Laser Treatment for Gum Disease
Millions of people across America are affected by gum disease, which can lead to serious oral problems and even increase risks to your overall health. With the state-of-the-art Diode Laser, harmful bacteria can be removed from the soft tissues around the teeth and prevent gingivitis or more serious levels of gum disease from getting worse. Plus, laser gum disease treatment can effectively seal the gum tissue to the teeth for a more aesthetically pleasant result and a healthier attachment to each tooth. When combined with a thorough teeth cleaning and removal of tartar, laser techniques offer an effective way to treat gum disease and minimize the recovery process.
Laser Gum Recontouring
People who have excessive gum tissue surrounding the teeth, or a “gummy smile,” can have the gums reshaped with laser dentistry. With precise and careful application of laser energy, we can improve the symmetry between the gums and the teeth by trimming the gum tissue and enhancing the appearance of your smile. Laser gum recontouring can also be an effective addition to porcelain dental veneer procedures, helping to attain a good level between the veneer and gums so that the ultimate results look as natural and beautiful as possible.
