“Gummy smiles” are a very common problem, caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue, which covers the teeth.
This unsightly occurrence can be caused by a variety of things, including heredity, health conditions, and even the use of many common high blood pressure medications. A gummy smile will dominate the mouth, making the teeth seem almost secondary in appearance.
We use a laser to change the look and shape of the gums. The laser actually vaporizes unnecessary and unsightly tissue, leaving healthy, normal looking gums in place.
The laser is unmatched in its accuracy and effectiveness. The process takes only a few minutes for most, and there is usually very little discomfort.
