If you reveal too much gum line when you smile, a gum lift with a soft tissue laser is an ideal solution. Our soft tissue laser can recontour the gum tissue, greatly enhancing the appearance of the smile. The laser “seals” the tissue as it reshapes it, promoting a quicker healing process.

We can also recontour your teeth for a more pleasing and even smile.

Gum Recontouring
Do your teeth seem too short? Or your smile too “gummy?” Your teeth may actually be the proper length, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. Gum recontouring returns your teeth to the appropriate proportions and your gums to an aesthetically pleasing shape. Excess gum and bone tissue can also be reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. This can be done to one tooth, several teeth, or all teeth to expose a natural, broad smile. To contour the gum, I will place a topical anesthetic on the gums to numb the area. A soft tissue laser is used to quickly reshape the gum line. The laser seals the tissue, promoting quick healing and creating an even more beautiful smile!

Tooth Recontouring
Tooth recontouring is an artful and conservative treatment that returns a tooth or teeth to their optimal appearance. Through contouring, I can quickly and painlessly reshape chipped teeth or smooth out misaligned tooth edges.
