Advanced Technology for a Superior Treatment

Traditional methods of dentistry use surgical scalpels to eliminate excess tissue. Smile Montreal is at the forefront of groundbreaking dental technologies and provides our patients with the most cutting-edge treatments. Due to improvements in cosmetic dentistry, we perform the gum contouring procedure with laser technology that is superior in a number of ways.

Accuracy:

Laser contouring is more accurate than traditional manual methods. With an artistic eye, your dentist can remove incredibly small amounts of tissue covering the tooth for a straighter gum line and more precise results.

Speedy Recovery:

Laser gum contouring drastically reduces recovery time. Because the laser will cauterize your blood vessels, Dr. Casey generally does not need to place any stitches. You should experience almost no bleeding, minimal swelling, and very little discomfort. Any side effects should subside in a matter of days.

Reduced Risks:

Laser procedures carry almost no risk of infection. The laser will not actually touch your soft tissues, and the high energy of the laser will destroy oral bacteria. This technique is so safe and effective that dental lasers are also used to treat periodontal disease

What to Expect during the Gum Contouring Procedure
 

At Smile Montreal, we tailor every treatment to meet our patient's unique needs. However, a typical gum contouring treatment follows several steps:
 
"Laser gum contouring is a relatively quick, painless cosmetic procedure."

Consultation

Laser gum contouring is a relatively quick, painless cosmetic procedure. The dentist will first meet with you for a consultation and dental examination to evaluate your gums and oral health. We will discuss treatment options and your aesthetic goals.

Anesthesia

To begin the dental procedure, Dr. Casey will numb your gums and the surrounding tissues with local anesthesia. While this is usually enough to ensure comfort, some patients may still be worried about pain. We can provide different levels of sedation dentistry to induce a maximum state of relaxation.

Resculpting
 

The dentist will then reshape the soft tissues with an advanced diode laser. The high heat from the laser will instantly eradicate unwanted tissue and seal your blood vessels simultaneously. 

Recovery and Maintenance
 

The length of the procedure will vary but generally lasts one to two hours. Depending on the patient, the gums can recover as quickly as in a few days. You should refrain from strenuous physical activity on the day of the procedure, and eat soft foods in the following days to promote a speedy recovery. Pain is usually minimal and can be managed with over-the-counter medication.
