This procedure is designed to help those who have uneven gum coverage or have gums that cover too much of the teeth. This procedure can also be used to counter gum recession. While the pockets between gums and teeth can harbor bacteria, contouring removes them and provides a better seal, making gums healthier.
First, the patient Is given an anesthetic to numb the gums and surrounding areas. Then a soft tissue laser is used to get rid of excess gum tissue. This laser is used to contour and reshape the gums, getting rid of excess space between the gums and the teeth. After having this procedure done, it is important to take care of the gums afterward to ensure the best results.
