Gum Recontouring in San Diego

Dr. Spalenka uses a soft-tissue laser to take away excess gum from a gummy smile (too much gum showing).

He is also able to straighten an uneven gum line that is giving the appearance of a gummy smile.

Your gum tissue is like a frame that provides form and shape to the top of your tooth. A less than attractive, “gummy” smile results from various causes, including natural reasons, such as the way your teeth erupted as a child or the way your upper jaw grew. Excessive gum tissue can also be caused by overgrowth of gum tissues due to inflammation of gum tissues (gingivitis).
