Patient Concerns and Initial Consultation:
Our patient, a young woman, walked into the office of Dr. Johnson, expressing concerns about her gummy smile and the noticeable unevenness of her gum lines. She felt that her excessive gingival display was overshadowing her teeth and affecting her confidence. Dr. Johnson welcomed her for an initial consultation to thoroughly understand her concerns, evaluate her oral health, and explain the comprehensive treatment process.

Comprehensive New Patient Exam:
The journey to a radiant smile began with a comprehensive new patient exam. The team at Toronto Smile Design utilized state-of-the-art technology, including intraoral and extraoral photo documentation, digital impressions, and X-ray documentation, to gather accurate and detailed information about the patient’s teeth, gums, and overall oral structure. This thorough examination was critical in devising a precise and effective treatment plan.
Assessment and Custom-Made Treatment Plan:
Dr. Johnson meticulously assessed the patient’s smile, considering factors such as gum alignment, the proportion of teeth and gums, and the aesthetics of her smile. Utilizing the data gathered, he created a custom-made treatment plan tailored to address her specific needs. The proposed design was then printed using advanced 3D printers, allowing the patient to visualize the potential outcome of the treatment.
Treatment Plan Presentation and Mock-Up Process:
With a detailed treatment plan in hand, Dr. Johnson presented the proposed solution to the patient, ensuring she understood each step of the process and the expected outcomes. The team also conducted a mock-up process, allowing the patient to see a physical representation of her post-treatment smile.

Laser Gum Contouring and Crown Lengthening:
The core of the treatment involved laser gum contouring and crown lengthening procedures. Dr. Johnson, with his expertise in cosmetic dentistry, utilized the Dentsply Bluelase Dental Laser to meticulously reshape the gums, reducing the excessive gum showing and creating a more balanced smile. The laser gum contouring procedure ensured precision and minimized recovery time, providing the patient with a comfortable experience.
The crown lengthening procedure was performed to adjust the gum and bone levels around the front teeth, further enhancing the proportion between the teeth and gums. This dental procedure played a crucial role in achieving a symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Post-Treatment Care and Recovery:
Following the laser gum contouring and crown lengthening procedures, Dr. Johnson provided comprehensive post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth and quick recovery. The patient was advised on proper oral hygiene practices, including how to brush and floss effectively, to maintain the health of her teeth and gums. The recovery time was minimal, thanks to the precision of the laser technology and the expertise of Dr. Johnson and his team.
To ensure the stability of the treatment outcome and the long-term health of the patient’s gums, follow-up appointments were scheduled. Dr. Johnson closely monitored the healing process, assessed the alignment of the gums, and made any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal results. These appointments were crucial in guaranteeing that the patient’s smile remained beautiful and her gums healthy.
Additional Cosmetic Procedures:
Understanding the patient’s desire for a comprehensive smile makeover, Dr. Johnson also discussed additional cosmetic dentistry options. Teeth whitening procedures were considered to enhance the brightness of her smile, and the possibility of porcelain veneers was explored to address any imperfections in her teeth.
By combining various cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. Johnson and his team at Toronto Smile Design - Yorkville Dental were able to address the patient’s concerns of a gummy smile and uneven gums, ultimately transforming her smile and boosting her confidence.
