A gummy smile occurs when an exorbitant amount of gum tissue grows down and starts to cover the teeth. It can cause smaller-looking teeth and a gummy appearance in your mouth.

What is laser gum contouring?

Laser gum contouring or gum reshaping utilizes soft tissue lasers to reshape the gumline. The main goal of this treatment is to reduce the protrusion of gum tissue that causes gummy smile and build a prettier smile.

What does laser gum contouring involve?

Dr. Amin Samadian’s team in San Francisco will perform laser gum contouring with a unique laser to reduce the overgrown gum tissue in small increments. Since the laser will seal your remaining tissues after the excess is removed, you don’t need to be concerned with any incisions or bleeding. Once Dr. Amin Samadian and his team have evened out your gum line, you’ll get a chance to see your brand new smile. It should only take a single appointment for your gum reshaping treatment to be completed. This procedure is frequently done in tandem with either Veneers and Crowns to achieve ideal proportions and symmetry. The best smile line must account for both the teeth and the gums.

Does laser gum contouring hurt?

While you may feel slight discomfort after the first day or so, it is only temporary. If you need it, Dr. Samadian and his team can prescribe over-the-counter pain medications to alleviate any pain you might feel. 

What results will I see?

After going through a gum reshaping treatment, you can show off your new smile with a renewed sense of confidence. You’ll enjoy better-looking teeth, a more balanced gum line, and an overall symmetrical smile.
