Say Goodbye to Your “Gummy” Smile

If you are plagued by such an issue, we invite you to visit us to discuss gum recontouring. This minimally invasive cosmetic procedure could help you achieve your dream look.

During the procedure, we will first make sure you are comfortable. Then, your dentist will use a soft tissue laser to gently trim away excess gum tissue. The laser is extremely precise. Wielded by the steady hand of a skilled dentist, it can provide outstanding results.

After your procedure, you might experience some mild soreness. You can promote healing of your gum tissue by eating soft foods and being gentle when you brush and floss. Most patients do not need to take any time off of work to recover.

The cost of your gum recontouring will depend on a few factors, including the extent of your procedure. Insurance does not usually cover this treatment because it is often elective in nature.

Our team will give you a candid estimate for the cost of your procedure and help you explore your financial options.
