Smile. What do you see first?
If it’s your gums, you have what is called a “gummy smile.”
Through gummy smile treatment, our Hillsborough, NC dentist office, Carolina Bright Smiles, can make your teeth the focal point of your smile. Gum reshaping is also a beneficial cosmetic dentistry procedure for bringing balance and uniformity to an uneven gumline.
Dr. Garrett is dedicated to using technology to give our patients more accurate, less invasive treatment. Our gum reshaping is done by laser for more precise results and a shorter recovery window for you. If you suffer from dental anxiety, we can put you at ease during your gum reshaping with one of our sedation options.
Let one of our friendly team members schedule your consultation today. Call us at 919-296-0409 or visit us in the Hampton Pointe shopping center at 603 Hampton Pointe Boulevard, Suite 1. Our doctors, Dr. King and Dr. Garrett, both earned their Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
How Can Gum Reshaping Improve My Smile?
Excessive gum tissue could be a result of genetics or a side effect of medication. By adjusting your gumline, gum reshaping treatment could help in these ways:
- Your teeth will appear larger and healthier
- Your teeth will become the star of your smile
- You’ll feel more confident when you smile
- You won’t be reluctant to smile for photos any longer
What If I Have Gum Disease?
To improve the health of your gums before your gum reshaping procedure, we can treat your teeth with Perio Protect. Perio Protect is a non-surgical gum disease treatment that uses trays similar to teeth whitening trays to deliver medicine where your gums need it most. We also offer traditional scaling and root planing. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss.
