Laser Cosmetic Gum Treatment in Elk Grove and Davis
Skilled Cosmetic Gum Treatment to Enhance the Health and Beauty of Your Smile
When your gums cover too much of the teeth, the teeth can appear too short and result in what is known as a “gummy smile”. In other situations, excess gum tissue growth can make the gumline around the teeth look uneven.
These conditions not only affect how a person looks, they also make it harder in some cases to prevent decay or gum disease. Dr. Chantry is an expert in minimally invasive gum treatments and can help you beautify your smile and preserve your gum health.
Minimally invasive laser treatment
Dr. Chantry makes cosmetic gum treatment minimally invasive by using a gentle dental laser for the procedure whenever possible. Laser incisions are superior to those made by conventional surgical instruments as they are more precise, heal faster and cause much less postoperative discomfort.
Fixing the Gummy Smile
With a gummy smile, excess gum and bone tissue cover too much of the crowns of the teeth, making the teeth look too short. This can cause people to feel self-conscious about smiling or they may hide their smiles altogether.
The overgrowth of the gum and bone also makes it more difficult to clean the teeth thoroughly, which leaves them more vulnerable to gum disease and decay. It also makes it difficult to treat the teeth if they develop a cavity or fracture.
Dr. Chantry corrects a gummy smile by gently removing the excess gum and bone tissue, and re-sculpting the gumline around each tooth. This creates a natural-looking, aesthetic smile line.
Correcting an Uneven Gumline
Your teeth can be healthy, white and straight, but the aesthetics of your smile can still be impaired if you have an uneven gumline. An uneven gumline can make a smile appear lopsided or can make it look like the teeth have unaesthetic shapes.
Dr. Chantry corrects this by gently recontouring the gumline around the teeth so the gums have the correct shape and are completely symmetrical across the entire smile. Your gumline will then have an aesthetic, natural-looking and even appearance.
