How Can a Gum Laser Enhance My Smile?
Not every cosmetic dental issue starts with the teeth. Gum tissue also forms a big part of your smile, and aesthetic problems can diminish the appearance of even the most attractive teeth. To address these imperfections, Dr. Tara and Dr. Gary offer cosmetic gum laser treatment.
Laser gum treatment is a fast, safe procedure that uses advanced technology to remove unwanted gum tissue and re-sculpt it for the benefit of your smile. Ultimately, the gum line should be balanced so that it complements your appearance.
Problems laser treatment can address include:
- Exposed tooth roots caused by gum recession
- Loss of gum tissue between teeth, making the tooth look longer than it really is
- Uneven gum line
- Gum tissue that overwhelms the teeth, often called a “gummy smile”
The gum laser our dentists use has significant advantages over less sophisticated methods of gum contouring. Laser technology is more accurate than surgery with a scalpel, and the laser seals and sterilizes the tissue instantly to stop bleeding and prevent infection without sutures. Treatment can be completed in approximately an hour, and the recovery period is virtually nonexistent.
A gum laser can be used to address more than cosmetic concerns. Often performed in conjunction with a deep cleaning, laser treatment for gum disease is an effective solution for restoring oral health.
