What is Gum Contouring?
Gum contouring

Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, can be used to even out your gum line or make your teeth appear longer, improving the appearance of your smile. It may also be done prior to bonding or veneers to help achieve better aesthetic results.

What are the benefits of using a laser for gum contouring?

Gum contouring with a soft-tissue laser versus a scalpel can result in quicker healing times, reduced need for stitches or sutures, and reduced risk of bacterial infection after the procedure.  This is largely due to the fact that the laser cauterizes the incision immediately, dramatically reducing bleeding during and after treatment.

Will my insurance cover laser gum contouring?

Coverage will vary from policy to policy.  We can help you determine your policy’s coverage when you come in for an appointment or free consultation.
