Laser gum surgery
At Dallas Laser Dentistry of Dallas, Texas, patients can connect with Drs. Mary Swift and Morgan Petty to learn more about how cosmetic gum surgery can improve the appearance of their smile.
What is cosmetic gum surgery?
Cosmetic gum surgery is a special laser procedure that can even out the gum tissue to ensure an attractive and symmetric gum line. In some instances, laser treatments can also be used to treat a gummy smile, removing or contouring the gum line to increase the surface area of the teeth to achieve more balance between the teeth and gums.
What benefits can I expect from my laser gum surgery procedure?
First, Drs. Mary Swift and Morgan Petty evaluate patients to determine if they are a good fit for cosmetic laser gum surgery, most often in conjunction with designing a Smile Makeover. When it’s time for the surgery in the overall process, patients are appropriately sedated and anesthetized for their procedure. Patients will find that thanks to the use of laser light energy instead of scalpels and other invasive instruments, this procedure is relatively simple to get through and ensures faster healing and recovery time as there is no bleeding and minimal swelling – unlike what happens when a scalpel is used as it has been historically for this procedure. This means less time in our dentist’s chair and more time returning to normal activities following your procedure.
