Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

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. Wayde 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.

“I have never been to an office where they took such personal care and time with their patients. Dr. Fawcett personally called me after my dental procedures to make sure everything was healing correctly and to see if I had any questions..”
