Laser gum therapy, which is also known as gingival sculpting, is a procedure that helps re-shape the gingival or gum tissue. It may also involve removing some of the gingival tissue. This procedure can be performed for cosmetic or health reasons. Many people opt to get laser gum therapy because their teeth appear too small due to excess gum tissue. They may also get this procedure if their teeth appear unusually-shaped.
Others get this procedure because of plaque and calculus accumulation that is the result of a lack of proper brushing or flossing. Esthetic smile enhancement often results in little to no discomfort, and many times requires little to no local anesthetic. It is typically a painless procedure and the recovery time is minimal. Furthermore, only one visit is required to complete this procedure.
