Gum Contouring

Laser Gum Contouring

Your gums play as much of a role in your smile’s appearance as your teeth do, and patients with a “gummy” smile may feel as though their smiles are not at their best. Excessive and uneven gum tissues can develop for a number of reasons, including as a result of medications and some medical conditions. With cosmetic gum contouring, Dr. Carmona can reshape your gum line to create a more symmetrical and attractive smile.

While traditional gum contouring is performed with a scalpel, Dr. Carmona prefers to utilize our advanced soft-tissue diode laser for a more comfortable experience. Unlike a scalpel, the laser generates minimal to no bleeding, and there is no need for sutures afterwards. Laser technology is also more accurate than scalpel surgery, and can make gum contouring significantly more precise.
