Causes For A Gummy Smile
A gummy smile is often a result of large gums, teeth that didn’t erupt properly, or a thin upper lip. Laser gum reshaping treatment can trim back your excess gum tissue or even out an uneven gum line.Dr. Roeder on Changing a Gummy Smile Read Transcript
At Dream Dentistry, one of the ways we change a person's smile and change their life is by taking those gummy smiles where we see the short teeth and all the pink, we use a soft tissue laser and sculpt the gum tissue so you can see those beautiful teeth that are hidden underneath.
Laser Gum Reshaping
At Dream-Dentistry & Sleep Care, we do our gum reshaping treatment with a soft-tissue laser for gentler treatment and faster recovery time. There’s no need to experience gum recontouring with a scalpel, which can be very painful and has a longer recovery window than laser gum reshaping.
All you’ll need is a bit of Dr. Roeder’s special sting-free local anesthesia, and you won’t feel a thing during your procedure. If you’re nervous about the procedure, we have several sedation options for you to choose from. You can trust Dr. Roeder to provide you a pain-free procedure. He completed the Anesthesiology training program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical & Dental SchoolElizabeth Q. on comfort items at Dream Dentistry Read Transcript
I have a fear of dentists, have had for years. I had really a lot of problems with my teeth, so I had a lot of experiences. I'm way older than I look, so back in the day, about 100 years ago, really dentists were brutal. I really disliked going to the dentist so much, but it is Dream Dentistry here. They really take care of you. You don't have to worry about it. Whatever level of anxiety you have, they have some way of addressing it. First he tells jokes, and then he can use nitrous oxide, which is a soporific. It just makes you relax and little bit quieted, but you're still alert. You know what's going on.
Secondly, even at that stage, he tells you exactly what he's going to do so you're not laying there wondering, "What's happening? How long is this going to take? " He really keeps you informed. Third, if it's more invasive surgery type of experience, they can put you to sleep in a safe way. They go over the top. They'll give you a blanket, a pillow, whatever will make you feel more comfortable. Because sometimes you're fearful, you do get cold, and sometimes I come in and the air conditioning's on maybe. Even though it's a hot day, I feel very, very cold, more so in the air conditioning. Then they will cover you up.
At the end of the process, they give you warm cloths to wipe your face because you get stuff on your face maybe. You just feel comforted. They take of you, and they give you a milkshake at the end because it's going to be hard to eat if you have had something done on your mouth. I'm not afraid to make the appointment, let's put it that way, and then I get here, and I don't feel any pain. There's never any discomfort at all. That's the best part about it.
