Gum Recontouring



Gummy Smile Treatment in Boulder, CO

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

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

At Boulder Smiles, we can use gum recontouring to remove excess gum tissue and create a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing gum line. This simple and quick procedure can make a big difference in the appearance of your smile! 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.
