Laser Gum Contouring Process

A gummy smile could mean that excessive amounts of gum tissue make the gums appear large, and the teeth appear small or uneven.

To correct this issue, we use state of the art laser dentistry to carefully target and remove the excess tissues without damaging the healthy tissues. We then remove these tissue and reshape the gum line in the process, taking care to improve overall symmetry and ensure you obtain a beautiful smile that makes you feel proud and confident.

The Benefits of the Dental Laser

Using lasers offers a number of benefits for our patients.

  • There is little to no need for any anesthesia during treatment.
  • There is no damage to healthy tissues
  • little risk of bleeding and infection following treatment.
  • Quicker healing time overall.

The technology offers our patients a comfortable treatment experience and a complication-free healing period, so you can return to your normal routine much faster, often after only a day of rest.

Gum Contouring Aftercare

It is common to experience a little tenderness and mild soreness in the days following the gum contouring.
This can easily be managed with over the counter pain relief and your dentist will be happy to make a recommendation.
While recovering, continue to brush and floss as usual, taking care not to irritate the tender sites.
A soft bristled toothbrush should help and you may also want to avoid hard foods such as seeded bread.
