Your smile is your most important social asset. However, often times people are embarrassed by their teeth, gums, or both, resulting in self confidence issues.
A common problem is unhappiness with gumlines. Whether it's from rough brushing or periodontal disease, uneven gums or "gummy" smiles are more prevalent than you may think. Fortunately, most times this is an easy fix.
Gingivoplasty is the resculpting of gum tissue into a more even gumline. First, excess gum tissue is taken off to reveal more of the tooth which is followed by the recontouring of the gums. This can be done easily and relatively painlessly with a laser. Drs. Ali & Ali are proud to offer Biolase laser dentistry to their patients. Biolase uses a combination of laser and water to provide a quick and unique cutting action that is precise and gentle.
If gum recession is a concern, a gum graft could be a solution. This will cover the exposed roots of the tooth, preventing decay and further recession.
Teeth are one of the first things people notice about you, so why not have a smile you can be confident about?
