Do you have a gummy smile or dark gum pigmentation?
Laser Dentistry is a cutting-edge, non-invasive technology that makes your dental treatment much more comfortable and effective. With Laser Dentistry this can be resolved very gently and stress free in just one visit after a consultation
CROWN LENGTHENING (LASER GINGIVECTOMY)
A gummy smile can significantly compromise the symmetry and beauty of your smile. Crown lengthening is a safe method of correcting an uneven gum line and revealing more of each tooth for a bigger, brighter smile.
Crown lengthening takes only one appointment, and requires a recovery time of just a few days to a couple of weeks.
Removing even very small amounts of tissue can achieve striking effects.
Laser gingivectomy reduces the already low risk of side effects, shortens recovery time, and eliminates the need for sutures.
Does the procedure hurt?
Anesthesia is used to completely numb the treatment area. With advanced soft tissue lasers, the procedure is more comfortable than ever before. The tool seals tissue as it works, which results in minimal bleeding and inflammation. Compared to traditional methods involving a scalpel, laser gingivectomy involves very little recovery time.
Dark pigmentation around the gums is caused by melanin in the body. People with darker skin tones and of Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean or African descent are more prone to pigmentation of the gingiva. Dark gums can affect people of all races and ethnicities and now there is a way to get rid of those dark spots with laser technology at Coliseum Dental.
The use of a dental laser to remove the dark pigmentation on the gums is the easiest and least invasive way to go. The laser allows patients to receive the dark pigmentation removal treatment at the convenience of our dental office with minimal discomfort and great results.
