About Gum Sculpting
An abundance of gum flesh can hang over the top of the teeth and create a dental issue known as a "gummy look". This dental concern can be naturally fixed with gum contouring with the help of a laser. Many dental practices refer to this as periodontal aesthetic surgery. At Reunion Dental Care in Commerce City, CO our dentists perform gum contouring using a state-of-the-art laser to easily and safely trim off excess gum flesh to expose more of the tooth. While this service is sometimes known as an aesthetic treatment, gum treatment with laser also helps a patient's oral hygiene by improving the risk of infection by getting rid of areas where bacteria can hide. This assists in lowering the chance for periodontal disease and gum infections.

What to Expect
Gum reshaping and laser contouring can be accomplished directly inside our dental practice in Commerce City, CO using a light numbing agent to reduce any discomfort. It is common for patients to have anxiety regarding a dental treatment, so our dentists are prepared to offer sedation for individuals who cannot relax during treatment. When the treatment begins the gums and tooth enamel will be rinsed and thoroughly dried and then the laser device will slowly remove layers of gum tissue so that the gum looks straight. The gum contouring laser at Reunion Dental Care also supports to decrease bleeding and seal the shape of the gumline.
The treated gum tissue may be sensitive and puffy for a short time following laser contouring for the gums, but with consistent brushing, flossing, and mouthwash, the swelling will clear up and the gums will feel normal quickly. Our dentists will discuss the post-procedure guidelines along with possible antibiotics to help return to normal faster. Dental exams and cleanings at Reunion Dental Care are encouraged to help maintain healthy gums.
A laser contouring treatment for the gums may or may not be applied under insurance. Generally it is considered an aesthetic dental service, but some cases may need this treatment for dental care purposes. The staff at Reunion Dental Care will confirm each patient's coverage to get a better idea of their out-of-pocket expenses.
