We do offer gummy smile treatment here at our office. For what we can treat here for gummy smiles is that a lot of times, the gums are actually overgrown over the teeth, and the tooth tends to look really short. So, what we can do here, I do have a soft tissue laser here that I can numb up the gums and actually reshape the gums to remove that excessive gum tissue that's covering the tooth to reveal the natural tooth and the natural length of the tooth that's underneath.
For those patients that it's more than just having excessive tissue that's covering the tooth, I can refer you to the specialist, it's called a periodontist, who can look and see if they can actually remove some of that gum tissue and raising it up so that you don't show excessive gum tissue. I've had several patients that have had this work done with the periodontist, and what the satisfaction that they have by actually showing more tooth and reliving some of that gummy smile. They're very pleased with the results. If you have that here, we can talk about what's the cause of the gummy smile and hopefully get that treated for you.

Show Less of Your Gums & More of Your Teeth
If your gums are too prominent when you smile, you have what’s known as a “gummy smile.” This condition can cause you to hide your smile behind your hand, use a “closed-lip” smile when talking to others, or even avoid smiling altogether. If you want the best quality of life, none of these scenarios are desirable.
The team at Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry wants to help you enjoy an attractive new smile. We’ve invested in a special, low-power dental laser that will gently get your gums into shape. Dr. Roessler will use his skills in cosmetic dentistry (he’s a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry) to remove excess gum tissue and balance out your smile.
Our treatment will allow more of your beautiful teeth to take the spotlight rather than your gums. You’ll instantly feel more confident when meeting new people, giving presentations, eating, or participating in any other social interactions.
Best of all, with our laser gum treatment, there are no scalpels and no stitches. As the laser removes the extra gum tissue, it will instantly seal your gums at the same time. The process couldn’t be simpler.
Don’t continue to suffer with a “gummy smile.” Call us today at 847-652-9147 for Mundelein gum reshaping. Enjoy a better life with more gorgeous gums!
