Reshaping Your Gum Line for a More Beautiful Smile
Even if your teeth are bright, beautiful, and spotless, your smile might still seem “off” if its outline isn’t symmetrical. A gummy smile, or one that is obscured by excessive, uneven gum tissues, can often be corrected with cosmetic gum contouring. The procedure involves gently trimming away excessive gum tissues to create a straighter and more attractive frame around your smile.
At Celina Family Dentistry, Dr. Newton utilizes our advanced soft-tissue laser to perform laser gum contouring in lieu of traditional gum surgery. Without the need for a scalpel, laser gum contouring offers more precise results and is less obtrusive to surrounding soft tissue.
Soft-Tissue Laser vs. Traditional Surgery
While traditional gum contouring surgery is highly effective, it is a minor surgical procedure and requires the placement of sutures afterward. By contrast, laser treatment is friendlier to your gums and facilitates faster, more comfortable healing. Many patients don’t need sutures after their laser procedure.
Aside from the cosmetic benefits, laser gum contouring also reduces risks of chronic issues like gingivitis and gum disease, which develop when oral bacteria migrate underneath gum tissue. Daily hygiene and preventive dental care are more effective, which improves your chances of preserving your natural, beautiful smile for life.
