Laser Gum Recontouring

Posted in Laser Dentistry

Do uneven gumlines or “gummy” smiles make you feel self conscious about the way your smile looks? If so, you’re not alone. Uneven gum tissues can make your teeth look disproportionate, short, or like you have more gum tissue than teeth. In the past, it took invasive surgical measures to recontour the gumlines, leaving patients with a recovery time of 10-14 days after their procedure. Now there’s a new way to recontour gum tissues – one that takes just minutes and has little to no recovery time!

Laser gum recontouring uses soft tissue laser technology that can be used to change the contour of your natural gum tissue. Instead of surgical methods, this laser gently reshapes the edges of your gums with no or minimal discomfort. Recontouring can be performed on just certain concerned teeth, or to reshape your entire smile! The entire procedure takes just a few minutes to complete, leaving you with dramatic results! What was once an invasive procedure to have completed is now a simple, non-invasive treatment that can be completed any day of the week. You can even return back to work or school the very same day.

Gum recontouring is a wonderful way to enhance your cosmetic dental treatments or just to improve the natural appearance of your teeth. Thanks to laser technology, you can affordably and comfortably change your smile into one that you can be proud of showing off.

Is gum recontouring right for you? Ask your dentist about the types of laser technology that they use and whether or not you’re a candidate for the procedure. Transform your smile in one quick, easy visit!
