Do you feel like too much of your gums show when you smile?
If you do, you’re not alone. Many people live their entire lives unaware that there’s anything they do to correct their overly gummy smile. They may feel like their teeth are too small, but in reality, the gums are often just covering the teeth.
That’s why this procedure is sometimes called crown lengthening because it gives the illusion we’re lengthening the teeth when we remove the gum tissue that’s been hiding them.
Laser Gum Recontouring
Some dentists still use traditional methods for gum recontouring that involve a scalpel and require stitches. Thanks to Dr. Pappas’ investment in advanced technology he performs these procedures with a special laser that helps eliminate excess gum tissue safely and effectively.
This less invasive technique also allows for the healing process to begin as soon as the treatment is complete. It’s so advanced that there is usually little to no bleeding or stitches needed.
