This patient had suffered from too much gum tissue for years. Not only was is painful when she was eating, but she didn't like how it looked and as a result did not smile in public. In 2 easy appointments, we were able to comfortably and predictably re-shape her gum tissue using a laser. We then did some cosmetic bonding to close the spaces between her teeth and improve tooth-size proportions. She reported having no discomfort after the procedure, and is thrilled with the result. Now she loves her "new" smile that had been there all along!
