Laser Gum Contouring in Halifax, NS

Want an easy way to boost your self-confidence? Just improve your smile. An attractive smile enhances your self-confidence and helps to create a great first impression. But cosmetic complications, such as uneven or overly long gums, can detract from your smile’s overall appearance. An easy way to correct this problem is a cosmetic procedure known as laser gum contouring. Laser gum contouring is a procedure that evens out uneven gums to create a healthy aesthetic pleasing smile. The procedure may also be suitable if you have overexposed teeth that are caused by gum recession.

People can have overly long gums (also known as a “gummy smile”) from genetics or specific medications. A gummy smile is problematic since it can cover your teeth and make them look shorter than they really are. If you have uneven or overly long gums, we may recommend laser gum contouring as a way to improve your smile’s appearance.

During this procedure, your gums will be numbed with a local anesthetic so that you will remain comfortable. The dentist will then use a special laser which emits a powerful precise beam of energy to remove the extra gum tissues covering your teeth. The tissues are sealed to stop bleeding. This entire procedure is painless and you won’t feel a thing. In just one procedure you can have a healthier attractive smile.
