Gum Reshaping / Gummy Smile Treatment

Gummy Smile Treatment using Dental Technology at Family Dental of Spokane Valley Read Transcript

Most people focus on reshaping their teeth with treatments like teeth contouring or veneers. But what about your gums? You may want to consider gum reshaping from trusted Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth if you are not happy with the look of your gums when you smile.

You may be a good candidate for gum reshaping if:

  • Your gums cover too much of your teeth, giving you a gummy smile
  • Your gums are receding away from your teeth, which is often a result of gum disease or genetics
  • You have an uneven gumline

Gum Reshaping with Lasers

You probably don’t care what kind of laser Dr. Craig Ellsworth uses. And you’re right; the make or model name are not important. But you’ll be glad he uses a laser for procedures such as gum reshaping.

And you can feel confident in Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth’s ability because he has completed advanced training to work with dental lasers.

Why are lasers such a good tool for gum reshaping? Lasers cauterize your gum tissue as Dr. Craig Ellsworth works. That means:

  • There is little if any bleeding or discomfort during the procedure.
  • There is little chance of infection.
  • You will recover quickly. While your gums may be tender for a week or so, taking an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen should ease your discomfort.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your gums, trusted Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth can use lasers to reshape them. Call us at 509-850-3217 or use our online form to find out if gum reshaping is right for you.
