Do you have a gummy smile? Do you feel embarrassed when it’s time to smile for a picture? There is a simple procedure that can significantly improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Gum contouring also known as Gum Shaping can be done to enhance the beauty of your smile. Gum contouring can increase the beauty and shape of our teeth by correcting unevenness in crown length and removing excess gum tissue.
Laser gum contouring is performed in office with a simple laser procedure. The tissue to be removed is identified and marked for removal. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area for a needleless injection. Once the tissue is completely numb, a laser is used to remove and cauterize the excess gum tissue.
Using the laser, your new gum line is artfully sculpted to fit our tooth shape and lip line, dramatically improving your confidence in your smile. Check out the before and after photos below to see the amazing results.
