Gum Recontouring

Serving Portland, Lake Oswego, & West Linn, Oregon

If you have a 'gummy' smile, with prominent gums that make you self-conscious, a gum recontouring procedure might be the right solution for you.

Using a highly accurate soft-tissue dental laser, we can resculpt your gums, removing excess tissue that detracts from your beautiful smile.

Use of the laser results in no bleeding, less pain, a quicker healing time, and more precise results than traditional gum recontouring which uses a blade.

Why gum recontouring?

When too much gum tissue covers your teeth, they appear shorter. Gum recontouring removes tiny amounts of gum tissue, according to a pre-determined plan. It is a short and simple procedure, and will give you a healthier, more youthful looking smile.

Why use lasers?

Traditional gum recontouring cuts away excess gum tissue with a blade. It is less precise and causes bleeding and longer healing times. With our precise soft tissue laser, there is no cutting. The laser vaporizes the targeted tissue, and you can have better, more accurate results, with less pain, no blood, and a shorter healing time.

If you'd like to learn more about laser gum recontouring and what it can do for your smile, please call or email our Cosmetic Dentistry serving Portland today to schedule your personal gum therapy consultation with Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Wendling and her cosmetic dentistry team who can answer all your gum recontouring questions.
