No More Gummy Smile with Gum Recontouring
A gummy smile describes one with excessive and/or uneven gum tissues, which creates an imbalanced gum line that can make your entire smile seem asymmetrical. In most cases, a gummy smile is cosmetic, and can be improved by artfully trimming the tissues to reshape the gum line. For improved results and a more comfortable procedure, Dr. Patel often uses advanced dental lasers to perform gum recontouring procedures.
Laser Gum Recontouring
Traditional gum recontouring is usually a simple cosmetic procedure, but because it involves surgically trimming your gum tissues, you may require sutures afterwards. With our specially-calibrated soft-tissue laser, your dentist can more precisely reshape your gum line, and without the need for sutures or stitches afterwards.
The laser we use is a highly-concentrated beam of light energy that can trim your gum tissues with more precision than a surgical scalpel. That means the results are more accurate and esthetically-pleasing, and there is no damage to nearby gum tissues.
The laser light also emits heat that cauterizes the gum tissue it passes over, accelerating the healing process. With laser gum recontouring, healing time and your risks of complications or infection are significantly reduced.
