Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

View Our GalleryA “gummy smile” can make many people feel very self-conscious about their appearance, and have an effect on their confidence when interacting with others. However, there are effective treatments available that can remove an excess of gum tissue that’s making the teeth appear too short along the gumline. Dr. Wayde Fawcett offers progressive laser dentistry with virtually pain-free gum lifting techniques that can recontour the gums and restore the appearance of your smile with beautiful results.

Gum Lifting Benefits

Gum lifting is a way to “trim” excess gum tissue and enhance the look of your teeth. Also known as gum recontouring or reshaping, gum lifting can be accomplished utilizing state-of-the-art laser dentistry techniques, which require no surgical incisions in the gums and promote faster healing, reduced swelling, and less bleeding when compared with traditional methods. With the Diode Laser, gum lifting is virtually painless and typically results in little to no discomfort or recovery time after the procedure. Cosmetic gum recontouring can provide better symmetry and improved balance between the gums and teeth, effectively renewing the overall appearance of your smile.

Laser Gum Lifting Procedure

Once Dr. Fawcett has evaluated your gums and created a customized treatment plan, he will use state of the art laser technology to “trim” and recontour your gums. The laser will be gently guided along your gums, removing excess tissue and reshaping the gums with incredible precision. The entire gum recontouring procedure usually lasts only about an hour or less, and you will likely not feel a significant amount of discomfort during or after treatment.
