. Dr. Gellis and his team are at the top of the pyramid, not only from a technical standpoint, but also in how they treat patients. This is the place to go for the best dentistry available.

Kind and friendly caring atmosphere. .I actually look forward to going to the dentist. But it’s even much more than that. I’ve had bad experiences in the past and because of that have neglected my teeth . They helped me through my anxiety and treated me as if I was someone special. And that’s just it . Every patient to them is special. And every person who works there from Dr Gellis ,Collen , Megan , Randy , whoever you deal with is caring and kind. I wish all medical practices cared the same way.
