Gum Reshaping / Gummy Smile Treatment

Say goodbye to your “gummy” smile! Visit our trusted Edgewood, KY dentists in Edgewood Dental Care for painless gum reshaping with high-tech dental lasers!

What Is Gum Reshaping?

Our top-notch Edgewood, KY dentists — Drs. McMahon, Peak, Ford, Wilson, or Middendorf — use state-of-the-art dental lasers to painlessly reshape your gums and give you the balanced smile you want. Noninvasive gum reshaping is also helpful if you have recently undergone gum disease treatment and have an uneven gumline you want to fix.

Many of our patients also combine a gum treatment with other cosmetic dentistry options as part of a comprehensive smile makeover!

What Is The Gum Reshaping Process?

To plan your gum reshaping procedure, we will examine your mouth and take digital X-rays of your teeth and underlying bone structure.

After determining your gums are in good condition to heal quickly, we will:

  • Administer local anesthesia (and dental sedation by request) to make you comfortable
  • Gently remove excess gum tissue and even out your gumline, using our state-of-the-art soft-tissue LANAP laser

Our team has received special training to provide this superior LANAP laser gum procedure to you. You will have no bleeding, minimal pain, and a quick recovery. Normally, the whole procedure takes no more than an hour.

Dr. Kevin McMahon has achieved Diplomate status in the International Dental Implant Association, received his IV sedation certification with advanced airway and emergency management, achieved Invisalign Preferred Provider status, and has been LANAP certified to treat gum disease.

How Quickly Will I Recover?

Your recovery from gum reshaping will take only a few days, thanks to our state-of-the-art laser. You may experience some discomfort, but we will provide you with instructions to help you heal as quickly as possible.

If you are ready for your grin to show more of your teeth, not your gums, let Edgewood Dental Care revive your smile with our laser gum reshaping. Contact our Edgewood, KY dentists for a consultation at 859-474-7830 or request a visit through our online form.
