How Can I Improve the Appearance of Excess Gum Tissue?


Advancements in dental technology have developed new laser techniques for improving the appearance and health of gum (gingival) tissue. Using a specialized dental laser, Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist Michael Kosdon, DDS can potentially transform a “gummy smile” into a beautifully balanced gumline and smile. A custom laser gum lift procedure is designed to both eliminate excess tissue and lengthen the appearance of the teeth. Often, a laser gum lift is performed in combination with placement of porcelain veneers and/or crowns to optimize the aesthetic outcome.

On our sister website, Dr. Kosdon explains the benefits of laser gum recontouring and also details the various cosmetic gum concerns he commonly treats at his practice: Read the full content of this blog.
