Why do gummy smiles occur?

Gummy smiles can develop for several reasons. Sometimes genetics is to blame for the excess gum tissue, while other factors such as poor oral hygiene can also cause gummy smiles. While extra gum tissue certainly won’t impact your oral health, it can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. This is why people turn to our Athens and Huntsville, AL, dental team for cosmetic dentistry. Through laser treatment, we can correct gummy smiles.

How does laser therapy treat gummy smiles?

We know that many of our patients would rather avoid invasive procedures and surgeries whenever possible. While there are surgical techniques to correct gummy smiles, we believe that by offering our patients laser treatment to correct this same dental imperfection, that we can help more patients get the smiles they want without being afraid of the procedure. Laser treatment is minimally invasive and helps Dr. Beasley and his team easily remove excess gum tissue to reveal more of your healthy, beautiful teeth that have been hiding underneath.

Before the procedure begins, we will numb the area with local anesthesia so that you don’t feel any discomfort. From there, we will direct the laser over the gum tissue that we wish to remove or reshape. Through laser technology, we can also improve the overall shape and symmetry of the gum line. With this treatment, you’ll get instant results.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

If you want to correct your gummy smile it’s important to recognize the benefits of laser gum treatment. Some benefits include,

  • Less post-procedural bleeding, swelling, and pain
  • Faster recovery time
  • A less invasive procedure with little to no risk for complications
  • More precise technology that helps remove tissue quickly and easily
