Have you ever heard of a “gummy smile”? That is the term used to describe people who have gums that rest too low on the front teeth. For these circumstances, as well as several other gum-related issues, Dr. Vo is pleased to provide her Boerne, TX, area patients with gum contouring treatments.

The Most Common Reason for Gum Contouring: Uneven Gums
What Is Involved in Gum Contouring
The procedure is performed by Dr. Vo here in our Boerne, TX, office. Typically, a laser is used to re-contour the shape of the gum tissue, then seal the tissue to prevent bleeding and to encourage faster healing. The end result of any gum contouring procedure is not only a more beautiful smile, but also a reduced risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. And that adds up to better overall oral health!
