Laser Gum Recontouring

What is laser gum recontouring?

Laser gum recontouring is a minimally invasive, safe dental procedure that uses cutting-edge laser technology and local anesthesia to reshape gum tissue and improve the look of your smile. 

Laser gum recontouring is a simple treatment that produces dramatic cosmetic results with minimal to no downtime.

What are the benefits of laser gum recontouring?

Some of the many benefits you can expect after laser gum recontouring at San Ramon Dental Excellence include:

  • Reduced excess gum tissue
  • Elimination of unhealthy gum tissue
  • No more gummy smile
  • Appearance of longer teeth
  • Aesthetically pleasing smile
  • Better symmetry and balance
  • Easier gum hygiene
  • Improved overall gum health

Laser gum recontouring offers you the gorgeous smile and self-confidence you desire without undergoing invasive surgery. San Ramon Dental Excellence uses state-of-the-art lasers and equipment to give you the best outcome.

Is laser gum recontouring right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for laser gum recontouring at San Ramon Dental Excellence, Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim examine your teeth and gums. 

He reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays if needed, and discusses your desired results before personalizing a treatment that’s best for you. 

You might first require deep teeth cleaning to treat gum disease or remove harmful plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas. Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim can treat mild to moderate gum disease using laser technology, to remove bacterial infection and reduce the risk of future gum problems.

Crown lengthening procedures make your teeth appear longer, which often improves the overall appearance of your smile.

What should I expect during the procedure?

During laser gum recontouring, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Dr. Patel and Dr. Hakim numb your gums and offer sedation dentistry to help you relax. 

He uses a laser to remove gum tissue, improve its shape, and make your teeth and gums aesthetically pleasing. Because the treated area is numb, you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure.

What happens after laser gum recontouring?

Healing is quick and easy after laser gum recontouring and you can resume your normal routine immediately. 

You can expect mild discomfort or swelling for the first few days after the procedure while gum tissue heals. Follow Dr. Patel’s and Dr. Hakim's instructions to maximize comfort during the healing process.
