No More Gummy Smiles, San Luis Obispo!
“Gummy smiles” are a very common problem caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue covering the teeth and masking a bright smile. This unsightly occurrence can be caused by a variety of things, including heredity, health conditions, and even the use of many common high blood pressure medications. A gummy smile will dominate the mouth, making the teeth seem almost secondary in appearance. We use a laser to change the look and shape of the gums. The laser actually removes unnecessary and unsightly tissue, leaving healthy, normal looking gums in place. In fact, the laser is unmatched in its accuracy and effectiveness. Lasers also eliminate or reduce patient healing time and pain. The process takes only a few minutes for most, and there is usually very little discomfort.
