Laser Gum Reshaping

When you envision a smile, you probably picture attractive teeth, framed by shapely lips. However, gums have a lot to do with the overall appearance of a smile. Uneven gum tissue can make teeth seem uneven or misshapen and breaks up the harmony of a smile. Too much gum tissue makes teeth look small and stubby.

As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sokol understands the periodontal esthetics — how gum tissue influences a smile’s appearance. At your consultation, the dentist may recommend gum reshaping to even out your gum line or reveal more tooth structure. For quick, precise, minimally invasive gum reshaping, our doctors use laser dentistry.

Village Green Dentistry is equipped with a CO2 laser, an ER:YAG laser, and a diode laser. With special training, our doctors can apply laser dentistry for many gum procedures, from reshaping to crown lengthening.

If you’d like a symmetrical, more harmonious smile, it’s time to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Sokol at Village Green Dentistry. Our Lincolnshire dental office is conveniently located for patients who live in the Chicago North Shore suburbs of Lake Forest, Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills, Libertyville, and surrounding areas.

In some cases, small teeth can be made larger by reducing overgrown gum tissue to reveal more tooth enamel.
