New York Dentist | Solution to a “Gummy” Smile: Gum Contouring

Suffering from a “gummy” smile? Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry offers gum contouring procedures, which effectively redefine your smile. Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry concludes that there are three main reasons for a “gummy” smile:

  • Usually, individuals with “gummy” smiles have excessive amounts of gum tissue in the upper and lower jaws that cause teeth to look short even though they are normal length.
  • In other cases, hyperactivity of the upper lip muscle causes the lower lip to moves higher, displaying more of the gums.
  • The way that the upper grows can also alter the shape of the mouth, exposing more of the gums than normally.

Your gummy smile does not have to be your permanent smile thanks to gum contouring. Gum contouring involves outlining an ideal gum line that will make your smile more natural. Laser gum contouring is a technological breakthrough for decreasing the look of a “gummy” smile in that it uses a laser beam to accurately make incisions. The result to this painless procedure is revitalized teeth that appear larger and more natural.

Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry provides gum contouring to restore your smile and give you a greater sense of confidence. For any question on whether or not you are a good candidate for gum contouring contact Dr. Giraldo in New York, NY at 212-750-4590 or visit

Benefits of Laser Dentistry | WaterLase | New York, NY

laser dentistry

Dr. Doris Giraldo is proud to offer WaterLase laser dentistry. She believes visiting the dentist does not have to be a painful and uncomfortable experience. During traditional dental drilling the cause of pain is related to heat, vibration and pressure. WaterLase does not produce heat, vibration or pressure, making it nearly pain free.

With WaterLase laser dentistry Dr. Giraldo is able to remove tooth decay, bone and gum tissue without harming the surrounding areas. This keeps more of your tooth structure safe, helping you keep your natural teeth much longer.

The following are some more benefits to laser dentistry:

  • Less Damage – drills can cause hairline cracks in teeth leading to future dental problems.
  •  Better Fillings – increases the bond of tooth-colored restorations, ensuring longer lasting fillings.
  • Less Bleeding and Swelling: can perform procedures with little bleeding and less swelling.
  • Less Frequent Visits to the Dentist – many procedures can be done at the same time due to the lack of shots or anesthesia.
  • Flexibility – can be used for decay removal, cavities, root canals, smile design, gum and bone procedures and much more!

What Is Waterlase Dentistry? | New York, NY

Waterlase Dentistry uses a patented combination of laser energy and water—a process called HydroPhotonics.  Lasers have been the standard of care for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as hair removal, LASIK, and wrinkle removal.  The Waterlase was approved more than ten years ago for hard tissue procedures and has been cleared for numerous additional dental procedures since then.

Benefits of Waterlase Dentistry

  • Fewer Dental Visits! Since you may not need shots or anesthesia, Dr. Giraldo may be able to perform cavity preparations in several areas of your mouth at one visit.
  • Procedures performed using soft tissue dental lasers may not require sutures (stitches).
  • Certain laser dentistry procedures do not require anesthesia.
  • Laser dentistry minimizes bleeding because the high-energy light beam aids in the clotting (coagulation) of exposed blood vessels, thus inhibiting blood loss.
  • Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on.
  • Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
  • Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.

What Are Some Procedures that Can be Performed with a Waterlase?

  • Tooth, bone and gum procedures
  • Decay removal
  • Cavity preparation
  • General dentistry for enamel and dentin
  • Root canals
