A gummy smile might be genetic, but that does not mean you have to live with one. We can do a little laser gum reshaping to give you the smile you wish you had been born with. It is not uncommon for patients to travel from Allentown, Bethlehem, Whitehall and Lansdale to be treated by the talented hands of our cosmetic dentists, Dr. Gordon Roeder and Dr. Zachary Kulp.

Causes for a Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is often a result of large gums, teeth that did not erupt properly or a thin upper lip. Laser gum reshaping treatment can trim back your excess gum tissue or even out an uneven gumline.

Laser Gum Reshaping

At Dream Dentistry & Sleep Care, we do our gum reshaping treatment with a soft-tissue laser for gentler treatment and faster recovery time. There is 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 will need is a bit of our special sting-free local anesthesia, and you will not feel a thing during your procedure. If you are nervous about the procedure, we have several sedation options for you to choose from. Dr. Roeder completed the anesthesiology training program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, and you can trust us to provide you a pain-free procedure.

Gum Reshaping Aftercare

After your gum reshaping treatment procedure, you will 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 will be out showing off your big, beautiful smile in no time!
