Laser Gum Reshaping and Tooth Re-contouring

The quality of your gums is directly related to the shape and position of your teeth with the gum tissue. Any irregularities in the gum can be easily corrected with gum reshaping using a dental laser. Unlike the scalpel, the laser shapes and seals the extra gum tissue without any cutting or bleeding. The process also reduces the risk of infection as the laser kills all the germs while sealing the gums, therefore giving you healthy and natural looking gums.

Gum Contouring

With this process you can help resize your teeth and make it look perfect. This process takes a few minutes, is pain free and causes very little bleeding. With Gum Contouring you can have that perfect smile you've always longed for. In most cases, people can return to normal activities immediately. There are certain situations where gum reshaping can be used in conjunction with other dental procedures such as porcelain veneers or crowns to achieve the desired smile.
