Laser Gum Reshaping - Dentist

Laser Gum Reshaping


Laser gum reshaping is a cosmetic procedure that allows you to achieve a more uniform gum line, highlighting your teeth instead of your gums. This procedure can be used to remove excess gum tissue, or to refine an uneven gum line. Dr. Rothenberg uses the versatile Waterlase MD® laser to perform laser gum reshaping. The laser cauterizes blood vessels as it removes tissue, which eliminates the need for stitches. This system minimizes the risk of inflammation and bleeding, and offers a short recovery. As compared to traditional techniques involving a scalpel, laser gum reshaping is a virtually painless procedure that can transform your smile. Many patients undergo laser gum reshaping prior to porcelain veneer placement or dental bonding in order to create a dramatic aesthetic improvement.
