How does gum contouring work?

If you decide to undergo our gum contouring treatment, Dr. Kapoor will numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfortable during treatment. Then, she will use a soft laster to gently remove excess gum tissue and create a more even gum line. Generally, we can perform the entire treatment in a single office visit and sometimes it can even take less than an hour. The length of your appointment will depend on how many teeth you want to treat.

Recovering after treatment

In most cases, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Your gums may feel sore or swollen for a few days to a week as the tissue heals. During this time, we recommend you eat soft, cool foods and avoid anything spicy. You should also refrain from eating food with sharp edges or small seeds, as these can irritate your gum tissue during the recovery.

Enhancing your smile

A laser gum contouring procedure from a skilled dentist like Dr. Kapoor can significantly enhance the appearance of your smile. At Monticello Family Dental, we believe that your smile and self confidence are worth it. You should be happy with your smile and it should add to your quality of life, not take away from it.
