What A Gummy Smile Treatment Can Do For You

Even if your gums are healthy and pink, you may be less than happy with how much of them show when you smile. At Uptown Dental Associates, we don’t just do teeth. We can improve every aspect of your smile, including your gumline.

Following a gum reshaping treatment, you will have an ideal balance of teeth and gums – not to mention a significant boost in self-esteem! Instead of worrying about your appearance, you’ll be able to fully enjoy each happy moment!

What To Expect During Your Gummy Smile / Gum Reshaping Treatment

When you arrive at our Albuquerque, NM dentist office, our friendly team members will greet you warmly and help you relax. Then, we will:

  • Closely examine the inside of your mouth and carefully plan your “gummy smile” treatment based on your smile goals
  • Numb the area for optimum comfort
  • Quickly remove a small amount of excess gum tissue using our state-of-the-art NV Pro 3 dental laser

Depending on how much tissue needs to be removed, we may need to use traditional oral surgery methods for your gum reshaping treatment.

To help put you at ease, we can provide a variety of comfort items. We can also help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
