Northridge Laser Gum Recontouring with Dr. Berrios

At Holistic Orthodontics, we know that insecurities about your smile can extend beyond just your teeth. After hearing patients complain about the appearance of a “gummy” smile, we decided to take action. That’s when we started offering the state-of-the-art Spectralase Diode Laser in Northridge, the most technologically advanced laser available for laser gum recontouring.

How Does the Spectralase Diode Laser Work?

It is a laser procedure that is typically performed using a topical anesthetic. The process reshapes or re-sculpts the gumline by removing excess gum tissue around the teeth. While it typically isn’t necessary from a medical standpoint, it can help patients feel more confident about the shape and appearance of their teeth.

Goals of gum recontouring:

  • It can reshape gingival tissue, creating a more even gum line for enhanced aesthetic appearance.
  • In cases where it is medically necessary, it can be used to uncover impacted teeth to allow faster eruption so that further procedures can take place.
  • It can reduce swelling of the gums around orthodontic appliances and improve oral hygiene.
  • It can free the mouth of problematic soft tissues that are placing tension on the teeth.

Benefits of gum recontouring with the Spectralase Diode laser:

  • Because the laser eliminates the need for cutting, general anesthesia is typically not necessary, and topical anesthesia will suffice for most patients.
  • Laser gum contouring is generally a comfortable procedure. Mild soreness can occur, but typically does not last long. Only minimal bleeding occurs from the laser as well.
  • Once the gum tissue is removed, it does not form again, meaning that results are permanent.
  • The process is quick, taking between 15-30 minutes.
