Sometimes one small area of gum can detract from an otherwise pleasant smile. The scalloped flow may be uneven, or a thick area may protrude unnaturally, causing a visual distraction.
Just as a piece of art benefits from reframing, gums can be contoured to complement the smile. Fortunately, laser technology often makes this procedure quick, painless, and dramatic. The results can be seen immediately, and after a few days of healing, your gums look perfectly natural. In some cases, more extensive contouring may be discussed. Drs. Andrew and Joya Lyons evaluate many factors before deciding which approach will give you the most beautiful smile.
