Before and After Gum Sculpting Treatment

“Ever since I was 10 years old, I always hated getting my picture taken.  In every picture where I am smiling my teeth always looked too short.”

Before Gum Sculpting | Dr. Scott L. Tamura DMD, LVIF

“I talked to my dentist about getting some cosmetic dentistry done so I could have the beautiful smile I had always wanted.  She said she could make my teeth look longer using Porcelain Veneers.  She said that I would need six veneers on all my upper front teeth and it would cost $9,000.  I was so depressed that it was going to cost so much that I told my best friend.  She said that I should see her dentist, Dr. Scott Tamura in Marina Del Rey.  I went in for a consultation with Dr. Tamura and he told me that I didn’t need Porcelain Veneers.  He told me that my teeth were normally shaped, but just covered up by excess gum tissue.  He said he could do a procedure called GUM SCULPTING where he gently removed the excess gum tissue using a Dental Laser and my front teeth would not look too short anymore.”
