Healthy and even gum lines are essential to any beautiful smile. Attractive gums complement and frame your teeth, making your smile look healthier and more attractive. If your gums are red and swollen or if your teeth look too small or too short because of disproportionate size relationship between your teeth and gums, then, gum contouring may be the solution for you. Laser gum contouring at First Impressions Dental Care can give you the consistent, even gum line you need for a healthy and attractive smile.
“Gummy Smiles” are a very common problem, caused by overgrowth of the gum tissue that covers the teeth. 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. Dr. Sherman, cosmetic dentist in Issaquah, uses Laser Dentistry to change the look and shape of the gums. The laser actually vaporizes unnecessary and unsightly tissue, leaving healthy, normal-looking gums in place. The process takes only a few minutes for most with very little discomfort, and is unmatched in its accuracy and effectiveness.
