The "gum smile" also known as "gummy smile" is the fact that a smile, a part considered too important gum is discovered by the upper lip, and that the ratio "tooth-gum" is not considered aesthetic: too much gum, or not enough tooth.
After a meticulous analysis of the origin of this non-harmonious appearance, the periodontist can then discuss possible surgical correction options to restore a smile aesthetic.
Since these gingival corrections can be corrected by periodontal intervention, the treatment options will always be as atraumatic as possible thanks to microsurgical techniques and the use of the diode laser, a particularly powerful tool for this type of procedure. The tip of the laser, as thin as a pen tip, allows us to precisely redraw the gingival contour and thus perfectly achieve the aesthetic objectives that will be fixed with the patient.
The result is immediate, painless, fast and definitive, this type of procedure is widely practiced in our office on a daily basis.
