Luckily, our team at Le Blanc General Dentistry and Aesthetics can restore the ideal teeth-to-gum ratio with laser gum contouring in Memorial, Houston, TX.

During your consultation, Dr. Kulic and her team will evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to determine if this treatment can enhance your smile and confidence.

Benefits Of Laser Gum Contouring

Traditional gum surgery is an invasive procedure that involves significant discomfort and a long recovery period. However, with our advanced laser gum contouring in Memorial, Houston, you can enjoy many benefits, such as: 

  • It is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require incisions or sutures.
  • The process is much more comfortable than conventional gum surgery. 
  • Using laser technology, we can precisely sculpt the gums to restore the ideal teeth-to-gum ratio. 
  • This technique has minimal risk of post-op complications such as bleeding or swelling of gums.
  • The recovery period is shorter than that of traditional gum surgery. 
  • It creates a well-balanced and harmonious smile that adds to your overall appearance. 

Procedure Of Laser Gum Contouring

Upon your initial visit to our dental practice, we will first examine your oral cavity and discuss your aesthetic preferences to determine your suitability for this treatment. The treatment process begins with the administration of local anesthesia to reduce pain and discomfort. 

Once your teeth and gums are numb, we will use a dental laser to remove the excessive gum tissues. The laser cauterizes the blood vessels as it cuts, minimizing the risk of bleeding and post-operative complications.

Our dentist will sculpt your gums with the utmost precision, ensuring cosmetically appealing results. After shaping and contouring the gum line, we will rinse your mouth and assess the overall appearance. Once it is complete, we will provide post-treatment instructions to help you recover smoothly.

what our patients say

Staff was wonderful and very welcoming. The office itself is beautiful and the amenities are fantastic with extra comfy chairs, beautiful lighting, and Netflix on the ceiling to watch during your appointment. My treatment was done very quickly and painlessly, and anything that was quoted to me that wasn't covered by my insurance was offered to me at affordable pricing with payment plan options. Thanks to the staff for such a stress free experience.

How Long Is The Recovery Period?

Compared to traditional gum surgery, laser gum contouring offered at our Memorial, Houston, TX, practice provides faster results with a shorter healing period. A few hours after the surgery, you may experience mild pain or swelling in your gums. This is normal to occur and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. To reduce gum swelling, place an ice pack over the area for a few minutes once or twice a day. It may take two to three weeks for a complete recovery. 

Our dentists will also instruct you to maintain a proper oral care regime, as it speeds up the recovery process. If you want to maintain the results of this treatment in the long run, schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings at our facility.
