What is Gum Recontouring?

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

Your gums contribute more to your smile that you may be aware. When you have a gummy smile, you may notice cosmetic imperfections such as teeth that appear small or an uneven or excessive gum line. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, gum recontouring may be the most effective solution.

Achieving the Perfect Gum Line

In the past, if you suffered from a gummy smile, surgical tools were necessary to remove excess tissue and produce ideal contours. Now, thanks to advancements in dental technology, Houston gum recontouring dentist Scott Young can use a safe and effective soft tissue laser for this short, yet beneficial treatment.   Soft tissue lasers offer a number of benefits such as a reduction of bleeding and infection risks. They are also more comfortable and precise than traditional surgical instruments, making them ideal for a majority of our patients.   If you are interested in finding out more about fixing a gummy smile, speak with our experienced Houston gum recontouring dentist today.
