Many times, issues with your gums may mar an otherwise beautiful smile. Most people refer to it as a "horsey" smile – the smile where all you see is the gums. You don’t really notice the teeth, no matter how beautiful they may be. On other occasions, a smile may seem uneven because the gums on one side don’t match the other. These problems are easily corrected. Gum tissue can be re-contoured to create a more beautiful, natural smile.
Scottsdale cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox has received extensive training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. His experience creating new, designer smiles for patients includes a deep understanding that a beautiful smile does not just include the teeth, but also the surrounding gum tissue.
A cosmetic gum lift is a reshaping of the gum tissue. Dr. Wilcox uses a diode laser to achieve beautiful results with minimal discomfort and very quick healing. For many patients, the change in their smile is life altering – the freedom to laugh and smile without hiding their "gummy" smile behind a hand can be a liberating feeling.
In very severe cases, treatment in the office with the diode laser gum lift is not enough, and Dr. Wilcox will work with a periodontist using other procedures to achieve a beautiful smile.
