Change Your Appearance With Gummy Smile Treatment

Do you have a gummy smile? If you think you show too much gum when you smile, then yes you do. This can happen for multiple reasons: excess periodontal tissue, the movement of your lip muscles, short teeth, or a combination of these factors.

What matters most to us is that you are happy with how your smile looks. We use a special dental laser for this treatment: The laser:

  • Removes gum tissue quickly and easily
  • Seals your remaining gum tissue, which means that sutures usually aren’t necessary
  • Involves no cutting, so is painless for most patients

While the laser keeps your procedure comfortable, you can receive local anesthetic and/or dental sedation if you’d like. You’ll have a choice of fast-acting laughing gas or soothing oral sedation.

Gum reshaping is one of our fastest cosmetic procedures. It can usually be completed in a single visit. Many people will get gummy smile treatment as the first step in a smile makeover. Once your teeth are more visible, it’s easier to see the benefits of services like Invisalign orthodontic care, dental veneers, teeth whitening, and more.

Don’t let your gummy smile define you! Instead, redefine yourself with gummy smile treatment in Alameda, CA.
