A gummy smile might be genetic, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with one. Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care in Quakertown, PA can do a little laser gum reshaping to give you the smile you wish you’d been born with.
It’s not uncommon for patients to travel from Allentown, Bethlehem, Whitehall, and Lansdale to be treated by the talented hands of our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Roeder and Dr. Kulp.
A gummy smile is often a result of large gums, teeth that didn’t erupt properly, or a thin upper lip. Laser gum reshaping treatment can trim back your excess gum tissue or even out an uneven gum line.
At Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care, we do our gum reshaping treatment with a soft-tissue laser for gentler treatment and faster recovery time. There’s no need to experience gum recontouring with a scalpel, which can be very painful and has a longer recovery window than laser gum reshaping.
All you’ll need is a bit of Dr. Roeder’s special sting-free local anesthesia, and you won’t feel a thing during your procedure. If you’re nervous about the procedure, we have several sedation options for you to choose from. You can trust Dr. Roeder to provide you a pain-free procedure. He completed the Anesthesiology training program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical & Dental School.
After your gum reshaping treatment procedure, you’ll want to be gentle with your gums while they heal. Use a careful hand when brushing and flossing your teeth following your procedure. Your gums could be fully healed within the span of a few days. You’ll be out showing off your big, beautiful smile in no time!
