If you have a “gummy smile,” where you have an excess of gum tissue, our dentist may be able to improve the aesthetic of your smile with cosmetic gum shaping in Longmont, Colorado. Patients with excessive gum tissue often have teeth that appear shorter than natural, often with gums that are visually bulky. Gum shaping, also known as a gingivectomy or crown lengthening, is a procedure in which Dr. Todd M. Roby gently and precisely removes excess gum tissue, revealing more of the tooth structure and providing you with an aesthetic smile. This service typically can be completed during one appointment with our team.
Dr. Roby may recommend this treatment if you have an uneven, asymmetrical or bulky gum line. Because our dentist and team utilize laser dentistry at our office, your procedure will be fast, precise and comfortable. Dental lasers speed up both the treatment and healing time, giving you the results you want without a long wait. If you have any questions about enhancing your smile with cosmetic gum shaping, contact a member of our team at 303-776-2020. We would be happy to talk to you in-depth about your smile needs, helping you determine if this treatment is right for you.
