Once your orthodontic treatment is completed, we offer gum line sculpting to put the finishing touches on your new smile!
Soft tissue diode laser sculpting is used to cosmetically reshape the architecture of the gums. In some cases, there is redundant (extra) gum tissue that forms a pocket around the teeth creating a hard-to-clean area where bacteria can grow.
Removing the extra gum tissue can:
Improve the ability to keep the teeth clean
Improve your smile by lengthening the teeth
In other cases, the teeth may be straight, but the smile still appears “crooked” because the gum line is uneven. Balancing the gum line creates a symmetry and enhances the perception of a straight smile.
