Cosmetic dentistry is more than just having a beautiful, healthy smile. You don’t want to ever forget about your gums. They’re an important part of our oral health, and we want them to look good so you feel your very best. You want a balanced, well-proportioned gum line, not excessive, thick, or uneven tissue. This is what some people refer to as a “gummy” smile.
Thanks to advancements in laser technology, gum recontouring is easier than ever to complete for your cosmetic dentist in Lexington. We can use a special soft tissue laser to eliminate your excess gum tissue and recreate a more balanced gum line. The end result? A smooth, beautiful contour along your teeth. Gum recontouring can:
- Bring back balance to your gum to tooth ratio
- Reveal more of the tooth’s body creating a longer appearance
- Give you a smile that’s dramatically improved overall
