Laser Gum Treatment

Man talking with dental technicianWhile traditional gum surgery involves incisions and sutures, often leaving visible changes to your smile, we offer laser gum treatment. This minimally invasive option uses a laser to help with a gummy smile.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate?

This procedure can be used to correct cosmetic concerns such as a gummy smile. Because those who undergo laser gum treatment can get back to their regular activities the same day it’s ideal for those with busy schedules.

What Are the Primary Benefits?

  • You won’t need general anaesthetic as is sometimes required for other forms of dental surgery.
  • Lasers are able to target areas with precision and accuracy.
  • There’s less bleeding, discomfort and swelling because this procedure is less invasive than regular surgery. Traditional gum surgery requires cutting and removal of gum tissue and can cause gum recession.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I experience sensitivity after the procedure?

You may. If you do it may take a few days for any sensitivity to subside.
