about Laser Gum recontouring

What is Laser Gum Recontouring?

Laser Gum Recontouring is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to reshape the gum line. It removes excess gum tissue around the teeth, which not only enhances the aesthetics of your smile but also aids in better gum maintenance.

This treatment is ideal for those who struggle with a "gummy smile," where the teeth appear short or boxy due to excessive gum visibility. It's also suitable for correcting uneven gum lines that appear disproportionately high or low in certain areas. By removing excess gum tissue, gum recontouring works to create a more even and aesthetically pleasing smile. You might consider cosmetic gum contouring if you experience:

  • Excessive gingival display, commonly referred to as a "gummy smile”
  • An irregular gum line
  • Gum growth related to wearing braces
Why Patients Love Laser Gum Recontouring

In comparison to traditional gum surgery, laser gum recontouring offers:

  • Shorter treatment time
  • Faster healing
  • Less post-treatment pain
  • Less post-treatment sensitvity
  • Return to your routines faster
Is Laser Gum Recontouring Right For You?
Laser Gum Recontouring is the ideal solution if you're self-conscious about your smile due to gum-related issues. It's particularly beneficial for those with a "gummy smile" - where excess gum tissue makes teeth appear shorter and can affect the overall aesthetics of your smile. Laser Gum Recontouring can create a more balanced, harmonious appearance if your gum line is uneven. The procedure is also suitable for addressing gum overgrowth that can sometimes occur as a result of orthodontic treatments, such as braces. 

Before & After Smile Gallery

Maya's Smile Journey

Meet Maya, she has been unhappy with her smile for the longest time. She didn't want to smile because she felt her teeth were too small. She thought her option was to get veneers. After a consultation process, we came up with a plan to simply laser re-contour her excess gums. After the treatment, we were able to accomplish the smile that she wanted and she was not afraid to smile anymore and with confidence. Not all cases require veneers. In this case, we were able to achieve results with minimal invasive treatment.
