Laser Gum Contouring
Everyone’s gumlines are different. Some are high, some are low, some are in between. Some may even be uneven.
Gum contouring is a procedure, done by a dental specialist, that reshapes or resculpts your gumline.
Many times, gum contouring is done for cosmetic purposes. But there are times when it may be a medical necessity.
Gum contouring is usually done by a periodontist or a cosmetic dentist. It’s an in-office procedure that’s typically done in one visit. You’ll typically have a follow-up appointment a few days or a week after the procedure. Your doctor will check your gums to monitor how you’re healing and look for signs of an infection.
