gingivectomy-beforegingivectomy-afterConstructive and imaginative manipulation of the gum tissue can provide the necessary illusion to create the perfect smile when the anatomical aspects of the oral cavity and the face do not permit it. Laser is used to intimately negotiate the curves and folds of the gingival tissue without having to cut and suture them. The laser allows for free flowing sculpting and description of soft tissue by using an ergonomic pen-like laser handgrip.

This is a painless and quick method of achieving an exact and precise design of gingival tissue that will match and enhance the smile, especially when incorporating new porcelain veneers to alter the smile.
