Gum Recontouring

Enhancing a Gummy Smile

With Laser Dentistry

Do you have a "gummy" smile? Do you show more gums than teeth when you laugh? Do your teeth look too short?

Gum recontouring can reduce the appearance of gums and lengthen the teeth for a greatly improved smile.

A soft tissue laser is used for this procedure. First, we will place a topical anesthetic on the gums to numb the area. Then, using the laser, we will gently and quickly reshape the gum line. Excess gum tissue will be removed; more natural tooth will be exposed.

The procedure is painless. The laser seals the tissue as it treats it, promoting a quick healing time and creating an attractive smile!
