Laser Gum Contouring is defined as a cosmetic procedure wherein your gums are reshaped to give you a perfect smile. Even if you have a perfect set of white teeth, aligned in perfect fashion – the structure of your gums can diminish the quality of your smile. This is called a gummy smile. This can be corrected by means of laser gum countering.
This procedure was initially done with a scalpel – an agonizing way to contour your gums since it entails bleeding and recovery from scratches. Now that dental procedures are modernized, laser gum contouring can now be done without a scalpel. With the use of a laser, you can further sculpt your gum to perfectly match your set of white teeth.
In Laser gum contouring, we will need to administer a local anesthesia. This will help you reduce discomfort as we expose your gums into a diode laser. As the anesthesia take effect, we carefully remove all the excess tissues and sculpt your gums to a more improved shaped. Since we use laser, there will no amount of bleeding as compared to the use of scalpel. This also can prevent and chance of infection as little cautery is done. This entire procedure can be done in an hour, depending on the extent of gum contouring.
After the procedure, the anesthesia will eventually wear out causing you to feel pain and other discomfort. We will prescribe you with simple pain relievers to address that. We also recommend that you take a rest for about a week since you gums will be inflamed around that time. This will interfere your usual eating patterns and speaking ways. We also recommend that you eat foods that are soft and easy to swallow. This will allow your gums to lessen activity providing quick recovery.
