Your teeth are the most prominent part of your smile, and the part that gets the most notice. But for a truly radiant smile, you need the right balance of teeth and gums. Too much gum covers parts of your teeth, making them appear smaller than they are. In fact, your smile may appear to be more gum than teeth.
Even if you’ve never been teased about your gum-heavy smile, you’re probably self-conscious about it. But you don’t have to live with a gummy smile. Award-winning cosmetic dentist Dr. John A. Moore, Jr. at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX can give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
Laser Treatment For Gummy Smiles
Get your confidence back with a visit to Cosmetic Dental Associates for laser gum reshaping treatment to fix your gummy smile. Dr. Moore uses a special soft-tissue laser to target tissue for removal. The laser simultaneously removes affected tissue and reduces bleeding significantly. Lasers allow for a high degree of precision, meaning that Dr. Moore can remove exactly what’s needed and no more. You also won’t need stitches in your gums afterward. Stitches are common after gum reshaping using a scalpel.
Your healing time from laser gum reshaping will be much shorter than the same surgery performed with a scalpel.
What You Can Expect from Gum Reshaping
Dr. Moore is an award-winning cosmetic dentist with advanced training and decades of experience. It’s not an exaggeration to say that he’s an artist when it comes to giving you your best smile.
In addition to removing excess gum tissue, he’ll shape the contours of your gums for a smooth, even appearance.
The changes to your gums may seem subtle – until you compare your “before” smile with your “after” smile. You won’t believe the difference. And you’ll be smiling with confidence.
Here’s a picture of one very happy patient who had a gum lift and contour shaping performed.
