Sometimes patients will present to our office with a gummy smile or excessive gum tissue that really bothers the patient. We use a laser energy light to gently contour and shape the gum tissues, to allow proper healing so that the excessive gum tissue or the gums that they're wanting to be removed and brought back into health can be done easily and effectively with laser light. It's a very simple procedure, sometimes less than 20 minutes, and they've got a clean, healthy gum tissue, already healing by the time they leave. So, it's a great procedure for gums.
- A balanced smile that is more pleasing to the eye
- Improved self-image
- More positive first impressions
- Relaxed social interactions by knowing your smile looks great

Unlock Your Confident Smile
You can end up with a gummy smile, also known as excessive gingival display, for one of several reasons. It could be because your teeth came through abnormally, or that your lip muscles pull your upper lip up too far when smiling. It could also be from a problem with your jawbone.
Whatever the reason, the outcome is the same. You’re embarrassed by your gums and may often catch yourself practicing the “closed-lip smile.” Accura Dental understands your situation, and we can help. Our office has invested in a dental laser that will gently and painlessly reshape your gums. The process is simple:
- Dr. Murdock will first examine your teeth, gums, and bone structure.
- We may take digital images to get a better look at your jawbone and check for irregularities.
- If you’re a good candidate for reshaping, we will have your gums tamed in no time using our laser.
Afterward, you may want to consider other cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening or tooth bonding to get your smile in the best shape possible.
