- Gummy smile
Gum health is imperative to maintaining overall oral health. The gums are an integral part of stabilizing and protecting teeth. Aesthetically, gums play an important role in balancing the appearance of the smile. Patients with gummy smiles, or with receding gum lines, often seek cosmetic solutions for contouring the gum line for a more attractive smile. Laser dentistry offers a noninvasive option that can precisely restore the gum line and bring balance to the smile.
Gums are susceptible to a bacterial infection known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a progressive bacterial infection that can damage the gums and result in gum recession, tooth loss, and even cardiovascular disease. Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive technique that can remove the bacteria from the deep pockets it forms in inside the gums line.
Dr. Haddad is the best cosmetic dentist in Ventura county. Hands-down. I went to three other cosmetic dentists and none of them showed me what my teeth could look like before they cut my teeth. Plus she did something called prep less veneers and didn't have to cut my teeth…Irene L.
I would recommend Dr. Haddad and her office to anybody who is truly looking for an amazing dentist. Dr. Haddad is very personable, she's excellent at what she does and I can honestly say she is the best dentist I've ever been to. Beyond that, her staff is fabulous. Norma…Michele G.

Laser Dentistry What to Expect
Patients can expect a virtually painless experience. Laser dentistry greatly reduces discomfort, swelling and bleeding. Laser dentistry requires no cutting, no drilling, and no sutures, and is often used for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. Laser therapy can help to recover gums from periodontal disease or to restore the aesthetics to the smile. Laser dentistry greatly reduces the chances for post-treatment infection and even helps to stimulate natural tissue regeneration speeding up recovery times.
Receding Gum Lines
For patients who have a receding gum line laser dentistry can recontour their gum line. Receding gum lines make patients more susceptible to exposed tooth roots or even tooth loss. Dr. Haddad can use laser dentistry to push the gum line down to restore the balance between the teeth and gum line.
Patients with gummy smiles can use laser dentistry to push the gum line back, recontouring a natural gumline for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
The laser will be used to clean the pockets of bacteria out of the gums. For advanced cases of gum disease, laser dentistry can eliminate the need for traditional gum surgery allowing for a less invasive procedure that reduces downtimes and the need for sutures. Gum disease can be successfully managed using laser therapy.
