Cosmetic dentistry is changing the lives of patients at our San Jose dental practice. We see many men and women who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, but aren’t sure what can be done to correct the flaws. At Valley Fair Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer a full spectrum of cosmetic dentistry services to enhance your smile, including laser gum lifts.
Correcting Small Teeth with a Gum Lift
Do you have a stubby smile? Big, beautiful teeth may be hiding beneath your gums, just waiting to be revealed. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Swathi offers comfortable, precise laser gum lifts at Valley Fair Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in San Jose. We’ll gently and precisely remove the gum tissue until just the right amount of tooth is showing.
If you are in need of a dental crown to strengthen a compromised tooth, Dr. Swathi may use a laser gum lift in conjunction with other restorative dentistry procedures. Because crowns fit snugly over remaining tooth structure, removing a small portion of gum at the gum line may be necessary.
Why Choose Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is quick, easy, and more conservative than traditional gum surgery. For instance, no stitches are required because the laser seals as it trims away excess tissue. Patients experience almost no bleeding, and most report a speedy recovery, as well. Lasers are often reported as more comfortable during procedures, with many patients reporting no need for anesthesia.
