Laser Gum Contouring

A healthy attractive smile has many benefits, including improving your self-confidence and self-esteem. However, dental issues, such as uneven gums, can ruin your smile’s appearance. The good news is that if you suffer from uneven or overlong gums, laser gum contouring can correct that and give you a symmetrical beautiful smile.

Laser gum contouring can improve the appearance of your gums if they are uneven or extend too far over your teeth. This is known as a “gummy” smile and can be caused by a number of reasons, including genetics or taking certain medications. A gummy smile can make your teeth appear shorter or smaller than their actual size. Laser gum contouring may also be recommended for people with overexposed teeth due to gum recession.

This procedure is performed by skilled dentists and periodontists. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb your gum tissues. A special laser is then used to carefully remove the excess gum tissue and then seals the tissue to create a symmetric attractive smile.

The procedure only requires one visit and is virtually painless. Contact Trinity Family Dental, Trenton dentist, to speak with us today.
