Problems Gum Reshaping Can Address

A so-called “gummy smile” is one of the most common cosmetic problems our dentist sees. If you suffer from overly prominent gums or small teeth, your smile won't appear white or shining. Instead, those at whom you're smiling will see enough of your gums that your smile will appear marred and unsightly.

Fortunately, gum reshaping is one of the two primary methods for fixing a gummy smile. It's particularly useful when the prominence of your gums is more of a mild to moderate concern than a significant issue.

Our cosmetic dentist will use his decades of experience to help you decide if laser gum reshaping is appropriate for you.

The Gum Reshaping Procedure

The recontouring procedure itself is quite simple and, most importantly, safe. We understand you might have some reluctance about laser dentistry, but it's important to understand that the dental lasers we use are exceptionally advanced and precise. Science has engineered these devices so that they can hit their targets with uncanny accuracy, leaving surrounding tissue untouched.

And that's essentially how the procedure works. Our cosmetic dentist will use the laser to target excess gum tissue, then burn it away. The targeting will be based on the gum shape and contour you and he discussed beforehand.

This leaves nearby gum tissue completely safe and untouched. You will be deeply satisfied with the new appearance of your smile.
