What is gingival contouring?

Gingival contouring changes the shape of your gums, resulting in a more esthetic and uniform appearance. If you have ever seen someone with a gummy smile, you probably noticed that their teeth looked too short and the gums appeared to grow over part of their teeth. This can cause self-consciousness about the way your teeth look.

We offer gingival contouring using laser dentistry in our Westwood, NJ dental office. Laser dentistry makes it possible for us to provide you with the most precise contouring, so the results look even and uniform.

Most patients report very little discomfort because laser dentistry is far gentler than traditional periodontal surgery methods. We have also fund that because there is no cutting or stitches involved, patients heal much faster.

Laser dentistry reduces bleeding because it seals the tissue as we proceed through the mouth.

Gingival contouring can also be used in conjunction with porcelain veneers or other cosmetic dental treatments to achieve a beautiful smile that makes you feel amazing about the way you look.
