Gum contouring is a procedure which involves cutting back or lifting the gum line over teeth if they need to be made longer or if too much gum is showing when smiling (gummy smile). It’s also beneficial in correcting any asymmetry in gum lines and hence gives a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
Laser technology has advanced greatly in dentistry. Soft tissue lasers are a safe and comfortable way of providing gum treatments such as gum contouring and the management of gum diseases, lumps and bumps, and mouth sores. Whilst you may be aware of the device in your mouth, it is painless, without any associated noise, pressure or vibration.
