Think of your gums as the “frame around a fine painting”—many times that “frame” can make a huge difference in how the “whole picture” is perceived. There are many times when we recommend altering the gum positions using a dental laser, or a gum lift, to improve the relative sizes and shapes of the teeth. Recently this was done on a patient from Wheaton. The dental laser lifted up her gums to even out the smile. Can you imagine how different the result would have been if we did not improve her gum recession and not used laser dentistry? (By the way—this is practically “painless dentistry” as the laser makes this very easy!)
