Laser Gum Surgery for People with Gummy Smiles

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Healthy gum tissue compliments and frames your teeth. If your gums are well contoured, your teeth and smile will look healthier. If your gum tissue becomes red and swollen, this can make your teeth and smile look unhealthy and unattractive

If your teeth look too small or too short because of the disproportionate size relationship between your teeth and gums, you may consider laser gum contouring. This can make your teeth look like they are out of line or give them a flat appearance. Laser gum contouring can remove the excess gum tissue around your teeth in order to expose more of the crown of your tooth. Gum contouring can also be used if your gums are uneven around your teeth.

Manalapan Prosthodontist, Dr. James Courey uses a laser to change the look and shape of the gums. The laser actually vaporizes unnecessary and unsightly tissue, leaving healthy, normal looking gums in place. The laser is unmatched in its accuracy and effectiveness. The process takes only a few minutes for most, and there is usually very little discomfort. Typically someone who is a candidate for gum recontouring completes their treatment in only one visit.

Laser gum contouring can give you a consistent, even gum line you need for a healthy and attractive smile.

To learn more about gum contouring as well as other restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures in the Middlesex County, Monmouth County and Mercer County Areas or to set up a consultation, call Dr. James Courey today 732-298-6551 .
