At G Orthodontics, our commitment to your radiant smile goes beyond straightening your teeth. We understand that the harmony of your smile also relies on the health and appearance of your gums. Laser gingivectomy is a transformative procedure we offer to refine the contours of your gums, ensuring a flawless smile following orthodontic treatment.


Laser Gingivectomy Explained:

Laser gingivectomy is a precise and advanced dental procedure that utilizes laser technology to reshape and remove excess gum tissue. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have undergone orthodontic treatment and seek to achieve optimal gum aesthetics and overall smile balance.


Key Aspects of Laser Gingivectomy:

Precision with Laser Technology:

  • The use of lasers, specifically diode lasers, allows for unparalleled precision in reshaping gum tissue. The laser precisely targets and removes excess or uneven gum tissue, creating a more refined and harmonious gum line.

Minimally Invasive Approach:

  • Laser gingivectomy is a minimally invasive procedure compared to traditional surgical methods. The laser cauterizes as it cuts, minimizing bleeding and reducing the need for sutures. This results in a more comfortable experience for the patient and faster healing times.

Addressing Excess Gum Tissue:

  • Individuals who have experienced the appearance of a «gummy smile» or have excess gum tissue covering their teeth can benefit significantly from laser gingivectomy. The procedure exposes more of the tooth’s surface, creating a balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.

Enhancing Periodontal Health:

  • Laser gingivectomy not only improves the visual aspects of your smile but also contributes to better periodontal health. By removing excess tissue, it becomes easier to maintain proper oral hygiene, reducing the risk of gum disease.

Benefits of Laser Gingivectomy After Orthodontic Treatment:

Refining Gum Contours:

  • After orthodontic treatment, there may be residual irregularities or asymmetries in the gum line. Laser gingivectomy refines these contours, ensuring that your beautifully aligned teeth are complemented by an equally attractive gum line.

Achieving a Balanced Smile:

  • The procedure helps achieve a balanced smile by addressing any disproportion between tooth exposure and gum display. This balance contributes to the overall esthetics of your smile.

Improved Oral Hygiene:

  • Laser gingivectomy facilitates improved access for oral hygiene practices, making it easier to brush and floss effectively. This supports ongoing oral health maintenance.

Enhanced Confidence:

  • A well-balanced and aesthetically pleasing gum line enhances your smile’s overall appearance, boosting your confidence and leaving a lasting positive impression.
