Get Great-Looking Gums With Gummy Smile Treatment in Royal Oak

Even if your teeth look great, your smile may be less than stellar if your teeth are overshadowed by excess gum tissue. Dr. Alvin Daboul or one of our other dentists can painlessly remove tissue with Royal Oak gummy smile treatment. You’ll have a more attractive balance of teeth and gums.

This cosmetic dental treatment will:

  • Make your teeth stand out more
  • Give you a symmetrical smile
  • Make it easier to keep your gums and teeth clean

Experience Painless Treatment With Laser Technology

Though some dentists use a scalpel to remove excess gum tissue, at North Oaks Dental we use a laser for painless gum reshaping. With laser dentistry, your gummy smile procedure:

  • Is fast and precise – you can go back to work or resume your regular activity right after the treatment
  • Involves no sutures
  • Has an extremely low risk of infection following the procedure
  • Allows for quicker healing
  • Won’t affect your diet or oral hygiene during recovery

Because the procedure is so quick and discomfort is minimal, you’ll likely require only local anesthesia. If you’re anxious, you can also get dental sedation. Unlike most general dentists, we give you three choices for sedation: laughing gas, oral sedation, or IV sedation.

Once you’ve improved your gumline, you may be interested in some of our other cosmetic procedures, like teeth whitening or dental veneers. Your dentist can even create a comprehensive smile makeover plan for you.

To schedule a gummy smile treatment in Royal Oak, call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522. You can also make an appointment online. In addition to Royal Oak, we welcome patients from nearby communities like Troy, Clawson, Madison Heights, Huntington Woods, Southfield, and Ferndale.

Commonly Asked Questions About Gum Reshaping/Gummy Smile Treatment

What is gum reshaping?

Gum reshaping is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that helps balance your teeth-to-gum ratio. If you have a “gummy smile,” we can use a special dental laser to gently remove excess gum tissue and make your smile more beautiful. Treatment is quick and painless; one appointment is usually all that’s needed.

Your gum reshaping procedure should be comfortable. Your comfort is always our top priority at North Oaks Dental. You can count on our team to be as gentle as possible. We’ll use laser treatment to carefully shape your gums without any pain or discomfort. If you’re nervous about your procedure, you’re welcome to one of our three sedation options.

How much does gum reshaping cost?

The cost of your gum reshaping treatment will depend on a variety of factors, such as how much gum tissue needs to be removed, whether you receive dental sedation, and which option you choose to receive. Your dental insurance may be a factor as well. We offer multiple payment options so you can get treatment within your budget.
