Periodontal treatment can not only help you improve the health of your gums – it can also enhance the overall appearance of your smile! If you are affected by excess gum tissue along the teeth, or if the look of your teeth has been altered by gum recession, Dr. Daniel Lauer offers a number of state-of-the-art cosmetic enhancement options that can significantly improve these issues. Plus, with the use of laser technology for many of our procedures, Dr. Lauer can provide you with non-surgical, virtually painless gum treatment.
Although many general dentists offer cosmetic periodontal enhancement treatments, it’s very important that patients consider treatments that are offered by a specialist. Dr. Lauer is a board-certified periodontist with an extensive range of experience treating aesthetic gum conditions. With the combination of a skilled periodontist and advanced laser techniques, Dr. Lauer can help you attain your goals with beautiful results.

Aesthetic Gum Lift
There are now virtually painless treatment techniques to reduce excess gum tissue and improve the appearance of a “gummy smile.” With the Waterlase MD™ laser, Dr. Lauer can reshape and recontour the gums and make the gums appear more balanced and symmetrical with the teeth.
A laser aesthetic gum lift can have a number of benefits, including:
- Reduces excess gum tissue
- Enhances the symmetry of the gums to the teeth
- Treatment is virtually painless
- Reduces bleeding during treatment
- Reduces swelling
- Reduces recovery time
During the aesthetic gum lift procedure, Dr. Lauer will guide the advanced laser device along your gums, precisely recontouring the excess gum tissue for improved cosmetic results. The laser is designed for exceptional accuracy and precision, targeting only the affected areas without harming surrounding tissues. The entire procedure usually takes under one hour to complete, and you should feel little to no discomfort during or after treatment.
Aesthetic gum lifting can resolve lifelong issues you may have had with the appearance of your gums, and help you smile with much more confidence!
Emdogain™ – A Gum Grafting Alternative
Gums that have receded due to gum disease, trauma, or other factors can often be effectively restored – and it may not require surgical gum grafting to do it. Emdogain™ is a remarkable regenerative gum therapy that can actually help the gums re-grow. The innovative solution that composes Emdogain™ is gently filled into affected areas of the gums and around the teeth. Over the next few weeks, the tissues will repair themselves, improving areas where the gum has moved away from the teeth by adding new tissue. The process takes several months to reach the most optimal results, but the initial effects noticeably take shape not long after the initial treatment. Emdogain™ makes it possible to fill in small holes and gaps between the teeth caused by gum recession, and give your entire mouth a more refreshed and healthier appearance.
