Laser Gum Recontouring
If you have teeth that are straight and healthy, the beauty of your smile may be diminished by gums that extend too far, making your teeth look too small. We refer to this as a "gummy" smile and it can cause people to feel self-conscious.
Ideally, the gums should appear even and smooth and should act as a frame to complement your smile. With laser Dentistry, a "gummy" smile can now be fixed fast and pain free. Patients who have uneven gums or gums that extend to mask a significant portion of their teeth are excellent candidates for laser gum recontouring, also known as gum lifting.
