Gum Reshaping

Some people complain that their teeth look too short due to their gums growing too long over the tooth.This what dentist refer to as a ‘gummy smile’.This problem can be easily treated.

Excess gum is marked out by the dentist and is trimmed with a laser.This laser tool cauterises or seals the blood vessels while cutting to reduce the amount of blood loss.

After some healing time the results are immediate.If a large amount of gum tissue has to be removed the healing process takes longer.Sometimes the bone on the front of the tooth has to be trimmed to provent the gum growing back.This treatment is mostly permanent and not to expensive.
