Gum Reshaping / Gummy Smile Treatment

Dr. Derek Tieken on Gummy Smile Treatment Read Transcript

Does an uneven gumline mar your smile? Award-winning cosmetic dentist Dr. Derek Tieken can remove excess gum tissue with a high-tech laser to give you a gorgeous gumline. He can also correct a “gummy smile” by exposing more of your teeth’s surface.

To discuss gum reshaping or other cosmetic dentistry services at our League City, TX dentist office, call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-942-6615. We have private consultation rooms.

Laser Dentistry Benefits

Before lasers, dentists removed gum tissue with a scalpel. Lasers provide obvious benefits, including:

  • Less discomfort. Many patients do not even require anesthesia. If we do use anesthesia, we follow with an anesthesia reversal agent after your procedure. No more hours of unpleasant numbness! You’ll experience less tenderness during recovery too.
  • Shorter treatment time. Reshaping gums with a scalpel often requires more than one office visit. With a laser, Dr. Derek Tieken can complete your treatment in a single visit.
  • Quicker recovery.The laser cauterizes tissue as Dr. Derek Tieken works. So no stitches are needed. And there is little chance of post-procedure infection.

Providing Expert Cosmetic Dentistry

A member of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Derek Tieken has beautified the smiles of pageant contestants, including former Mrs. Texas winners Wendy Gandell and Megan Zucaro. His expertise has:

  • Landed him a spot as a top dentist in Bay Area Houston Magazine’s annual Best of the Bay awards for 16 consecutive years
  • Earned him a place on H-Texas Magazine’s “Top Dentists” list from 2010 to 2016
  • Led him to appear on Consumers’ Research Council of America’s list of top dentists in the U.S.
