Do your teeth look abnormally short? Do you have what is sometimes called a “gummy” smile? A gummy smile is caused by excessive gum tissue that covers too much of the tooth structure. In these cases, it is likely that your teeth are not too short but are simply hidden beneath excessive gum tissue. To reveal your beautiful smile, our caring dentist may recommend laser smile design. Laser smile design involves using a dental laser to carefully reshape the gum line, removing excessive gum tissue. This reveals more of the natural tooth structure to enhance your beautiful smile. Laser smile design is a comfortable treatment. The use of dental lasers ensures that your treatment is fast and pleasant; laser dentistry is exceptionally comfortable, often eliminating the need for local anesthetic. Dental lasers also speed the healing process, minimize bleeding, and decrease the risk of infection following treatment. In most cases, Dr. Lisa K. Attaway and our team can complete your laser smile design treatment in just one visit to our office.
