Your gums are an important element of the appeal of your smile. Your gums provide the perfect frame for your smile, but if you have a lot of gum tissue, your teeth may look shorter than they actually are.
You may be a great candidate for a laser gum lift, which uses innovative laser technology to reshape your gum tissue, revealing the full shape of the crowns of your teeth. To learn more and schedule an appointment with experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Konig, please call our friendly dental team at (713) 668-2289.
What Is a Laser Gum Lift?
You may be a good candidate for a laser gum lift if you are unhappy with one or more of the following characteristics:
- Your teeth look too short
- You don't like the amount of gum tissue that shows when you smile
- You feel like your gum line looks uneven
Unlike old methods of the past, a laser gum lift doesn't involve any intrusive cutting of the tissue with a scalpel. Instead, the laser ablates (vaporizes) tissue painlessly.
After the treatment, your gums will be in better proportion to your teeth. The gum line will be symmetrical and even, and you won't have to worry about people being distracted by your gummy smile. Although your gums may feel a little tender for several days after your gum lift, the recovery from this laser procedure is relatively quick.
