Gummy smile removal or gingival contouring, is a cosmetic dental procedure that aims to correct excessive gum tissue that is visible when you smile. Some individuals have a higher gumline making their teeth appear shorter and create an imbalance in their smile. Gingival contouring using laser dentistry is a minimally invasive and highly precise technique to reshape the gum tissue- it reveals more of the natural tooth structure and creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.
During the procedure, a dental laser is used to gently and precisely remove excess gum tissue. The laser emits a concentrated beam of light that targets and vaporizes the unwanted gum tissue, without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. This results in minimal discomfort, bleeding, and swelling compared to traditional gum surgery techniques. The laser also cauterizes the tissue as it removes it, reducing the risk of infection and promoting faster healing. This approach focuses on providing you with a beautiful, balanced smile while considering your oral health, aesthetics, and overall harmony.
