Laser Gum Shaping

Laser Gum Contouring is a gentle, painless procedure that allows the dentist the ability to precisely recontour, or reshape, the gum line of each tooth.

Laser gum recontouring is a very straightforward procedure where a soft tissue diode laser is used to reshape the gums to create a more even and esthetic look. The gums will feel quite comfortable following the procedure and they will heal fully within 2-3 days, offering a better look almost immediately.
