Refine Your Smile

Laser Gum Contouring in Beverly Hills | The Art of Dental Wellness

When it comes to a beautiful smile, we often focus on the color, shape, alignment, and overall health of our teeth. But, sometimes, adjusting the gums can enhance the aesthetic quality of our smile just as much as addressing the teeth themselves. For patients with a gummy smile or uneven gums, our Beverly Hills laser gum contouring delivered by our experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kerri Hill, offers you a simple solution to a better smile. Laser gum contouring is the most advanced approach to gum reshaping, delivering precise treatment and stunning results. Refining the shape of your gums can help you enjoy life confidently by giving your smile a fuller, brighter, more even appearance.

Precision Gum Reshaping

What is Laser Gum Contouring?

Laser gum contouring at The Art of Dental Wellness is a cosmetic treatment designed to create a more even, attractive gumline. This treatment involves the strategic removal of excess gum tissue to create more consistent contours and expose more of the tooth for a fuller-looking smile. Compared to other gum reshaping techniques, laser contouring offers a more comfortable treatment experience and superior results.

How does
Laser Gum Contouring work?

Laser gum shaping precisely removes small sections of gum tissue to expose more of the tooth while cauterizing the excision site simultaneously. This advanced solution to excess gum tissue offers numerous benefits compared to traditional gum removal using a scalpel.

What can Laser Gum Contouring do?

Laser gum contouring is an ideal solution for patients who feel as if the appearance of their smile is being overwhelmed or compromised by excess gum tissue. Refining the shape of your gums can enhance your face’s proportions and harmony, complementing the surrounding features and highlighting your authentically beautiful look. If you feel your gum line is uneven and detracts from your overall appearance, you are likely an excellent candidate for laser gum contouring.

In comparison to earlier gum reshaping methods, the benefits of laser treatment include:

  • Enhanced precision for better results
  • Less pain and bleeding during surgery
  • Decreased risk of side effects and infection
  • Faster, easier recovery as it cauterizes the gum line during treatment

Laser gum contouring is often combined with dental veneers for a complete smile makeover.

Achieving Your Even, Refined Gumline

Laser Gum Contouring Preparation and Procedure

Laser gum contouring offers the most effective and comfortable solution to excess gum tissue, requiring little to no preparation. However, you may be asked to avoid smoking and consuming alcohol in the time leading up to your procedure. When you arrive on the day of your treatment, Dr. Hill will administer local anesthesia to your gums to prepare you for surgery.

At The Art of Dental Wellness, we also offer sedation dentistry solutions to provide you with the most relaxing treatment experience. Dr. Hill will then map out the areas of gum tissue to be removed before beginning the procedure. Once you are ready, Dr. Hill will use a handheld laser tool to meticulously sculpt your gumline. Because the laser cauterizes the remaining gum tissue throughout the process, you can expect an optimally safe and comfortable treatment experience.

After Your Treatment

Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

Laser contouring involves relatively minimal recovery, with many patients returning to work the following day. However, you will need to avoid strenuous activity for several days after your procedure to ensure optimal healing. You will also need to be gentle with your gums during this time, using extra care when brushing and flossing and abstaining from spicy and crunchy foods.

The total time it will take for your gums to heal can range from a few days up to a couple of weeks. Post-procedure discomfort is typically minimal and easily manageable with over-the-counter pain medications.

Maintaining your Laser Gum Contouring Results

Results from laser contouring are semi-permanent. All you’ll need to do to maintain your beautifully sculpted smile is care for your gums with good oral hygiene.
