Most people know they can get a bright smile easily enough through different cosmetic dental procedures. However, another issue that may keep you from smiling is the appearance of what is known as a “gummy smile.” This means much of your gum line shows when you smile, causing your teeth to look small or short.

The Las Vegas cosmetic dentists Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar have the skill and experience necessary to transform your gummy smile into one that is more aesthetically pleasing to you through the use of dental lasers. Dental lasers are used to remove excess gum tissue that is causing your gummy smile in a procedure also known as gum recontouring.

Gummy Smile Procedure

Your mouth is anesthetized before the soft tissue laser is used to vaporize unwanted gum tissue. The heat of the laser is absorbed by water in the gum tissue. Molecules are broken down and the tissue is vaporized. The tissue is sealed immediately, so there is no need for stitches, and there is no danger to your teeth. This gum treatment procedure to fix your gummy smile can be done in one office visit.
