At Hastings Family Dental, we are committed to providing advanced and effective treatments for enhancing your oral health and smile aesthetics. Laser gingivectomy is one of the innovative services we offer, utilizing state-of-the-art laser technology to precisely and gently reshape the gum line. This procedure is ideal for patients looking to correct excessive gum tissue that may contribute to a “gummy” smile or for those requiring gum reshaping for health reasons, such as to facilitate easier cleaning of the teeth.

The laser gingivectomy process involves:

  1. Initial Assessment: A thorough examination to determine if laser gingivectomy is the right option for you, considering your aesthetic goals and oral health needs.
  2. Laser Treatment: Using a specialized dental laser, we carefully remove and reshape the excess gum tissue. The laser seals blood vessels as it works, minimizing bleeding and reducing the risk of infection.
  3. Recovery and Aftercare: Recovery from laser gingivectomy is typically quick, with minimal discomfort. We provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth healing process.

Benefits of laser gingivectomy at our practice include:

  • Improved smile aesthetics by exposing more of the teeth for a balanced, harmonious look.
  • Reduced risk of gum disease by eliminating pockets where bacteria can accumulate.
  • Minimally invasive procedure with little to no discomfort and a fast recovery time.
  • Precise treatment outcomes, thanks to the accuracy of laser technology.
