Do you have a "gummy" smile?

At Artistic Smiles in Longmont, we utilize lasers for many procedures that fall under cosmetic dentistry, including gum contouring, gum lift procedures, cold sore regimens, and periodontal treatment and diagnostics.

These treatments help your smile to shine bright because they help line your teeth up along the gumline while leaving a proportionate amount of gum showing. Gum contouring is ideal for individuals who see their smiles as being too “gummy.”

How Gum Contouring Transforms Your Smile

A Work of Art
At Artistic Smiles, we think smiles are a work of art, and like all admirable masterpieces, they can be modified to produce the best visual effect. Gingival contour (the gums) are the foundation of the smile. They can cause teeth to appear imbalanced, jagged, short, warped, or polished and sexy, which is why they are a significant factor in reshaping and obtaining a beautiful smile.

Advanced Techniques
A laser can also be used to cure early and moderate periodontal or gum diseases efficiently. We use these lasers to remove diseased tissue while the healthy tissue remains untouched carefully. Lasers can also be used to sterilize gum pockets and remove scaling to stimulate natural healing.

Treatments Options
Lasers can also treat cold sores of the mouth and lips, immediately relieving the pain and diminishing the cold sore faster.

You can see a big difference in just one appointment with a gum lift or laser gum contouring at our office. If your gums have bothered you, please ask us about this procedure and see if it’s right for you.


Dr. Goldtrap listens to me and makes sure to take the time to get it right. I would highly recommend him to all my friends.
