For most of us, smiling is an expression of happiness but for people whose gums stand out more than their smile it can make them so self-conscious that they prefer not to smile at all. This may have a detrimental effect on one’s professional, social, and personal relationships. A gummy smile can also make your teeth seem very small or oddly shaped.
It can also get in the way of brushing and flossing your teeth properly; thereby increasing your chances of developing gum disease due to plaque and tartar build-up. In the past, the only treatment to correct a gummy problem involved invasive and risky jaw surgery.
The good news is that Apex Dental Smile Studio can now fix the problem
and re-contour your gums with a minimally-invasive procedure called Laser Gum Therapy.
During the treatment, our experienced dentist uses advanced laser technology to reshape gum tissue giving you a more balanced, symmetrical appearance.
Since it is not major oral surgery, the procedure is a virtually pain-free way to get the smile you’ve always wanted. Patients may experience some sensitivity for the first couple of days after treatment, but this is usually temporary. Most patients heal very quickly and are able to eat and drink soon after the procedure but hot and spicy foods should be avoided. Results can be seen right after the Laser Gum Therapy.
Don’t let your smile interfere with your self-confidence! Apex Dental Smile Studio can change the look of a low or uneven gum line to create a more symmetrical smile with our amazing Laser Gum Therapy.
Non-Invasive, No Down Time, Fast Recovery, No Pain, Best Result…Now that’s something to SMILE about isn’t it!
