Excess gum tissue is a common genetic condition that can make it difficult to show your smile off to others. But just because you were born with that smile doesn’t mean you need to settle for it if you aren’t happy. With advanced diode laser technology, Dr. Borsky can easily correct minor imperfections in your gums and teeth, giving you the confidence to flash your smile to friends and family once again.
It may be difficult to describe, but gum tissue can actually cover too much healthy tooth, making them appear smaller than they actually are. This is what some patients refer to as a “gummy” smile. Using a soft tissue diode dental laser, we can gently remove excess gum tissue, expose more of your tooth enamel, and make your gum line more even. The result is a smile that you’ll feel comfortable showing at your next social event!
Tooth enamel may be strong, but it is not indestructible. Over time, enamel will begin to erode as a natural result of aging. This can cause your teeth to look worn down and uneven. In other cases, you may experience a minor chip in your tooth or other cosmetic damage. In this case, we can modify your existing tooth enamel to look more even and remove any rough edges that may make it difficult for you to smile.
