What Is Laser Gingival Reshaping?

What comprises an enchanting smile? Undeniably, a row of straight, pearly whites takes center stage. But let's not sideline the unsung heroes of your smile - the gums.

After all, the size and contour of your gum tissue can dramatically influence the overall aesthetics of your oral appearance. Many individuals are now gravitating towards laser gum reshaping, a surgical marvel that can correct the gumline.

This innovative procedure wields a laser to trim excess gum tissue or mold the gums. It employs advanced lasers not only to subtly downplay the prominence of gums but also to address cavities in adults and provide fillings for children.

A gum reshaping procedure conducted via laser is pretty straightforward. The beauty of this procedure lies in its non-invasive nature, making it a completely pain-free experience.

Traditional gum reshaping methods, on the other hand, often involve the use of a scalpel, a technique perceived as intrusive and discomforting, consequently leading to an extended recovery period.

Benefits of Laser Gingival Reshaping

Laser gum contouring and reshaping offers an array of advantages that not only address diverse dental issues but also significantly elevate the aesthetics of your smile. Here are the key benefits that highlight the efficacy of this procedure:

The Procedure of Laser Gingival Reshaping

Diving into the procedure of Laser Gum Contouring, here are the step-by-step actions typically followed:

1. Detailed Examination

Before getting on this pain-free journey that gets wrapped up in a single appointment, your dentist is likely to undertake a comprehensive examination. The procedure begins with taking x-rays of your teeth, the purpose of which is to ensure the health of the pulp nestled within your teeth.

2. Contouring of Teeth

The actual contouring process is initiated with a sanding drill used to shave off small amounts of enamel from the teeth' edges. Then, to mold the sides of the teeth, abrasive strips are used. To bestow a flawless finishing touch, the treated teeth are smoothed and polished, providing a gleaming, aesthetically pleasing look.

Risks of Laser Gingival Reshaping

Undergoing gum contouring surgery is generally safe and virtually painless, boasting a remarkable success rate.

In fact, the probability of encountering complications from this laser-based procedure is low, making it an appealing choice for many.

It's important to note that lasers operate at different wavelengths and power levels, and using an inappropriate laser can harm gum tissue.

A minor risk that does exist is potential allergic reactions to anesthesia. However, this incidence is extremely rare, especially when you choose to stick with your trusted dentist who has a thorough understanding of your dental history and specific needs.

Another infrequent occurrence is the regrowth of removed gum tissue, which though unlikely, can happen in some cases. While complications are rare, there are a few possibilities such as:
