Correct Your Gummy Smile
If your gums are too prominent, you’ve probably noticed them in photos and felt self-conscious about them. A gummy smile can also make your teeth appear smaller than they are, which can lead to more social embarrassment. Get your confidence back with a visit to our cosmetic dentist for laser gum reshaping.Gummy Smile Treatment at Cosmetic Dental Associates - Dr. John Moore San Antonio, TX Dentist Read Transcript
Cosmetic shaping is a relatively new, relatively unique procedure that we do here. This came about from the person that finished braces or finished Invisalign, their teeth really looked good, but they had maybe some chips in the teeth, chips too fine to restore, not serious enough to demand something like veneers be placed on the teeth. But because they were chipped or a little worn, crooked, or not quite the same length as each other, we straighten all the teeth out, and then with some cosmetic shaping, we come in, we straighten all the edges out and get each of the little separation points just right, so when you're finished, the whole case really looks nice.
When we started doing that, we realized there's a whole area of the public that could have their teeth shaped. They didn't have braces, they didn't have veneers, or they did have veneers or not. But they have some issues with their teeth that are, just really to get them nice, are only going to require just the right touch in shaping and polishing to correct subtle little misalignments and subtle little discrepancies in the case, get them so they really look nice. It's funny how little of that you need to do to make such a big improvement in the way the smile looks. It's a very fast and inexpensive way to achieve some final finishing results.
Dr. Moore uses a special soft-tissue laser to push back your gumline and expose more of your teeth. In the past, this procedure was performed with a scalpel, which required stitches and a longer healing time. However, patients love our laser reshaping because treatment is quick and comfortable – and no stitches are needed!
