Dark Gums Treatment- Gingival Depigmentation
We are proud to provide patients a laser treatment for hyperpigmentation of the gums, or dark gums. While dark, discolored gums are generally unharmful, they can be esthetically unpleasing and a source of embarrassment. This common condition is usually genetic and typically related to an increase in melanin pigment in the gum tissue in certain areas, sometimes throughout the entire mouth. Smoking, chewing tobacco as well as silver fillings may also contribute to this problem. Results are same day with virtually no bleeding!
Gummy Smile Treatment-gingival Recontouring
Cosmetic gummy smile treatment is great option to improve the appearance of a gummy smile or to recontour uneven gum margins. Excess gum tissue may be covering teeth, making them appear to be small. Laser treatment is used to reduce/remove the excess gum tissue to allow to a more esthetic smile! Results for the gummy smile treatment are same day with no sutures needed!
A frenum is a soft fold of tissue that is found underneath the upper lip. Everyone has a frenum, but they very is size and shape. When the frenum attaches too low, it can cause the gums to pull away or even prevent the front two teeth from closing during orthodontic treatment. Laser dentistry allows the frenum to be corrected with no bleeding or stitches needed. This will assist in closing gaps in teeth and prevent the pulling of gums.
