Well, what's amazing is, is they didn't realize that they even had a gum problem. And oftentimes, you know, that's part of the continued education I've done through the years is, oftentimes, people don't understand all that goes into a beautiful smile. So, if we end up evaluating that for a patient in our new patient exam, we can look and say, 'Hey, your teeth are perfect. Your orthodontist did a great job.' I'll give an example of a young teen that came in, and she had some spacing. We're going to do some composite bonding to kind of close some of those spaces. But to be able to really enhance that smile, just some gentle gum recontouring does the trick to give that full, broad smile that patients are looking for.

We Use Lasers for Painless Gummy Smile Treatment
One of the best things about modern dental care is that it gives you control over your smile. If you want to make a change, you can. To address your issues with gum tissue, we have two ways we can help you.
The first option is using advanced technology to improve your smile. With a dental laser, we have an efficient method of removing excess periodontal tissue. The laser also seals the remaining tissue. As a result, you should not need sutures after this procedure. The laser also minimizes the time needed to recover from your treatment.
The second option takes a different approach. Instead of taking away gum tissue, we can reposition teeth so they are more visible. In some instances, we may use both options for a more noticeable result.
Our gummy smile treatments can be effective on their own. You also can make them part of a smile makeover by combining them with other services, such as teeth whitening or tooth bonding.
Create the Smile You Want
Gummy smiles affect millions of people. There are multiple reasons you may have this kind of smile. Some people have more gum tissue than others. The size and shape of your teeth can affect how visible they are. The position of your upper lip and your lower jaw can play a role as well.
