Gum contouring with laser

Gently remove unwanted gum tissue.

Your gum tissue is like a frame that provides form and shape to the top of your tooth. A less than attractive smile results when the integrity of the gum is compromised or the actual gum between your teeth becomes weak. 
A common problem is unsymmetrical gum tissue. That means the gingival margins are not at an esthetic position. The gum tissue could be lower on one front tooth and not the other, thereby; creating the appearance that one tooth is longer than the other. Another scenario would be that the gingival margins of all the teeth are at the same height or the teeth appear to be too short. Then there is the gummy smile. 
With a laser, the gum tissue around the tooth can be reshaped or contoured to give a better shaped, symetrically longer looking tooth. 
Using a diode laser, your dentist can accurately sculpt your gum line, crafting the right fraction between gum tissue and tooth surface. First, your dentist applies a local anesthetic to the gums and removes the extra gum tissue. Then, your dentist will use the laser to reshape the edges of your gums that form a smile. The laser vaporizes and closes the excess gum tissue, avoiding cutting and bleeding. Gum contouring with the diode laser usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes if only a small quantity of tissue needs to be removed. For larger quantities, then gum surgery called crown lengthening is required and is accomplished in one to two hours. This surgery involves a four to six week healing period. 
Gum contouring generates a more balanced smile with an even gum line. When your gums are well-contoured, they look healthy, giving you a more attractive smile.
