Laser for Gummy Smile & Depigmentation

What is a Gummy Smile?

Gummy smile is the excess exposure of gum tissue which makes the teeth look small and aesthetically unappealing. A gummy smile can be developed on its own or due to a serious underlying dental issue or an unbalanced mouth shape.

What is a Gum pigmentation?

Gum pigmentation is the presence of unattractive dark or blotchy patches of visible gum tissue. Both the gummy smile and depigmentation can be resolved with laser dentistry to remove excess gum tissue and to achieve a lighter shade of the gums that are pale pink in color. At MSR dental hospital, the excess gum tissue around the teeth is removed to reveal more of the teeth to provide a more balanced appearance and lighter shade of the exposed gum tissue.

Laser for gummy smile and depigmentation is best suitable for those who have uneven gums and blotch patched gum that mask a large portion of their teeth.

Laser for gummy smile procedure

During the laser treatment procedure, a local anesthesia is administered to eliminate discomfort and pain during the procedure. A concentrated beam of the laser is emitted from the device and directed towards the excess gum tissue to remove them and sculpt a uniform gum line. The laser beams do not produce any vibration or heat and is minimal invasive and painless. At regular intervals a gentle spray of water is used to keep it smooth and steady.

Laser for depigmentation procedure

During the depigmentation procedure, soft tissue diode lasers are used to remove superficial layer of gums. The process removes gum surface tissues along with black melanin pigment and transforms them to soft tissue in ideal pink color. Laser assisted gum depigmentation is a revolutionary procedure and it will safely and effectively remove the melanin pigmentation to provide soft pink gums.
