Happy With Laser Gum Contouring



Laser Gum Contouring

Procedure Description:

We love helping our patients achieve a smile they love! This patient saw our before and after photos of another patient who had undergone laser gum contouring and came in for the same procedure. She was happy with the results!

Gum contouring is often also called laser tooth lengthening. It is a procedure that doesn’t actually lengthen the tooth at all, though. Instead, it is a reduction of the gums with laser contouring for shaping to expose more of the teeth to view. Using a laser specifically made for soft tissue revision means a high level of precision with no danger to harming the teeth, reduced or no bleeding, and significantly less inflammation post procedure.
