Does your smile show off more of your gum line than you’d prefer? Is there too much gum tissue showing above your top teeth when you smile? Also known as excessive gingival display, a gummy smile can have a negative effect on the aesthetics of your smile and bring down your self-confidence. Excessive gingival display can also be a sign of oral hygiene issues.

Thankfully, a gummy smile can be easily corrected with a laser gingivectomy.

At Peach State Laser Periodontics & Implants, we’re proud to offer this modern, high-tech laser-assisted treatment for gummy smiles. Compared to traditional gum contouring surgery, our laser gummy smile reduction treatment is faster, more comfortable and highly effective. Plus, there’s no scalpel, no stitches and no bleeding involved.

Get in touch to find out if a laser gingivectomy is right for your smile.

What causes a gummy smile?

There are a variety of factors that may be contributing to excessive gingival display, including:

  • The shape and size of your lips
  • Your facial muscles
  • The shape and size of your teeth
  • Your gum tissue

Certain oral hygiene issues, hereditary medical conditions or orthodontic treatments may also be to blame. Whatever the reason, laser gingivectomy is an excellent solution.
