It’s a testament to the time and technology that has been pumped into dentistry, that there is nothing that can’t be changed to improve the way you smile and give you a better quality of life in London W1. One such example of this is the ‘gummy’ smile. This is a condition that is inherited and can seriously hinder the way you express yourself. However, in just 30 minutes and for around a few hundred pounds, this problem can be eliminated for ever! Your dentist will first sit you down and get you to smile to determine what teeth are being hindered by too much gum. Then after a local anaesthetic, out comes the laser and slowly but surely, your gums will be contoured into a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The use of a laser does very little damage to the gum tissue and it heals remarkably quickly, though for a few days after, there may be some discomfort, but nothing that can’t be soothed by a few mild painkillers and a medicated mouthwash. In extreme cases, you may require some extra cosmetic work done in the form of cosmetic bonding or dental veneers, but one thing’s for sure, you’ll never feel shy about smiling again.
