Gum Recontouring | Boulder, CO

Gummy Smile Treatment Boulder CO

If veneers, crowns and bridges are the “actors” on a stage (the smile), the gums (gingiva) are the curtains, draping the action.

If there is excess gum tissue, (known as a “gummy smile”) it can hide the natural contour and length of a tooth, preventing the “golden proportion” of length to width.

In the past, surgical removal of the excess tissue would require the use of a scalpel and stitches and waiting for weeks for the tissue to heal, not knowing in advance where the final tissue would end up.

Thanks to a diode laser, the tissue can be removed in a safe, predictable manner, without bleeding, blade or stitches. And one can proceed with the final preparations of the tooth immediately – no waiting and wondering.
