Laser Gum Reshaping
Perfect Your Smile with Laser Gum Reshaping
Are your gums affecting the appearance of your smile? Excessive gum tissue can have a negative impact on the cosmetic value of your smile that no amount of brushing or flossing can negate. Luckily, you don’t have to settle for anything less than the smile of your dreams. At Twin Aspen Dental Center, our professional laser gum reshaping can leave you feeling more confident and ready to show off your smile.
What Is Laser Gum Reshaping?
Laser gum reshaping is a special dental procedure that uses advanced lasers to minimize the appearance of gums and even treat cavities in adults or provide fillings for children. The process is non-invasive and completely painless.
Why Is Laser Gum Reshaping Necessary?
There are several types of dental concerns that laser gum contouring and reshaping can treat. The most common is a ‘gummy’ smile. Excess gum tissue can cause you to display more gum than teeth when you smile, and many people find that they do not enjoy the ‘gummy’ look of their grin. Laser gum reshaping allows your dentist to carefully sculpt your gums into an aesthetically pleasing formation without any pain or discomfort. The procedure can also be used to treat cavities in adults that have formed deep below the gumline. With the alternative involving an invasive dental procedure, many patients prefer laser treatment in this scenario, due to the non-surgical nature of the process. Laser gum reshaping can also be utilized to apply fillings to a child’s tooth.
The Laser Gum Reshaping Process
At Twin Aspen Dental Center, our laser gum reconstruction procedures utilize a Waterlase laser to sculpt gum tissue with accuracy and care. Waterlase lasers are so gentle that they’re able to be used on children’s teeth. It is extremely precise, allowing your dentist to carefully mold your gums into the desired shape with a nearly non-existent margin of error. The process works by using the laser’s energy to vaporize unwanted gum tissue and then seal the blood vessels to reduce bleeding. Whether your gums are uneven, excessive, or discolored, the Waterlase laser can correct nearly every type of gum imperfection.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Gum Reshaping?
Due to the low risk levels associated with laser gum reshaping, most patients are likely to be eligible for the procedure. However, your gums should be healthy and clear of plaque. If you have gingivitis, periodontal disease, or an excessive accumulation of tartar, these issues may need to be addressed before you can undergo laser gum reshaping. Your dentist can look at your smile and ascertain your candidacy.
