Reshaping Gum Lines


Uneven gum lines and gums that are too large or too puffy can cause your smile to look unattractive. In some instances, gums that are too large can also negatively affect your dental and oral health.

Dr. Garcia and Dr. Sanchez-Garcia are experts at reshaping gum lines around the teeth to help lengthen the amount of exposed tooth crown, beautifying your smiles and protecting your oral health.

Minimally Invasive Laser Gum Procedures

Have you avoided the gum surgery you’ve wanted because you’re afraid it may be uncomfortable? While conventional gum-recontouring treatments used a scalpel, Miami Designer Smiles uses advanced laser technology to gently sculpt gum tissue to achieve beautiful smiles.

The laser treatment has wholly changed gum recontouring; lasers used for cosmetic treatment are precise and give you beautiful results.

As the laser cuts the gum tissue, it also seals the wound, minimizing the risk of infection and eliminating the need for stitches after the procedure.

Laser gum recontouring is performed in our Miami office. Before the procedure begins, the treatment area will be numbed using a topical agent. This approach is much gentler and less traumatic for patients than conventional surgical procedures and allows you to heal faster than standard surgical instruments.

…it’s conservative and many patients can benefit from this cosmetic improvement of closing their gaps and eliminating or reducing the unsightly black triangles.

Laser Gum Recontouring

Why Choose Laser Gum Recontouring?

Laser gum recontouring can help correct the following cosmetic flaws or oral health concerns:

  • A smile that is too “gummy,” which causes the teeth to appear too short
  • An uneven gum line
  • A tooth that has a crown that is too short to allow a dental restoration to be placed
  • Teeth that appear too long
  • Redness of the gums
  • Receding gums
  • Puffy gums
  • A tooth that never erupted through the gums
  • A tooth that has not moved into its proper place in the dental arch, which can negatively affect the bite
  • A tooth that is covered in part by extra gum tissue that traps food and causes decay
  • Feelings of self-consciousness about your smile’s appearance

By removing excess tissue, Dr. Garcia and Dr. Sanchez-Garcia can expose the teeth’s full crown, making the teeth appear normal in size. The gum line is contoured to its correct shape, height and width around each tooth, allowing your smile to look attractive — and natural.

Laser Gum Recontouring for Crown Lengthening

When a tooth needs a porcelain crown due to damage, decay or regular wear and tear, it requires enough natural crown to be exposed. This allows the restoration to be placed without cutting into the gums or causing irritation, bleeding or pain.

Suppose you need a porcelain crown or other dental restoration. There is not enough of your natural crown exposed to allow for easy placement of the restoration without damaging the gum tissue. In that case, our doctors will gently remove some of the gum to lengthen the crown’s appearance.

This step will allow the restorative crown to be placed safely and securely while keeping you comfortable.

Crown lengthening may also be necessary if you’re getting porcelain veneers as part of a smile makeover.

Crown lengthening may also be performed if you have a cavity below the gum line. Treating cavities is critical to preventing discomfort, tooth infections and possible tooth loss.
