When you look at a smile, the teeth are not the only thing that makes a smile beautiful. The gums play an important role in a great looking smile. A “Gummy Smile” can be a quick and easy fix.

What is Gum Recontouring?

At Alafaya Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we offer Gum Recontouring or Smile Lifts. This procedure involves the use of a pain-free laser to recontour and reshape the gum. This advanced technology is quick, efficient, and virtually painless.  

The process starts with Dr. Micahelson administrating a small amount of local anesthetic. We then use a powerful, yet gentle laser to remove small amounts of gum tissue. By using a laser the risk of bleeding is reduced because the tissue and blood vessels are sealed with the laser. After the procedure, there is no downtime. Your gums can be a little sore (like a pizza burn) but brushing and flossing are very important for the healing process.
