Dr. Francine Kitagawa of Gateway Dental Care in Pleasanton, California can evaluate you for a laser gum treatment today. She knows that giving you a beautiful smile doesn’t just involve having great teeth. If you have too much gum tissue (a “gummy” smile) or your gums are uneven (a “crooked” smile), a laser gum recontouring procedure may be the answer to achieving that broad and youthful smile you long for.
Laser Gum Recontouring
Gum tissue that appears puffy and swollen or unsymmetrical is not an appropriate framework for your otherwise healthy teeth. Our laser gum contouring sculpts and shapes excessive gum tissue to make your teeth look longer and more symmetrical, greatly enhancing the appearance of your smile. Some reasons you may be considering laser gum treatment are:
- Uneven Gumline
- Fix a Gummy Smile
- Fix Puffy Gums
- Small Looking Teeth
- Prominent Gums
- A More Youthful Smile
Since the overgrowth of gum tissue can trap food beneath your gums resulting in inflammation and decay that is inaccessible, this procedure may be functional as well as cosmetic. This allows for a more thorough dental cleaning. This procedure may also be necessary to complete a needed filling or crown.
Laser Gum Reshaping
We use only the most up-to-date laser technology to reshape your gums. Our diode laser provides a concentrated light beam that precisely removes excess tissue while sealing off blood vessels so that you have minimal discomfort and post-treatment sensitivity.
Lasers To Treat A Gummy Smile
As long as it does not interfere with proper dental hygiene, it is not a health concern to have excess gum tissue. Puffy looking gums can, however, be bothersome to the person who feels their gums are diminishing their smile. If you find yourself covering your mouth, closing your mouth, or avoiding a smile in pictures altogether, laser gum treatment at our Pleasanton office may be the perfect solution for you.
