Most people in Leeds would normally associate a problematic smile as being caused by crooked or ‘buck’ teeth, but for some, it can be quite the opposite, and they simply do not have enough of their teeth showing to smile with, because they have too much gum showing. Yet as opposed to those with problem teeth, a ‘gummy smile’ can be put right normally, in just one visit to the dentists and thanks to the use of laser technology, the gums can be trimmed away and then shaped to show much more of the teeth and you only need a local anaesthetic as well. Normally, only a few teeth will need to be done in order to get the smile back though for some, this may only be the start of on-going cosmetic treatments, for example, some teeth may require veneers in order to complete the smile. Because of the nature of laser treatment, it seals blood vessels as it goes along so the healing process is much faster and less painless than if the procedure was done with a scalpel. There will be some discomfort after the surgery but it won’t last for long and can be catered for will painkillers and anti-viral mouth-washes. The whole process is also very painless on your pocket too; if you shop around, some start from as little as £150- that’s cheap for a beautiful smile.
