Laser Gum Contouring

Tired of your gummy smile? Laser gum contouring reveals more of your teeth and immediately and permanently transforms your entire smile so it is bigger and brighter. At Natural Smiles in Louisville, KY, Dr. Kiran Gill uses sophisticated laser technology to eliminate extra gum tissue and deliver stunning smile makeovers.

How Laser Gum Contouring Works

It’s the type of unique alignment Laser gum contouring is sometimes referred to as laser gum recontouring or a laser gum lift. No matter what term is used, the goal is the same – to reshape the gum line, reveal more tooth enamel, and create a balanced and symmetrical smile. Here is a general idea of how the process works:

  • A local anesthetic is administered.
  • The laser is maneuvered carefully around the teeth.
  • Excess gum tissue is trimmed, reshaped, and contoured with great precision.
  • The process takes about 30 minutes.

Why It’s Worth Pursuing a Laser Gum Lift

Many people with a gummy smile learn to live with this characteristic, no matter how unhappy it makes them. There is nothing inherently wrong with excess gum tissue. It can define a look for some people and give them a memorable smile, though excess gum tissue combined with short teeth can make a person look juvenile. In general, though, most people want a lot of tooth showing – they want a wide, big smile with a lot less gum tissue.

You don’t have to just dream about a balanced smile. You can do something about it thanks to the ease of a laser gum lift. Here are just some of the reasons why it’s worth pursuing this treatment:

  • Noninvasive procedure
  • Permanent results
  • Comfortable treatment
  • Lengthens short teeth
  • Enables healthier gums and teeth
  • Equalizes uneven gum line
  • Dramatic, immediate results
  • Quick healing

Don’t fear the loss of gum tissue or worry about the feel of the procedure. The modern laser gum contouring treatment is state-of-the-art and your Louisville dentist is highly experienced in meticulously trimming tissue and reshaping smiles to create a flattering tooth-to-gum ratio.

Are You a Good Candidate for Gum Contouring?

Many people have lived unhappily with excess gum tissue because of a short or high upper lip, enlarged gums, poorly erupted teeth, or an overgrown upper jaw – and none of these characteristics are your fault. DNA simply dished out the gums you have. No one has a say in what kind of gum tissue they have – until now.

With laser gum contouring, you and your dentist get to decide how much gum tissue you have showing. What satisfies you is subjective – there is no right or wrong amount, but there is an amount that makes you feel great about your smile and yourself.
