When it comes to having a great smile, there are many factors that should be considered. Well shaped, healthy looking gums help frame the teeth and improve the appearance of the smile. Swollen, red, uneven gums compromise the overall appearance and health of the teeth. Laser gum recontouring is a simple in office procedure that can adjust gum irregularities and improve the overall appearance and oral health.
The laser also promotes healing for infected and irritated tissues. Since there is a favorable response to laser treatment, the resultant healing is less complicated and often shorter when compared to traditional techniques. In many cases, the laser can also be used as a treatment for deep gingival pockets that harbour bacteria and cause gum disease. An additional benefit of dental diode laser technology is its ability to reduce the pain and longevity of cold sores and fever blisters
