Cosmetic Gum Contouring
Healthy and symmetrical gums are very important to the cosmetics of a smile.If the gums are overgrown, irritated, reddened or if the gum heights don’t match, it can distract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Many times we can cosmetically shape and treat the gums with our laser in one treatment. This is called Gum Contouring or gingivectomy.
The laser can also be used for a variety of other applications such as gum detoxification, healing soft tissue ulcers and treatment of tight frenums. Gum contouring can also be used in severe periodontal disease to help rid the mouth of irritated gum tissue and begin the reparative process. This allows for a better cosmetic result of the gums and a healthier smile.
