Do your teeth seem too short? Or your smile too “gummy”? Sometimes, your gums may cover too much of your teeth, creating an unbalanced smile. At Stanley Dentistry in Cary, this is a problem that can be corrected. Our highly trained dentists can give you a beautiful, full smile with laser gum contouring or crown lengthening.
How does gum contouring & crown lengthening work?
Your teeth may actually be the proper length, but they are covered with too much gum tissue. Stanley Dentistry can remove the gum tissue or reshape it with the ease and comfort of our Odyssey Dental Laser. Crown lengthening and gum contouring return your teeth to the appropriate proportions and your gums to an aesthetically pleasing shape.
How long will it take?
Laser crown lengthening and gum contouring are quick, comfortable procedures that take only minutes. Using either our Odyssey diode laser or soft tissue lasers, your surgery will be as quick and comfortable as possible and typically do not even require sutures! Recovery is fast and typically involves very little post-operative pain or bleeding.
