Using Laser Technology to Reinvent Your Smile
Gum contouring, also known as gingival contouring, involves the use of a laser to sculpt a patient's gum line into a more visually pleasing shape. The use of advanced laser technology is essential to producing the best possible results. Not only does a dental laser allow our dentists to sculpt the gum line with greater precision than was possible in the past, but it also makes the procedure far more comfortable for patients. The laser is remarkably gentle; it removes soft tissue while causing little to no bleeding or discomfort. When the procedure is complete, patients experience far faster healing than was required by more invasive, non-laser methods of gum contouring. In short, laser dentistry makes the entire process more pleasurable from beginning to end.
There are very few risks associated with laser gum contouring, and the benefits are substantial. The results of gum contouring at our La Jolla office are permanent, which means that the procedure is also irreversible. Fortunately, patients of our practice have the opportunity to preview their smile design via our computer imaging system before they commit to a treatment plan.
