CORNELIUS, N.C., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Steven White and Brad
A 'gummy smile' occurs when there is excess gum tissue covering more of the teeth than necessary. This can occur for a number of reasons, such as a predisposition to having extra gum tissue, or as the result of crooked or crowded teeth. Although gummy smiles are not usually an urgent health problem, they can become issues if the gums create pockets where bacteria can build and grow. Eventually, bacterial build-up within those pockets can lead to gingivitis, the beginning stage of gum disease.
Drs. White and Haines have invested in an Odyssey Diode dental laser to more precisely remove unwanted soft tissues to improve the cosmetic and functional impact for those dealing with a gummy smile in Cornelius, NC. The laser enables the dentists to rapidly remove the gums without undue trauma to the surrounding tissues in the process. Laser gum recontouring offers immediate results, minimal discomfort during and after the procedure and less recovery time compared to traditional surgery.
In addition to solving cosmetic concerns related to having a gummy smile in Cornelius, NC, this dental laser can be utilized for functional crown lengthening before patients require a dental crown. Laser gum therapy is also available to the size of periodontal pockets during gum disease treatments.
Drs. White and Haines have decades of experience offering general and cosmetic dental care to patients in and around the Cornelius area. Those with questions about their gummy smiles are welcome to contact either cosmetic dentist at White and Haines Advanced Dentistry by calling 704-896-9535 to make an appointment.
